I still have butterflies in my tummy. I don't want to mess this up! I'll be in this new house for a long time. Should I do carrera marble and take the risk of stains? Do I use black honed granite and risk seeing d-u-s-t? Is it acceptable to do oil-rubbed bronze door handles and hinges..but do chrome faucets? This is what I dream about..and why I'm going to bed at 2am every night. Yes, I get up with Carter in the 8 o'clock hour. Yes, I'm gaining weight. Yes, my face is breaking out. Yes, I have bags under my eyes. Yes, I'm dehydrated. Avert your eyes..look at the house!
|This is the entry...looking out! There is a porch framed right around the front door. It'll be where you see those pieces of wood on the floor coming our from the sides about 3 feet from where you come onto the little porch.|
|This is looking toward the kitchen : ) (Can't WAiT to see it this fall!!)|
|And to think..one day my kids will chase each other up and down these invisible stairs.|
|I just love this one. The repetition and symmetry in the boards..just an appreciation of my custom floor joists..just for our house! #worththewait|
So..here's my problem (today).
|I have this french country kinda style. Like..the stuff that I already own looks kinda like this.|
|And then I like this style too. Not so coordinating with my shabby vibe.|
|Gorgeous Restoration Hardware table, but not so gray/white modern.|
|Beautiful, beautiful herringbone backsplash, pale turquoise cabinets. : )|
|This kinda goes with the french/burlap vibe, but not the gray/white train of thought.|
|Back to gray/white beauty. Not jiving with the other. What do I do?|
I wanted to hyperventilate at the thought of committing. I know it's not the end of the world..but I didn't know we'd be picking stuff like that! I was planning for easy stuff like door knobs or something. Ha! They even wanted me to pick paint colors. For the entire house! Like today. Hell-o. Have you met me? I require samples on the wall to test the light at different hours of the day. I was freaking out. I can't lie.
So, now I'm going back on Friday to walk through the showroom with another person (for the DAY), and I'll meet with the team again next week to make *shudder* final decisions, hence throwing a wrench in our vacation. I'm prepared to sacrifice the 24 hour (each way) driving time for a good house that's planned. 'Cause I'm house-supportive like that. ; )
Now, if you have a good color on your wall..can I come see it (in the morning and afternoon)? I'm totally open to suggestions. So..how would you marry the khaki/tan/off-white to the gray/white?
Now you have some homework, and it's my bedtime. 2:00. Hugs!
|He says, "cheese!" And this? Is why I stay up late and get up early. So I don't miss a minute.|
