We Bought a House {part 2}

After the initial decision of the layout and location, we actually got to pick out EVERYTHING that goes inside the house. This experience was sooo crazy and we feel so lucky to be able to do it!

Here is the carpet that we picked for the entire upstairs. It is brown but has grayish tints to it. That is a theme of our house!!

This picture covers so much!! Eeek! So at the very top left we have the tile for the master bathroom. This goes around the shower and bath tub in there. Next is the marble counter tops for the bathrooms which is pretty plain white :) just how I like it. The third one on the top right is the laminate for the bathrooms upstairs. It was really expensive to do tile floors for all of the bathrooms so we thought that was something we could add down the road if we want to. The little mosaic is also going to be around the vanity and bath tub in the bathrooms. Again, gray gray gray. In this pic the cabinets look black, but really they are espresso just like in the pic below. The white subway tiles are for the backsplash in the kitchen, which is also in the pic below. The gray piece next to the subway tiles is the wall color for the whole house. We had to choose one color, we can do our own painting later on if we want.

This island shows the counter tops that we chose for our island. Actually Justin picked this out. I was not about it. I wanted all white everything for the counters, but we decided to go with his idea on this one and really now I think it will look awesome. The rest of the counters will be white with little gray speckles in it...shown below. 

These are the colors for the exterior of the house. Basically light brownish grays. The little maroon color at the bottom is the color we chose for our front door :) 

This is the design we chose for our mantel. Instead of having a mirror there we will have a TV there for downstairs. I love how it is popped out from the regular wall though!
Finally, one of my favorite parts is our floors downstairs. I just love the color of them so much! I can't wait to see them installed!

We had a blast picking all of this out, now we just can't wait to see it all in person! The countdown is on. 

Linking up with Jessica for Tuesday Talk!

  2. GORGEOUS! I can't wait to see the end product!

  3. Eeek, so exciting! I'm loving that there are so many house buying posts in my feed right now. Apparently it's a popular time to buy!

  4. How very exciting. I love the way both of you are giving and taking on what you want in the house. Neutrals are a great choice because they give you so many ways to change up the colors in the future. The finished home should look absolutely amazing. I can hardly wait to see the results.
