1. House color and trim color
2. Carpet color
3. Hardwood floor color
4. Cabinet colors
5. Tile colors
Donnas the decorator and shes been through more blogs than I can count looking for just the right color combinations. We've also driven by more houses than I can count looking at the siding, trim and shutter color combinations. Right now, and things could change any minute ;) , we're leaning towards the following:
1 Gray or tan house with black shutters.
2. Not sure for carpet...but probably a medium tan/brown
3. A Darker hardwood color saddle
4. The Wyoming Cherry Bordeaux cabinets
5. Not sure for tiling...but probably a lighter tan or beige with a darker listello (sp?) which is that trim that goes around near the top
Donnas main dilemma is the over all color combinations.... She wants to makes sure the flooring, tile, cabinetry and future granite, paint and furniture all wrap nicely together. We're thinking we like the kitchen cabinets and floor a little darker overall, we'll paint the walls using lighter tans and yellows and the wood in the furniture will be a darker wood with cloth that matches the walls. The thing is once we make our color choices at the selection center that its... and we're not allowed to make any changes...so this is a one shot deal we got get it right the first time....
Below is an kitchen or two we like. These are from blogs we like or models we've seen. We're heading out today to check out another model... we do like to see things in real life before going with it... hopefully we get it right...
Here's one with the lighter floor and cabinets....
Here's some bathroom pics from a blog we follow that had some model pictures. we like the tile, hardware, cabinetry combinations...we may go with a slightly different tile and listello as well as a differant paint color... but the overall look we like.
Oh... why oh why does ryan have to put some sort of access panel on the front of the tub as you walk into the bathroom... we've seen this done a few times.... I wonder if they'll be doing it at our house... maybe we can grab the project managers and come up with a different location.
