After touring over 30 homes with our realtor and many open houses on weekends and also through one which is an open door construction/realty company, we have finally found a beautiful place to call our own…
Our second offer on a home was accepted and we are happy with this sweet home! All week long we have been signing e-documents, picking up a check at the bank, scheduling the home inspection and contractors for things which will need fixing, etc.
And making plans and dreams…
And for some crazy reason this will be our third home with white carpeting! Crazy, I know…
How this happens I’ll never know but I know that we are both attracted to basically white interiors as it always looks so clean and fresh ~ a clean slate, a new beginning.
I am especially in love with the kitchen! The countertops are already a beautiful whiter granite with purple flecks in it ~ I will have to find out what this type of granite is called, sooo pretty!
There are several work triangles in here which we will have to get used to since the kitchen is laid out in a square and we are already looking at adding gas lines to have a gas cooktop, if possible and for a gas dryer hook-up. Part of this 7 day option period as part of buying a home here in Texas.
Our new master bathroom ~ lovely as is.
The master bathroom vanity does not have the granite the rest of the house has but is still very pretty as is.
We will be doing a small remodel in the near future as the shower needs repairs due to someone falling in it ~ and should be part of the sellers’ concessions and included on our inspection later today.
The guest bathroom ~ equally lovely!
Here is the second bathroom/guest bathroom and it is lovely as is! After all these years and going from whitewashed red oak cabinets in our first home, then to golden oak and painted white kitchen cabinets in our second home. I am liking these pretty cherry style cabinets here for our third home.
Our current bed ~ a California king ~ has no headboard… yet. 😉
Our queen sized bed frame was cherry and our daughter has it now since we moved up to a king, and oddly enough if she ever decided to move up this way, that bed would be a nice compliment here.
I think our current bed will fit nicely in our new master bedroom, as long as everything continues to move along in the home buying process.
Love love love these floral curtains in Laura’s kitchen!!!
I am already dreaming of curtains and bedding updates and getting inspiration from friends’ homes.
Dusty but still intact ~ our 1880’s reproduction Louis XV armoire and my
French handcarved buffet, which I use as my bedroom dresser.
I am already space planning where our furniture will go once we get it shipped from California and out of our two storage units there.
We will have to sell a lot or keep some in another storage facility for the next house ~ our retirement plan is to have a place where Hubby can get back to coaching pole vault to young athletes again. Complete with pole vault pit and runway.
Yes, we looked at places to have that now but found nothing over this way. It’s a 10 year plan for now.
