Customization Meeting with the Design Center

We had our second meeting with the Design Center this week and it went great! They have Interior Designers on staff so they were able to give us some great recommendations without forcing their opinions on us. We had a pretty firm idea of what we wanted, but it was wonderful having an expert opinion to reassure us that everything would look good.

90% of our selections were pre-priced items so we have a pretty good estimate of what upgrades we will have to pay--but we will have to wait 2-3 weeks for our exact quotes from the team so we can make our final selections.

They are still aticipating that our close date will be December 15th, so we are keeping our fingers crossed that we will get to spend Christmas in the new house!

This is our brick, gutter/trim colors, and the blue is our front door color. 

This is what our bathroom counters will look like (except our countertop will be solid white).

This is the color of our cabinets (ebony), but the photo doesn't do it justice. 
I think we are going to upgrade to shaker cabinets but we aren't 100% sure yet. 

This is our tile that will be in the kitchen, dining, laundry room, mudroom, entry, and front bath next to our quartz countertop and cabinets. 

Our backsplash

Our master bath floor/shower tile & trim.
This tile matches the rest of our house, but is more of a brown base than a gray base (we were having the hardest time matching our shower trim and shower caddy to the gray tile, so we switched it up a bit). 

 And our carpet.

Now we just wait to hear back from them on the final pricing and schedule our appointment to go back in for final selections! 

Have I mentioned I'm not very patient...?


  1. Wow! I love all that y'all picked out! How fun and exciting!
