details, details, a few things I'm ( pretty ) sure of-

A little bit of the random I'm loving for new house details..

I love this fireplace tile, it might be fun as a kitchen backsplash..


Head over heels for this console.. head over heels. Honey, can I please have a $2167 tv stand?! :) :)

Hubs is designing the office, it's a great room off the kitchen with sliding glass doors to tuck it all away. If I'm allowed any influence ( ;) ) I'd love to do 2 of these Ikea desks like they did at Lonny-

The easiest decision for me was the kitchen. White, white and white ( well cream, cream, cream if we're going to be exact ha! ) Cabinets, quartz and tile..I need to narrow down floor color, I want something that feels a little washed out and pale.


Here's a little rendering of my fireplace idea and why I'm going to get Jenny ( MFAMB ) to paint up some awesomness for me. I won't have built ins but you get the idea.. fire, sconce's + art.
In the entry there is the typical oversized light fixture hanging from the second floor. I have an idea to nix that and do this style of sconce on the entry walls.. might be fun right?!

There's that tile again..


My Mom has an antique armoire, credenza, what ever you want to call it similar in style to this.. we're going to paint it up to achieve this look.. Love :)

So there's what's on my mind right now.. this week we will be narrowing down our exterior colors and I need to come up with my fireplace drawing.. hmm... more time on pinterest maybe ;)

Oh, and for any of you Calgarians wondering, we are building with Stepper Homes..I can't say enough good things about these folks :) :) We are building the Broadway model with a basement walkout.

Hope your weekend is wonderful, xx

holy gorgeousness! I love all that white and the console is amazing. It looks pretty easy to diy though :)

I just completed an all white (beige) kitchen and am loving the clean and crisp look. I did opt for the darker floors just to balance it all but the lighter floors seem to be pretty popular right now and probably MUCH easier to keep clean. Look forward to the finished product
