Lots of us get inspiration — or just go to gawk — at the home tours held each year across the Twin Cities. In June, a new kid on the block is putting out the welcome mat. The Artisan Home Tour is organized by the same outfit that stages the Parade of Homes — the Builders Association of the Twin Cities. The 24 upper-bracket luxe homes, from Afton to Orono, will be open June 7-15 and are valued at $1 million-plus. Many are architect-designed and embellished with upscale finishes and first-class craftsmanship. Decorated spaces showcase the latest looks in wall color, flooring, tile and lighting. The properties will be fully landscaped, too. artisanhometour.org
