english cottage & water chestnut
Do any of you know what those are? They are the most delightful shades of tan. And they will be featured the new home of Baron & myself. Yep, that's right - we picked our colors today. And our cabinets, and our hardware, and our carpet, and our brick...yadda yadda yadda. It was a lot of fun to visit Lowder New Homes' Design Center and mull over a million shades of tan and even more laminate countertop samples. You may think it sounds difficult to choose from such an array of options, but it actually wasn't as hard as I thought it would be. That is, until we got to the hardware. Good grief. There were fewer choices of hardware than there were paint colors, carpet samples, and countertop samples, but for some reason that was the one area that took us the longest. Perhaps it was because most of the hardware I liked most was an upgrade. And we all know that upgrades are the devil. Except for the brush nickel doorknobs. I mean, I can't believe brass doorknobs are still standard. Come on, Mr. Lowder. It's 2006. Anyway...so hopefully after next week, our home will be on its way to being constructed. We are so excited!!!
