Back to the Future: 2012 BIA Parade of Homes, Foundation Home


The BIA Parade of Homes has 60 years of history behind it, and in 2012, it’s paying tribute to its origins. In the middle of that tribute is Truberry Custom Homes, which is designing the Foundation Home for this year’s Parade.

The Foundation Home will incorporate the theme throughout every room of the house, says Mary Shipley-Smith of Mary Shipley Interiors (Columbus Ohio); Truberry’s interior designer for the house.

"Bringing in chairs that fit with that age is part of the plans, as are era-appropriate bright colors, like blues and yellows. The home’s colors eschew earth tones for sophisticated grays and blues, but offsetting those colors will be mandarin tangerine, which is not identical to the popular orange colors of the 1950s but is very close," Shipley-Smith says.
