Hope you guys had a wonderful weekend. Ours was spent mostly researching and thinking about kitchen and bath renovation decisions. There are so many! My head is spinning with all of the options for the layout, appliances, sinks, faucets, hardware . . . and that's just the kitchen!
We also got some tile samples this weekend for the bathroom. We are debating between 1x2 or 3x6 carrara marble tiles, laid in a herringbone pattern for the floor. The 3x6 tiles in the picture are just ceramic tiles from Lowe's so we could get the idea of the scale of those compared to the 1x2. What do you guys think would look best for the floor? 1x2 or 3x6?
I have also been contemplating some new art work for the entry way. Specifically, I have been obsessed with a massive ostrich print from Z Gallerie. It's funny because it really doesn't seem like something I would be drawn to, but for whatever reason, I love it. I finally took the plunge and brought it home with me. We immediately hung it on a hook that was leftover from the previous owners and knew it was perfect for the space. It makes me smile whenever I see it.
I had Justin stand by it when I snapped the picture so you could get a feel for the size (and so he could work on his Vanna White pose). Justin has named the ostrich Walter. So everyone, meet Walter!
As you could imagine, a lot of our time has been filled with renovation decisions, meeting with contractors, and all of the other fun things that go along with buying a house. I've been hesitant to post too much about it all because I don't want to bore all of you with the million and one decisions. And since the house has really been the only thing on my mind, I haven't had much else to post about! If you want to hear more about the specific decisions we are making along the way, let me know and I can share them. Or if you prefer just to be kept in the loop on the big things and see it once it's all done, that's cool too. Just let me know . . . I aim to please!
I plan to go over to the house next weekend and take good pictures of the house before the renovation starts so y'all can get a full house tour in its before state. I may even go all out and do a video tour! Crazy!
