Parade of Homes with Designer Shannon

Parade of Homes is the largest new home tour in the Birmingham metro area. For two weeks, residents of the metro Birmingham area can tour new home builds free of charge. This year, Urban Home Market was invited to stage a home built by the extremely talented team of Murphy Home Builders. Our interior designer, Shannon Appling, took ahold of this incredible task and created an exceedingly beautiful oasis. All homes in the Parade were judged on Tuesday, April 19th by builders from the state of Alabama. Urban Home Market is proud to announce we won first place in design! Thank you to Murphy Home Builders for trusting us with the responsibility of bringing beauty to your home's interior and thank you to our super talented interior designer, Shannon. Urban Home Market is blessed to have you on our team and apart of our family!

The parade home is open for viewing Friday, April 22 & 29, Saturday, April 23 & 30 and Sunday, April 24 & May 1 from 10:00 a.m.- 6:00 p.m.

"This year's parade home allowed me the opportunity to express my love for natural elements. I was able to introduce a few of the new jewel Pantone colors and mixed metals that are forecasted for 2016. Although many metals can take on a sterile or contemporary feel, I enjoyed using warm metals such as brass and bronze. Intertwining them with warm, casual pieces such as soft textiles (cowhide area rugs and fur ottomans) created more of an inviting casual space while maintaining comfort and sophistication."
