Happy gloomy afternoon! It has been raining on and off all day today. My mom and I left at 7 this morning and drove to the design center to pick out all of our colors and things. It was fun but also really overwhelming. I never knew there were 9 different shades of “black.” Seriously? I am glad I wasn’t by myself or I may never have decided! here are a few pictures of some things I decided on.

Below is the shingle color, the middle black color is the shutters, the top rectangle is the color of the house on hardy plank, and the bottom one is the trim. The front door will also be the same color black as the shutters.



This picture just shows the black better and the brick that will go along the bottom of the house and be on the front steps.



This is the white cabinet, black granite kitchen countertops, and the wood floor that will be in the foyer, living room, kitchen, dining room, and master bedroom.



This is the marble top type thing for the tops of the bathroom counters/sinks, the carpet for the secondary bedrooms and bonus room, and the tile for the laundry room, bathrooms, and walls of the showers.



The whole house will be a wheat color and the master bedroom and bathroom will be a grey with a SLIGHT blue in it. We will have bronze knobs, fixtures, doorknobs, etc. and gas lanterns on the front of the house, white columns on the front and blue ceilings on the porches. So excited!

I am supposed to run this afternoon about 4 miles, but it is looking REALLY dark out again, so I may be on the treadmill until tomorrow. We will see! I am going to go ice my leg, it is feeling a little tight today. Hope it will be ok for the race!

Monday workday is almost over, you are almost there! Have a great evening!


QOTD: Have you ever designed a house? I loved that we came up with our floor plan from scratch!
