Jaren and Jake both made posts about choosing the right decorations and colors.  This is one of the many hurdles a new home owner faces as they construct their dream home.  We are in the process of selecting our finish work.  Our foundation has not even been dug yet.  Really we have been in the process of selecting our finish work for several years.  Every year I and my wife attend the Parade of Homes.  This year we will attend two of them.  I am not sure how popular this event is in other areas or if it is even available in other areas, but around Utah it is a fairly well attended affair.  The parade is a great way to get new ideas for your home and to visualize what those ideas may actually look like.  We take a camera with us.  I am not sure if the organizers appreciate this, but it is difficult to remember anything after tenth house.  This year we saw some great ideas some of which we hope to put into our new home.
