It's official. Summer is over. OK...there's technically still 30 days left in the summer solstice, but let's face it, the days of carefree fun in the sun are gone. And while we love a good pair of fall boots and the kids back in school as much as anyone, it's definitely sad to see such a magical summer go. An incredibly rewarding summer at that! We feel like we ended this summer with a real BANG! Our French Moderne Manor parade home was awarded "Best Home" in the 2015 Utah Valley Parade of Homes People's Choice Awards. Woot woot! Not to mention, it swept the competition also winning Best Master Suite, Best Kitchen, Best Landscaping, and (drum-roll please) BEST INTERIOR DESIGN! It definitely makes all of our hard work on this huge summer project worth it! As one final adieu to summer, it seems only appropriate that we share with you the beautiful outdoor living space of the French Moderne Manor. I mean...aren't you jealous that you didn't get to spend your summer poolside here like us? Alright, there definitely was no lounging about on our end, but even arranging the furniture in 100+ degree heat was pretty dreamy. Just close your eyes and envision a secluded beach in the south of France lined with black and white cabanas. Actually, no need to envision it...we'll just show you!
