We kept our hardwood floor, because it's this gray/tan distressed wood that has pretty wide planks and is super contemporary looking - I heart it. And we kept our super dark cabinets, but the carpet and granite and bathrooms we completely changed, which you'll see below in the pictures. Oh - and notice that in every picture, the carpet and wood looks different, depending on the lighting. I think the most accurate picture to see what our wood really looks like is in the pic that is just the wood - a close up. In other pictures it looks almost greenish, but trust me, it's not!
I had fun at the design center doing all this, but I'm glad this part is over, because my brain is FRIED. If I have to look at one more sample of carpet I may (non-bulimicly) puke. Also, pretty sure I just made up that word. BULIMICLY. Heh. I like it!
So, here are our choices:
This is the kitchen/front entry/dining/mud room colors and choices. We chose the espresso cabinets with the lighter wood floor and the granite. THE GRANITE. I love it. I want to eat it. Our carpet looks good too, though it's hard to see that the carpet meshes well with the wood in this picture. I like our carpet, but it did end up being a little lighter than I anticipated, and that makes me nervous considering all the small humans and animals that will be frolicking on it, but hopefully it'll work out just fine!
Another shot of the cabinets with the carpet and wood:
A close up of my granite. I want to take it behind the junior high school and get it pregnant. And make cute little Brie/Hot Granite babies with it!
Our wood floor. Purty.
Making sure Mila's skin tone complimented our choices. Yay! It does! ;)
Mila was very opinionated when it came to our tile choice. And when she got bored, she just sucked on her feet.
This is what the kid's bathroom and our laundry room will look like - the flooring and cupboards and counter top. We had to stay with a gray-tan/dark wood theme to match the rest of our house.
And this is what the master bath will look like - the cupboards and countertops will be the same as in the laundry room and other bathroom, but we changed the flooring to this really beautiful gray slate to make it a little different and set it apart.
Here is Brandon and Cade and Uncle Bwycie at our lot this afternoon. It is HUGE.
Me at our lot, declaring, IT IS GOOD. (It was windy and cold and I was wearing glasses, so my precious kittens, do not judge!)
This picture was actually taken a couple weeks ago, but I keep forgetting to post it. We had just signed our life away to build this house, and we're pointing to the lot we chose in (obvious) utter delight. I mean, doesn't Brandon look thrilled? ;)
Until week 4. Bye kittens!
