We spent this afternoon touring the 2018 Parade of Homes in Waco, Texas. This is going to be a photo-heavy post, so prepare yourself for some major interior design eye candy. There are 18 homes on the list, however we only had time to view seven of them. Hopefully I can make the trek back to Waco next week to view the rest of the homes, but of the seven homes we toured today, two stood apart as total knockouts in my mind, so those are the two I’m sharing with you today.
I have to admit I was a bit giddy to see that one of the homes on the list was a Magnolia home. That was the first stop we made obviously… I mean, it’s Chip and Joanna Gaines and their talents never cease to amaze.
I’m just a sucker for that white brick with black trim windows. And that beautiful warm wood double front door keeps everything from being too stark and cold. It’s just so good.
The formal dining room with pretty gray trim and crown molding:
The living room with that charming fireplace and cabinetry:
Love those chunky wood beams…
Across from the living room is the kitchen and breakfast area. How about that gorgeous marble backsplash?! I love that Joanna masterfully balances the crisp, cool whites and grays with that warm wood island and wide planked flooring.
Let’s take a closer look at that gorgeous marble, shall we? Notice the adorable cabinet pulls too! That color gray with the brass hardware is absolute perfection.
Right off the kitchen is a light-filled breakfast area:
The master bedroom was my favorite room in the house – that ceiling is a real show-stopper:
The master bathroom – love the double vanity – that wood tone is so yummy! I’m in love.
The tile, the chunky wood shelves, the bathtub… every detail is so elegant, yet not overly precious. Joanna Gaines has impeccable taste.
Okay, one last look at that gorgeous master bedroom…
Here are a few other bathrooms in the home:
How charming is that gingham (buffalo check?) wallpaper? So sweet.
Nice, spacious laundry room:
There was this little nook right off of the garage… super functional and cute!
And finally, here we have the back patio with outdoor kitchen:
Let’s move onto another favorite of today’s tour… this next home is built by Bhayani Brothers Custom Homes. Noman, the builder was a delight to chat with. His wife is the architect, space planner, designer, and she chose all of these gorgeous details. Are you ready for this?
How amazing are these doors?!
And can we please have a moment for this jaw-dropping kitchen? Perfection.
Here’s a closer look… I can’t even handle it. This beautiful backsplash is giving me life.
Hello gorgeous quartz waterfall island. I can’t even.
Off to one side of the kitchen is the breakfast area with this neat little lounge area.
Let’s head to the master bathroom… wait for it…
This mirrored arabesque tile! WHAT.
And tucked behind the modern bathtub is this awesome walk-through shower with dual shower heads:
Hope you enjoyed this little tour of the 2018 Parade of Homes in Waco, Texas! For more info and to see more homes on the list, visit The Heart of Texas Builders Association 2018 Parade of Homes website.
Wow!!! Both houses are stunning and so beautifully done. Did they advertise price points for these homes?
The Magnolia house was already sold, so it didn’t occur to me to ask about the listing price. Doh! The other home is listed at $1.1M.
Wow!! Anybody know what brand of windows/doors in either of these homes? Thanks!

Do you live near Waco? I live outside of Mexia! We might be neighbors.
I was there on Saturday, but only made it to five homes. We got caught in a crazy downpour at the Bayani house and gave up after that haha. That master bathroom was seriously gorgeous! Such a show-stopper. Chip & Jo’s House was amazing! I loved every bit.
Christy Bryant says
The white home is gorgeous! I am building a brick home very soon. Could you possibly give me the color of the home?
Hey Jen. Great pictures. I love the Magnolia house, was wondering if you can speculate on what the exterior colors are both the body and trim. Thanks Gary
Thanks for stopping by! My two favorite white paints for exteriors are Benjamin Moore’s Simply White and China White. My friend Sarah wrote a great article about the best white paint for exteriors: https://lifeonvirginiastreet.com/2018/04/the-best-exterior-white-paint-colors/. Hope that helps!

Where can I find the gorgeous backsplash with gold in the darker gray kitchen? Please!!!
Hi Jen. I am so in love with these homes. Wow. Is it possible to tell me what the paint color is of the light grey kitchen cabinets in the first house please? They did a bathroom in the same cabinetry and I can’t stop thinking about it. Thank you 🙂

Great post! Loved seeing all the beautiful details. Super pinnable! 🙂 XO, ~S
I know its a long shot but I am OBSESSING over that master bed frame. Any chance you know the manufacturer?
No, I’m sorry I don’t! It’s beautiful though! I did find a similar one here: https://rstyle.me/n/dbdyz9bjmyf Hope that helps!

I love this post! Thank you for sharing the Waco Parade of Homes .
I love the kitchen pulls and hardware in the first kitchen ( the gray Chip and Joanna one). Do you happen to know the brand or where to purchased the pulls/hardware from?
Unfortunately, I don’t know where the designers and builders sourced any of their materials and products. 🙁
It looks like rejuvenation or Schoolhouse
Hi Jen. Do you by any chance know the name of the paint color used on the kitchen cabinets in the Magnolia house? I love that color. Thank you.
Was wondering if you found out the color? I’m dying to know also!
laura stauch says
I too would luv to know the gray paint color on the kitchen and bath cabinets!!! Please share!!!
Andrea Hawkinson says
We are doing a remodel and I would love to find out the gray paint color for the kitchen and bath cabinets as well.
Hamilton Billiards says
Hi Jen, thanks for the blog post. Great content and beautiful pictures! I love how Joanne has incorporated the chunky wood shelves with the modern marble bathroom work top.
Beth Bassett says
What is the name of the gray exterior paint color of the trim?
The lighter gray?
Loved the pictures. I am trying to get ahold of house plans or the architect who did their season 5 episode 13.
It is a new build from the ground up. I would seriously consider building a house with some of the features. Do you have any ideas on how I could find out. Thanks
How can we find out what paint colors were used in the Magnolia home, particularly the grey ion the dining room trim and the one in the kitchen? Thanks
My suggestion would be to reach out to Magnolia about their Parade of Homes details. Good luck!
Glassbox Plus Architects says
Wow! Your article is very good. And the interior is also good.
