2021 Summit County Parade of Homes

Hey there, my bloggy friends. SN and I recently spent a fun weekend in Colorado. The highlight of our trip was gawking at astonishing dream homes in Breckenridge and Silverthorne. That's right, it's time for our favorite annual interior design event, the 2021 Summit County Parade of Homes.

You can still catch the last weekend of the parade. Homes will be open September 25 and 26, 2021. Tickets are $20 each and include a copy of Mountain Living magazine (only the current issue, not a subscription like in previous years - phooey). We were hesitant about attending because only 6 homes are included this year, but they were so over-the-top phenomenal that we felt we received a good value. One home in Breckenridge even included wine and cheese, along with an assortment of other goodies.

Conveniently, the 3 homes in Silverthorne are located close to each other, as are the 3 in Breckenridge. This made for a speedy parade - we arrived at the first home at 10 am and were back in Salida, CO in time for happy hour and shopping. SN scored a bargain on a new lamp for his office. He also took me car shopping AFTER happy hour (quite intentional, as I was suddenly agreeable to the idea of buying a new car for the long drive home to NM). Luckily there wan't even one Mach-E on the lot. 

Side note: Can a Ford Mach-E make the drive from Salida, CO to Albuquerque, NM without running out of battery? Happy hour me thought so, but my current self is not so sure. Anyway...

I'd mentally written a detailed blog post full of interior decorating ideas and inspiration from the 2021 Summit County Parade of Homes, but I'll be honest with you - I have absolutely no time to write it. I'll fill you in on then details in a later blog post. For now, let's just say my new job is going very well and is keeping me very busy. This year, we'll have to settle for photos only. 

Maybe it's for the best. You can more easily imagine yourself at home in these luxury properties, enjoying a latte (from your built-in $7,000 espresso machine, obviously) on one of your many balconies, without the interruption of a bunch of text.

If you search my previous 'Parade of Homes' articles (see that handy little search bar above?), there's enough details from past parades to hold you over until 2022 (or at least until the Albuquerque NM Homes of Enchantment Parade of Homes next month).
