So Pretty

We went in on Saturday to the design center. It was so FUN and surprisingly easy. They schedule 8 hour appointments and it took us like 3 and a half hours. Sadly we still have to go back on Friday because they didn't have the custom elevation rendering ready for us to sign off on. That really is our own fault since we gave them changes the day before our appointment. So here is what we picked.This is it, this is my house in a nut shell. The paint and carpet samples look a little pinkier in the picture than they did in real life, but you get the idea. We are doing the dark wood cabinet color in the white cabinet's style. My kitchen island will be the white color with an ebony glaze (like in the cabinets) with bead board sides. The light colored granite will be on the kitchen counters and we picked stainless appliances. We are doing the dark wood laminate(it has our knobs and drawer pulls in it in the picture) on the kitchen and the dining nook floors. The large light tan tile will run on a diagonal from the entry all the way to the garage door. And the tile looking vinyl on the right will be in the upstairs bathrooms. And the pretty tile in the left corner will be around the fireplace. All the wood will be maple with a toffee stain and ebony glaze like the cabinets and all the metal finishes will rubbed bronze. and the dark granite next the the white marble will be in the master bath. And I picked out the cutest doors that have raised bead board panels.

This is what the bathroom fixtures will look like.

And this is the light that will be hanging in the entry way (except it will be in the rubbed bronze color)

So there you have it. I can't wait for it to be built so we can move in and start decorating. After living in rentals for the past 6 years it will be so nice to finally have a place of our own. Althought we know that building house can be a long and lame process so we are just praying that everything will go smoothly and we can move in before Emma starts school in the fall.
