A couple of weeks ago, I attended the Dhahran Garden Group’s annual Home & Garden Tour – an amazing showcase of some of the homes and gardens that we have here in Dhahran! What I love about this event is that you get to see a lot of the same types of houses in the compound, done up in completely different ways. It’s also a great way to see how creative people can be, and what brilliant ideas they’ve come up with to make their homes more comfortable and livable. I can guarantee that some of you live in the same kinds of houses, and never even thought of some of these design ideas 🙂
The Dhahran Garden Group conducts 3 tours throughout the day, and each tour usually lasts about 2 to 2.5 hours. Everyone also rides in a bus together, so that you get to spend some quality time with your old friends or meet some new ones 🙂
So if you missed out on the tour… today’s your lucky day! Here are just some of the highlights of the beautiful homes and gardens that our tour group saw that day…
The Kellogg’s Garden
Built in the 1930’s, this home is actually considered one of the oldest in the compound.
The Haas’s Garden
This is the home of a board member of the Dhahran Garden Group, and ex-home & garden tour organizer!
The Verma’s Garden
The Verma’s love to recycle items to use in their garden… ie: painted logs as plant holders, salad bowls as bird feeders and even a daybed for reading and stargazing!
The Remkus’s Garden
Craig Remkus is the mastermind behind this beautiful yard!
The Culhane’s Home & Garden
A super chic home and garden, staged to perfection! Check out the unique wine glass chandelier in their dining room…
The Helfrich’s Home & Garden
I am a huge fan of Maggie’s home especially since it was the first one I covered for my blog :)! Here is a picture of her updated entryway – she changes it seasonally – and check out The Design Souk’s Home & Garden Feature on Maggie’s home for the full scoop!
The Polega’s Garden
I love the Polega’s yard… I want my yard to look like this!
The Niven’s Home & Garden
You can tell that Teresa is a stylist and interior designer by looking at her home. Her indoor and outdoor dining and entertainment space is beautifully thought out!
The Kim’s Home & Garden
Aahhh another house that I absolutely adore! Here are some updated pictures of Erlina’s outside space as well as a new mural on her famous chalkboard dining room wall! Make sure to check out Erlina’s Home & Garden Feature for details on her comfortable yet stylish home and garden.
Lastly, the tour ended off with a fabulous tea at one of the local homes!
Thank you to the Dhahran Garden Group and all their participants for a fabulous tour 🙂
