A Little Preview.

It will definitely be a while before each room is in shape to share in a wide view because we are still unpacking and getting things set up.  But I didn't want to keep you hanging that long.  In the meantime, check out some little sneak peeks around the house.  In case you need a reminder on what we started with, check out this video for a home tour before the renovation.   

Is it wrong that I've been sticking my head in the powder room everyday just to admire the pretty bird wallpaper?  I didn't think so.  I'm also a fan of the new faucet as well.     


In this picture, you can see the refinished hardwoods and the new laundry room tile.  


Check out the new paint color and orb chandy in the entry way.  I love the shadows it casts on the wall.  (I had to close my eyes when our contractor was teetering on a super tall ladder to hang that thing.)
 
 

We restained the banister to match the new darker hardwoods and replaced the medallion carpet with something a little more normal/neutral.  I love the gray, dark brown, and white together.  


The butler's pantry (sans cabinet hardware).  I am in love with the counters and the mirror backsplash. 


One of the master bath sinks.   


And my closet.  Oh yes, I did put leopard carpet in there. 


We're working hard to get things in order over here so I can do some "real" before and afters.  Hope these little bits can hold you over.
