Home Building Project Interior Selections


It has been so much fun deciding on our interior selections! It is awesome being able to design a room from scratch, and put our personal touch on every square inch. Our decorating style is classified as “Transitional”. This is also referred to as “updated classic”, “classic with a contemporary twist”, or “old meets new”. Pottery Barn (which is my favorite store) serves as great inspiration for our decorating choices.

I am super excited about our selections for the kitchen and keeping room. We selected recessed panel (medium/dark brown) cabinetry with black pen glaze. The hardware is a long, sleek satin nickel handle for the doors and drawers. Although I love our cabinet and hardware selection, I am really excited to see our countertop and back splash installed.

We upgraded to a Tier II granite, Giallo Ornamental. It is a combination of white, tan, brown, and very small accents of black. The design is composed of mostly veins, which provides incredible movement.

The kitchen backsplash is composed of solid glass 1″x 1″ tiles. The tile is named “Foliage”, and it is a combination of tan, brown, and green. The tiles placed next to our granite looks absolutely amazing!

We really wanted our master bathroom to stand out and be special. With the huge picture window above the tub, we have great light coming into the area. So, it seemed like an obvious choice to add glass tiles into this area. 6 inches of glass subway tiles (1″ x 2″) will be extended up the walls around the bathtub, and a 4 inch accent band will run around the walls of the tiled shower. The name of the glass tile is “Beach”, which is a neutral tan color.

With the exception of the master bedroom, master bathroom and laundry room, the entire downstairs will be completely hardwood flooring. Because it is such a large area, it was a tough decision choosing what size and color to select. After a trip to Atlanta and Dalton (to view the flooring), we chose to go with a 3.75″ plank. This give a bold look (being wider than the standard 3″ plank), without it looking too wide. The color we selected is called “Saddle”. It is a mocha color with dark wood grain.

I am very excited to see our choices all together in one house! Our close date is still on track for August 21st.
