Each year when fall rolls around, builders in the Inland Northwest get a chance to showcase their new residential builds in two huge home shows, the Spokane Home Builders Association Fall Festival of Homes and the North Idaho Building Contractors Association Parade of Homes. Each show highlights the best residential homes of the season in various price ranges and reveals the latest in technology and innovation. Our parent company, Spokane Hardware Supply, Inc. is a proud supplier of hardware for over 40% of the showcased builders. This year, we had the pleasure of touring the homes to check out their different construction styles, architecture, and interior designs! Here are just a few of the amazing homes we got to see!
2022 Parade of Homes
The Magnolia by Greenstone Construction is the winner of the Spruce $$ Best Use of Innovation Award. Located in the North Place Community in Post Falls, Idaho, the Magnolia is just blocks from a golf course, outdoor recreation, trails, shopping and dining.
This home features a light wood and glass front door which is contrasted with a Schlage Addison handleset in matte black with a Schlage Connect Z-Wave Touch Deadbolt and opens up into a spacious entryway.
The entry leads you to a beautiful open floor plan including the kitchen, living and dining room. In the kitchen you will find custom natural wood cabinets with Allison by Amerock Factor pulls. Adding some brightness to the space is an expansive gray marble island.
If the massive island and double ovens weren’t enough, the kitchen also includes a huge walk in pantry. The left side of the pantry holds a wall of open shelving, while the right side features warm gray cabinets with clean white countertops. The space is perfect for a coffee bar or preparation area.
It is no surprise that The Kootenai by Selkirk Construction won the Cedar $$$ Award for Best Curb Appeal and Best Use of Innovation. Located in Hayden, Idaho the home is surrounded by forest hiking trails, two amazing golf courses and is minutes away from the lake.
As you enter this home you can’t help but notice the corner office with amazing glass barn doors that allow for both privacy and transparency. The great room is adjacent to the office and kitchen and exudes comfort and warmth. The fireplace and flat screen frame the room with hand crafted built-in black cabinets surrounding it.
In the kitchen, rustic design is paired with modern! All natural upper wood cabinets are paired with sleek black lower cabinets and stunning marble countertops. The Top Knobs Griggs Pulls and Kinney Knobs in honey bronze and complement this design style perfectly. To the left of the oven in what looks to be a pantry cabinet door, is actually an incredible walk-in full pantry. Floor to ceiling open shelving covers the pantry creating a plethora of storage possibilities.
Overlooking the Spokane River in Coeur d’Alene, the Whiskey River by Monarch Custom Homes is truly show stopping! Earning the People’s Choice Award for 2022, this magnificent contemporary home is the ultimate waterfront retreat.
It is no shock that this home is the winner of the Tamarack $$$$ Best Kitchen Award! Matte black Berenson Bravo pulls contrast white cabinets spanning the walls. Surrounded by floor to ceiling windows, all cooking is done with million dollar views in this gourmet kitchen.
Whiskey River also took home the Award of Tamarack $$$$ Best Master Suite. The master bedroom features beautiful vaulted ceilings and massive sliding glass doors leading to a balcony overlooking the water. Making your way to the master bathroom, you will find two bleached wood vanities paired with matte black square pulls and expansive mirrors. In addition, a soaking tub is positioned perfectly next to a water front window with Gatco Elevate towel rings placed conveniently on either side.
Down stairs offers a spacious walk-out basement with floor to ceiling windows capturing river views. Tucked into a hidden basement room is a private whiskey lounge. Deep blue cabinets span the wall showcasing beautifully lit whiskey bottles. No need to worry about the top shelf, the cabinets are equipped with a black rolling ladder that matches gracefully to the black cabinet pulls.
