One of the greatest times of the year for home lovers happens in early March, as we transition into the annual Spring Parade of Homes Tour, which runs from Saturday, March 4, to Sunday April 2, 2017. What is great about the Spring Parade of Homes is you get a first-hand look at the latest in design trends, architecture, and interiors.
