Scenic Home Tour

The Fall Parade of Homes came and went and it was such a whirlwind of an experience. We met so many great people, and heard amazing feedback regarding the house. I felt like I was in awe a lot of the time.  I am so grateful for the experience.  This wasn’t our plan in the beginning, but I understand sometimes our plans don’t work out, and it will lead you to better paths.  I believe this is the case for this house.

Now that the home tour has ended I can give you a virtual home tour! In the next few posts I will share photos of this home we’ve been working so hard on.

Let’s start with the main living area! I love an open concept because I like to be social with my family. I think that’s the case for a lot of people. An open concept makes for an inviting atmosphere. It’s also a great place to entertain guests.

I chose to paint a cool toned paint on the walls, yet it feels warm! The paint color is Passive by Sherwin Williams, and the fireplace wall is Unusual Grey, also by Sherwin Williams.

We had so many positive comments on the paint color. I do not do builder beige or builder grey!! I spend a lot of time on paint colors, it drives my husband insane! But it pays off in the end. I got the perfect neutral shade of grey that tends to look blue or green or grey in the right shades of light. It was a win with all the Parade attendees.

The flooring was the next favorite! I use a high-grade Mannington laminate floor. It holds up so well to pets, kids, and traffic. It also has a 72 hour water lock, and you can’t beat the look of this floor!

I used a combination of furniture and accessories from my house, and found pieces online and in stores to stage the home.  This was my favorite part of everything.  It made the home come to life, and it actually made the rooms look bigger!  I love combining styles from different stores to use in a room.  That way your house will never look like a particular store when you walk in, and best of all it will feel like YOUR home.

Making a Statement

When deciding on a vanity style and color for this master bathroom I wanted to keep with the style of painted cabinets, but I also wanted it to be different from the kitchen.  My first instinct was to go with white.  White is pretty, it’s traditional in a master bathroom, and I love the crisp clean look it.  Then I was inspired by a black master bathroom vanity https://domino.com/modern-neutral-hollywood-home-tour.

I knew that I wanted to make a statement in this bathroom.  Our windows are black in this house, the exterior brick is black, and this bathroom would be a good match. I went with https://www.cliqstudios.com/ again. We loved working with these cabinets for the kitchen, so it was an easy decision use them for the bathroom as well.

I was so scared, nervous,  excited to unbox these cabinets!  The black was exactly what I imaged it to be! It gave the bathroom a nice modern look, and it made the statement I was looking for.  I dressed up the cabinets with chrome hardware and faucets, and topped it with quartz countertops. I couldn’t be happier with the outcome!

Using a ceramic marble tile in the shower I was able to compliment the quartz countertop, and the dark subway accent tile brings in the black.  I found the perfect marble mosaic hexagon tile to finish it all off.

Buyers aren’t walking into their typical master bathroom at this house.
