I have been busy working away on our new home. I have such a hard time selecting finishes for my own home! I have been designing homes for the past 14 years and have gathered way too much information that it's hard to make choices for myself!! I love and appreciate so many different styles that just when I think I want to go in one direction, I completely flip flop.....I would make a horrible politician! I know that I have a "look" to most of the projects I work on but a big part of me wants to do something very different for my own space. Plus, let's just say my taste is way more expensive than my budget!
So, we visited our builders design center to peruse our options. This is what I selected so far...
White Cabinets, Gray Silestone countertops with a carrara patterned backsplash, light wood floors (they are much lighter in person than this photo. They look similar to a raw wood finish). Sadly, the floors might need to go (I haven't had them priced yet and they look pricey!) I hope to find something similar within our budget that isn't too yellow or too orange. I am obsessed with this wood though, so fingers crossed!
Our house should be ready late August (so they say) and we have two more trips to the design center to continue to select materials. It's really hard to go with the style that I like here in Texas. Where white cabinets and carrara in the kitchen are so popular in the design world, people here think I am CRAZY to put it into my house (they were not even sure that they offered white cabinets). I am hoping people in Texas will embrace the light and bright....in case we need to move in the distant future!
I am seriously over thinking it all! Which is a character flaw in general :)
I'll keep the updates coming!
