So I was just sitting here thinking of what to blog about when I realized that today is the 8th of March which means that in 3 months and 4 days, we'll get our house!!! And that the thought of that makes me so happy :) 

Just to tease myself, I decided to take a look at the design choices we have made so far and I still love them and can't wait to see how all of our choices come together. It will look fabulous. 

Have a look. Here is a picture of the tile that we have chosen for our foyer and powder room as well as the hardwood that we chose for the kitchen, living room, dining room and family room. This carpet is what we chose for our stairs, upstairs hallway and all the bedrooms. 

Here is a picture of the kitchen cabinets, countertops and the same hardwood/tile from the previous picture. I think that this picture does not due the colours justice but hopefully it gives you an idea of what we are doing. 

Actually, here is the inspiration for our kitchen. These are the same cabinets, countertops and handles that we have chosen. Although the backsplash is nice in this picture, we find it to be a bit too traditional for our contemporary taste and are leaning towards using  1"x 1" glass tiles... if we can agree on a style that we like. 

And finally, the bathrooms. For the master ensuite, we decided to keep the same cabinet/countertop/handles as in the kitchen so as to keep a common look and feel throughout the house. For the floor and tub tiles though, we went for a really neutral tile with a brown listello framing the roman tub. The listello is really cool and has flecks of gold, beige and chocolate brown - a perfect complement to the other elements in this room. 

Here are the options we have chosen for the second bathroom. On the top left, is the countertop; below that is the cabinet; below that on the right is the tub tiles (minus the optional motive tiles) and on the bottom on the left is the floor tile. 

Hmm... I'm more excited now than when I started this blog tonight. Tata :)
