on tile backsplashes, chrome lamps, and chewed fingernails…

When we picked out the finishes for our new house back in January, I fussed and fretted over the details. Did we pick the right paint colors? Will the dark floors and the dark cabinetry look okay together? Will we regret not getting granite in the master bathroom? What would it really look like, considering we never saw the floor plan built in a model home and our only perspective was this…

But that was nothing compared to the last few weeks when they have actually been finding their way into the house. For some reason, I have been royally stressed out, even though Ben kept assuring me over and over that it was all going to be okay.

But…WHAT IF IT WASN’T? I felt like a paranoid, insecure freak.

Plus, we started shopping for furniture and accessories, which is something I never do and is way out of my comfort zone. One…because who wants to go furniture shopping with kids, and two…I haven’t had the space or faith in my children to own any accessories that weren’t made out of kid-safe plastic. (That still may be a legitimate concern)

My fears were unfounded, of course, and every time we walked into the house, I breathed another sigh of relief when I saw how well everything was working together. It’s definitely a little more modern than our previous house, and I’m digging the vibe, from our light blue dining room…

to the kitchen…

especially our kickin’ backsplash…(just missing grout)

even the kitchen faucet makes me happy…

 and so does the beginnings of our shower…

furniture shopping got a little easier once we found the kid’s room (Thanks UBU!)

….along with some great deals!

Found this funky table and brown leather chair combo for our kitchen (minus the river rock runner)…

and Ben tracked down these chrome lamps…

along with a few more surprises to go with our blue leather couch!

It’s all coming together, despite my chewed fingernails, and as I rolled up this afternoon…it felt like I was coming home.

Only a little more than a month to go!
