The annual Parade of Homes returns this month, offering the largest official showcase of the latest in home design trends in the Greater New Orleans area.
Mary Kelly — chair of this year’s Parade of Homes and builder outside sales for Ferguson Bath, Kitchen & Lighting Gallery — looks over lighting choices for this year’s 19 homes at Ferguson’s Metairie showroom to ensure only the best designs are featured. Presented by the Home Builders Association of Greater New Orleans over two weekends — July 17 and 18 and 24 and 25 from 1 p.m. to 5 p.m. — the POH offers a free chance for anyone to experience the homes through either an in-person tour or a 360-degree 3D virtual tour, accessible by downloading the “New Orleans Parade of Homes” mobile app from the Apple Store or Google Play. The app also includes a full list of homes, including locations, directions, builder contacts, sponsors and vendors. HBAGNO.org/paradeofhomes
