House Selections

After choosing my new appliances, I went to Andrew Lauren (the interior design center our builder is working with) to choose the interior finishes for my new house.

I chose 18" x 18" Costa Rei Pietra Bianca tile flooring for the entire first floor. It looks more light gray and white in person than it does online:

And Shaw carpet in White Fox for the second floor (which looks much lighter in person):

The walls are going to be painted Birch White by Dunn Edwards. Again, it looks much lighter in person and is more of a creamy white than a light beige.

I chose espresso cabinetry for the kitchen and bathrooms:

Which is going to be paired with Bianco Antico granite countertops in the kitchen and white marble in the bathrooms:

Hardware isn't included with the cabinetry but I'm planning on purchasing some of the LANSA handles from IKEA:

To give you an idea of what it's going to look like altogether, this is what it looked like in the design center (minus the carpet). Left to Right: Floor tile, wall color, grout color, espresso cabinetry, Bianco Antico countertops:

What do you think? I liked the selections in the show room so let's hope they look as good when they're installed in my house!


  1. Fun times! Your selections are great in my opinion!

  2. I think it's your choices!! I have the Lansa handles from IKEA and they are real statement makers.

  3. That is going to be one great looking kitchen! the handles too.

  4. When deciding and planning out your new kitchen it may be advantageous to try and fit a utility sink into the mix.
