Just a feeling...

Friday we leave for Dallas to spend a day picking out every last detail in our new home. AKA...the second best day of Ashli's life. Usually, you do this over several visits to the builder's showroom, but since there are 500 miles between us and the showroom itself, we are hoping to get everything knocked out in one day. We've been preparing over the past couple weeks. We even spent an evening walking around Home Depot and a tile store, discussing what we liked and didn't like, basically finding out if we were on the same page....
Spoiler alert: we actually were. 

New House Mood Board

Shaw 3/8 in. x 5 in. Hand Scraped Maple Edge Ash Engineered Hardwood...

I quickly came up with this mood board. Basically, just an idea of the feel I wanted. Classic lines and details; such as white molding, a chunky white mantel, and banisters. Light walls, dark cabinets and floors, and a lighter granite and back splash. We're thinking open shelving or a chalkboard wall in the butler's pantry (something we will probably do on our own later). The outside of the house will be brick and stone, and for the balcony, I'm thinking white (although the hubby likes natural wood). The houses in the neighborhood are all a cape cod style, so I want our home to reflect that on the interior. 
Light and airy, much like our current home.
This is where we are now, which could change within a few hours, honestly. 
I will be back next week, with all of our choices, and probably hundreds of bad Iphone pictures for your viewing pleasure. See ya then ;)

For more sneak peeks of what I'm dreaming about in our new home, follow my board on Pinterest!
