House Selections

December 29, 2011

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:



New Appliances

December 28, 2011

Last Thursday I went to Westar to pick out the appliances for my new house and this is what I chose:





I don't have the paperwork in front of me so I'm not sure if those are the right models or not but I think they're close from what I can remember.

I have stainless steel appliances from Frigidaire in my current place and I love them so I'm looking forward to having similar but updated models in my new place!

House Colors

December 19, 2011

The Saturday before my current house sold I was at my new house choosing all of the options I wanted along with the color scheme for the outside of my place. There were 12 different color scheme options to choose from and I ended up going with the one below:



It's a mix of Southwestern colors and it's the same color scheme that's on the model of my home (shown below) except that my front and garage doors will be the bottom orangey-red color instead of brown.



We're scheduled to close on my current home tomorrow and once that happens we'll be one step closer to getting a build date! I'm so excited :D

SOLD!!!

December 5, 2011

Merry Christmas to me - my place has SOLD!!!


If the inspection and everything else that goes along with selling a place goes smoothly, the closing date will be December 20th and the building of my new place will happen some time after that!

The best thing to come out of the deal? I get to rent my current place back from the buyer (they bought it as an income property) meaning I don't have to look for a temporary rental or pack up and move right away :D

BEST. DAY. EVER!!!

Pucker Up

December 2, 2011

I'm a huge fan of David Bromstad and would LOVE for him to come to my house and design a room but unfortunately I don't live in Miami and I doubt he'd travel to Tucson. Despite all that, I'm excited to get a print of David's art to hang in my new home:

Even though it's not an original Bromstad, it's close enough considering I've loved that particular painting since I saw it in a Color Splash episode a while back. And besides, who doesn't love a nice pair of red lips?! ;)

I'm also seriously thinking about buying this print too to pair with the lips:

Above the bed maybe? Or across from the bed flanking the bathroom door? I suppose I should wait until the house is actually built before I make a decision but it's fun to plan ahead :)
