Now that you’ve seen the plan and the outside of the house, it’s time to show you around the inside. These photos were taken right before we moved in. I thought I’d give you the “clean slate” tour.
Since our move in November we’ve added lots of love and chaos (and furniture, of course) and I’ll show you some updated shots in another post. We haven’t done much decorating yet as we’re just living in the space and trying to figure out how we want the space to flow and what we need/want for each space. That list is getting longer and more specific every day, and the boys are begging me to decorate their rooms, so I suspect I’ll be busy this fall with adding some touches to the house that will make it feel even more like home. And what better time than fall than to cozy up the house?!
The powder room is behind the door pictured above.
The coffered ceilings in the family room is definitely the best bang for our buck item we put in the new house. LOVE!
As you saw in the plan post we decided on a very open floor plan, particularly because we like entertaining (and also for keeping an eye on the kiddos). Hopefully you can see in these photos that though it is quite open, the spaces have some distinct separations. Like how the kitchen can’t be seen from the front door, and the dining room is tucked in the corner of the house – close to the kitchen but out of the way for a little dining privacy.
Most of our finishes were selected from our builder’s selections so I don’t have specific details on all the items in the house, like the floors or doors. But here are some of the big items:
Paint colour: Sherwin Williams Repose Grey
Kitchen countertops: Caesarstone Bianco Drift
Kitchen sink: Kohler
All the light fixtures except the dining room: Canarm
Dining room light fixture: The Bay – Renwil Perugia
