Parade to “The Home of Your Life!”

It always takes me a while to mentally transition from summer to fall-more so than with other changes of season-but then I see the slight tinges of orange and red slowly painting the leaves or get a whiff of autumn spices and realize that fall is in fact here!   For The Homes By Dickerson team, the beginning of fall is a flurry of activity as we prepare for the largest showcase of homes throughout the year-The Triangle Parade of Homes.  We have poured through design ideas, sketched, and dreamed.  We have swept, scrubbed, painted, and planted.  We have walked each community, searching for ways to improve all of the little details to ensure a stellar experience for you.  Now we take a breath, step back and present you with 9 amazing homes that embody everything we are and believe in as a custom, high-performance builder.

We invite you to join us over the next three weekends (October 6-7th, 12-14th, and 19th-21st: 12pm-5pm each day) for the 2018 Parade of Homes where you will see your dreams and visions come to life! Intricate trim detail, gorgeous woodwork, decadent tile patterns, custom layouts, beautiful elevations, curb appeal, and so much more await you at every turn.  The only thing that is missing is you!  Tour Homes By Dickerson’s 2018 Parade of Homes and find “The Home of Your Life” today!

Parade to The Home of Your Life in the Bristol II at Briar Chapel!

Parade to The Home of Your Life in the Bristol II at Briar Chapel!

Our next venture has us traveling away from the Cape Cod-inspired Fairfield Cottage and heading towards the rather transitional Bristol II at Briar Chapel!  Soft hazy hues and nautical decor is replaced by a metropolis loft feel where elegance, rustica, and modern all propitiously converge, resulting in a transitional tone carried in the design.

Whites and taupes are used throughout the floor plan such as the white kitchen cabinetry and taupe kitchen island.  These colors provide almost a paradox as the bright white lends itself to clean lines and is a stark contrast to the warmth of the taupe.  Paradox or not, the colors successfully create and support the intended theme of the home.  Take a moment to peruse your surroundings.  Do you see the Calcutta marble backsplash in the kitchen or the aged antique brass pendants over the island?  It is details such as the dark honey flooring and open shelving in the butlers pantry which provide additional layers of texture and color to this design.  Follow that beautiful dark honey tone upward as it is also included in the wood header between the family room and kitchen as well as at the fireplace mantel.   Also in the family room, the white cortsite ledgestone surround blends wonderfully with the soft gray of the furnishings but also give some composition to the room and open layout.    Another intriguing detail is the “X” trim design used in a myriad of locations including the ceiling, kitchen cabinets and stairway newel posts.  The stairs feature wrought iron handrails, a must to completing the mixture of metals used in this home.  In fact, one of the most compelling features to this Bristol II is the mixture of materials found in all of the light and plumbing fixtures and how well they complement one another as well as the entire decor of the design.

This study is truly one of my favorite rooms we have ever built.  The incongruous make-up of the custom shelving lends itself to an artistic design.  The lines fondly work together with those of the sliding glass doors.  Paired with the antique brass of the wall lights, the result is wonderfully rustic modern, ready for the big city itself.

Parade to The Home of Your Life in the Fairfield Cottage at Briar Chapel!

Parade to The Home of Your Life in the Fairfield Cottage at Briar Chapel!

Our Parade journey continues on to the master-planned neighborhood of Briar Chapel where two custom designs by Homes By Dickerson await you to tour: The Fairfield Cottage and The Bristol II.  Both homes are of the highest quality craftsmanship and both are equally exquisite.

As you walk through the Fairfield Cottage, the urge to grab an afghan and a hot cup of tea is overwhelming.  The Cape Cod-inspired design is found in everything from the bold use of navy  to the combination of black and chrome fixtures.  Classic, clean lines, and understated elegance is what this home is about, all of which is emphasized by our nautical-themed decor.   The exterior introduces the color palette with complementary stone work, gray siding/shake, and navy shutters.  Inside the theme continues through the tongue and groove details, the classic gray hardwoods, and the use of lantern-like light fixtures.  The dining room is a mixture of Westcott Navy walls enhanced by Repose Gray trim and a chrome lantern fixture but the real gem of the home is the gourmet kitchen where the island and hood are a brave navy, the quartz counter tops and perimeter cabinets are featured in a crisp white, and the back splash is a two-toned glass arabesque mosaic tile.

One other room which will completely wow you is the master bedroom which boasts 15 foot vaulted ceilings with tongue and groove details, exposed rafters, and an incredible hanging light fixture!  The adjoining master bath will also not disappoint with its gray hardwood-like tile, navy cabinetry and simply elegant chrome fixtures.
