11.07.11 House Updates

A lot of exciting things have been happening around here lately.  First off we've been working our bums off all weekend to get the kitchen backsplash done.  So far have most of the tile up and just a few pieces left to go.  Planning on maybe even starting the grouting today, and hopefully have the range hood up by Friday!!!

In other news, our family room is finally starting to come together ... well at least in my mind.  We haven't actually purchased any new furniture yet, but we did put in an order on saturday for this leather studded bad boy

We had to take a drive down all the way to the Room Service Store in SF, but it was well worth the drive considering we'll probably have our custom sofa sometime at the end of this month.  I am in l-o-v-e with all of their furniture, which btw can be custom made to fit any room!  Can't wait to get my sofa and finally order some fun winter pillows that I've been eyeing for quite some time now.  The great thing about this sofa is that it's very deep and comfortable so the more pillows the better!

Here's a few rooms that I've been inspired by lately!

Love how white and airy this room is except for the bright pillows and lamps!

And here's a few more pictures from Nuevo Estillo.  Love the soft grey colors with black and gold accents!

 And a little more ... been trying to figure out the furniture placement for the family room so will be needing all the inspiration I can get!

Visits from the Mailmain

The mailman had a special delivery for us last week, and not just 1 but 2 very special deliveries.  We started off the week with a fabulous Crema Marfil Trellis gracing our kitchen backsplash.  As soon as the FedEx guy left, I rushed to rip the boxes apart and throw together a sneak peak of what the tiles will potentially look like once installed.

I know I went back and forth with the backsplash decision for more months than I want to count ... but once it was ordered, I never looked back.  I'm glad that I went with a big statement that hopefully I can love for many more years to come!

And to finish off this productive week, FedEx decided to stop by again ... this time with a gorgeous black Bertazzoni range hood!

This wasn't my original choice & I was totally freaked out at the thought of ordering a breakin-my-bank range hood just from a single picture I've seen online... But no regrets here whatsoever!

The backsplash is going up tonight so hopefully more pics to come!
