Back From Vaca With Tons of Inspiration from Model Homes in Arizona

Hello Loves, I hope you are all having a super good summer so far. 
We just got back from a little vacation last night to see my 
In-Laws in Arizona. One thing I always love to do down here 
is visit furnished model homes, since they have so many of them. 
So without further chatting, here are some of my faves 
(Not In Any Particular Order) 
Just enjoy the eye candy peeps!!!!

I wanted to steal all the pillows here

This one was my favorite Family Room

I sooo want a sectional like that in our family room

Here is another gorgeous Family Room

Ohhh that silver platter was calling my name

Super gorgeous kitchen

Our little boy sure liked this 
Minecraft Style Game Room

I think a pool would be mandatory if we lived in AZ 

Gorgeous entry

Oh check out these wooden beams on the ceiling...LUV IT

Check out this bathroom, the tub is behind 
the shower door

Gorgeous courtyard 

And another bathtub situated in the shower

Love this doggie style mudroom...woof woof

  1. We did the same when visiting near Phoenix at Christmas. When myself or my son's mother-in-law commented on something special, my daughter-in-law would quietly chime in with 'upgrade' meaning it didn't come in the basic package. Now when I make a change here, I text her with 'upgrade'.
    I think it all came about because they built a new home there just last year and she was in the know--haha
    Hope you had as much fun as we did!

    1. Hi Gayle thanks so much for leaving me a comment . I tried to reply directly to your comment but you came up as a non reply blogger. THanks so much again!!! Christine from Little Brags

  2. Wow...I love all of these!!! The bathrooms with the tub in the shower are so chic and I love the way they're all decorated! It really is fun to look at model homes!
    I'd love for you to link up with the Share The Wealth Sunday Blog Hop that I co-host. We go live every Saturday at 7pm (


  3. This was so much fun to see, Christine! My hubby and I are considering retirement outside of Phoenix. I am pleasantly surprised to see so many wood floors in these homes instead of tile, and I just love those beamed ceilings! I could get used to those views, too.

  4. Oh I love a house tour Christine!! These are all fabulous and I've pinned a few ideas, thanks! Love the doggy decor mud room!

  5. Christine!

    Are you now, or have you ever been, a PROFESIONAL PHOTOGRAPHER?!

    I mean, REALLY, the contractors should hire you!

    1. Thanks so much for another sweet comment. I hope you get this reply since I can't track down a reply email for you!

  6. Wowsie Christine. I love them all. Loved the tour and so right if you lived out there a pool is a must. Thanks for the tour. Loved your pictures too so beautiful. The builders need to give you a commission.

  7. OH my GOODNESS! How do you choose which one you like the best? They are all just so amazing!! Great pics, and can't wait to see what you create with all of these inspirational goodies :)

  8. Wow, which one do we want? Love the scenery. Were you in Phoenix? I lived in Tucson for 20 yrs. then we moved to San Diego area after hubs got out of Air Force. We had moved to Co. springs after he got out but went back to Tucson for year or so then to San Diego area. There are things I definitely miss about Tucson but not intense heat of summer months.It's hot enuf here in Grand Junction area, we live few miles west of G.J.
    That was such fantastic tour of those homes. As other commentors said you take awesome photos. What's not to like huh?
    Now all we need to do is hit lottery.
    Last year we were going to move back to Tucson where hubs/I met many years ago but our house was upside down, bummer, even had buyer. Too hot in Tucson anyway but do have good friend there and some relatives. Our two youngest kids live here and oldest son lives in San Diego area so moving to Tucson would have been nice, get to see son/his boys when they visit in summer from KY. Only few hours from Tucson to San Diego.
    When my Mom was doing really badly after her heart surgery many years ago I would drive to Tucson to see her after I got off work on Fridays in San Diego. Then I'd drive back to S.D. on Sunday afternoon. I did that for several weeks til she was put in convalescent home. Later on we moved her to San Diego area.
    Really enjoyed your awesome tour. Makes me lonesome for AZ. Have great week

    1. Thanks so much for another visit!!!! I hoe you get this reply since you come up as a non reply blogger. We were in Surprise AZ visiting the in-laws!!!! xoxoxoxo Christine

  9. I loved going to look at model homes when we were looking for a new home. Seeing a wide variety of styles always gave me decoration inspiration. There are some model homes open just a few miles down the freeway so you may have inspired me to go check them out!

  10. Wow what amazing images! They're beautiful! I really like the first one! Great to connect via the "Making Memories Mondays" link party :-)

  11. I've been to those homes, and they are gorgeous! :)

  12. Thanks for the arm-chair tour!! It's so fun seeing the tile, flooring, and furniture selections. Also the color choices surprised me a bit. I didn't expect so much darkness in AZ.
    Hope you had a great time away!
    All the best for an extraordinary start to your week! ;)

  13. Glad you shared what AZ living is like. Beautiful homes indeed.
