Ok, here are some new shots of the house finally!! I have to apologize for the specks in the photos...something got on my lens :(
This is the view of the kitchen from the living room. Notice my Visual Comfort fixtures? Love them and I am so excited to have them in my home! The kitchen has actually held up progress as of late. The island is the wrong finish than what I wanted so replacement cabinets had to be ordered and will finally be here this week! That means countertops, appliances, and plumbing can go in! Yay!
View into the kitchen and breakfast nook...
Our Laundry room, which may be my favorite room so far! I am loving all the storage...there is even a pull out trash can hidden in one of the cabinets! Our old house just had wire shelving so this is a big, exciting upgrade for me!
This is the Master Bath. There is granite countertops that still need to go in and a framed mirror above the vanity. I am in love with the Ann Sacks Penny tile in the shower and I gaze at it lovingly every time we go to the house.
Stuff like this can mess up a project too! Builder wasn't really paying attention to where the toilet was and it was about 2" from the tub so he had to move it over, which isn't exactly easy after the tile is in! So, now the toilet is in the right spot and the tile needs to be fixed.
This is my daughter's bathroom. It is a jack and jill bathroom, but for right now, she can enjoy the bathroom all to herself since there's not another little one to share it with yet.
All in all, the house is moving along. There is definitely a long punch list forming but when isn't there one in new construction? My family and I are more than anxious to get in there asap and we have our fingers crossed we will be there for Thanksgiving!
Happy Monday everyone! I know I have been very absent but there are big changes on the horizon for me! I can't let you know yet but as soon as I can, you all will be the first to know! And, I have been totally slacking with pics of the new house, but please stay tuned tomorrow for some new shots (we are getting very close to a complete house!!)!
So, we are still waiting for the new house to be complete...it's so close and I can see it all coming together now! I am dying to decorate the front porch for fall, fingers crossed, it will still be fall when we move ;)
I am dying over all these entryways! Fall is my absolute favorite time of the year, where I pretend it's not 85 degrees out and dream of all the outfits I am going to wear when I can finally pull out my leather boots, when the slightest dip in the temperature feels so cold, and I can paint my nails my favorite taupe OPI color.
I believe in this 100%. I haven't always, thinking that if one person does this or if this happens, then I will be happy. But that isn't the case at all. I am in charge of my happiness and I have to embrace every moment in order to achieve happiness. I have felt very lost the past few months and I am on the constant search for what is going to bring me back to happy and content, but I know that the search starts and ends in the same place, me.
I am an interior designer located in the Tampa Bay area. I love anything Southern, my family and friends, and of course great design. This blog is a place where I put my design ideas, inspirations, and other neat things I discover. I believe great design should be classic but easy to live in and every room in your home should be beautiful, no matter the budget.
