The following is a breakdown of the Parallax theme (version 3.0 +) homepage, as seen here in our live demo shop.
1 & 2 & 3 Logo, Main Menu and Announcement Message:
To upload your Logo, Menu and Announcement message, go:
Online Store > Themes > Customize Theme > Header (in the Sections tab)
Here you will see options to upload your shop logo and secondary logo.
Also there are options for setting which menu you want in the header, display settings and more:
4. Image with text overlay
The first Section after the Header is an 'Image with text overlay' section.
By default it is called ''Parallax Shopify Theme' when you begin customizing your theme.
Note that there are several of these banner-style sections on the homepage!
Display an image with an overlayed Heading, Subheading and linkable button.
5. Featured promotions
Customize theme > Sections > Featured promotions
Upload images with headings and links to your featured promotions.
Display by 2, 3 or 4 features per row.

11. Featured collection
Customize theme > Sections > Featured collection
Display a collection on your homepage, with a custom Heading, set the number of products per row, limit the amount of products that are displayed (if your collection is large this is helpful).
12. Rich text with Image
By default, this section is called 'Talk about your brand'. You can customize this text.
This section allows you to display text and an image (our live demo site does not have an image uploaded and thus it only displays text).
You can add more of these sections to your homepage by going:

13) Logo list
This can be added in the Customize theme > Sections > Add section > Logo list. You can upload up to 20 logos with optional links.
You can add and customize this section in the Customize theme > Sections > Add section > Testimonials. Here you will have options to write the testimonial, the customer name, the customer site and link to the customer site or any page you want.
15. Image with text overlay
Please see 8.-10 to add another 'Image with text overlay' section.
