Wonderful!!! Love the soft gray color. We did a house in similar with a soft white and it was so pretty.

Can hardly wait to see more pictures.

I picked out colors this morning.....now I am second guessing about the kitchen....so imagine with me 'cause I do not have pics to show :-(

It is an open concept...so I chose a sageish olive color for living room, dining room and kitchen area. Cabinets will be birch painted pearl...granite will be Santa Cecilia (cream, brown, black) and I am thinking about either a cream with an insert of long skinny multi colored accent or taupe brown inch square glass tile, with stained hickory floors,SS appliances....there's will be very little wall space in the kitchen, but I am thinking that perhaps that should be painted a shade of brown instead the green...paint order is being done tomorrow. What do you think?

Phoggie Wow You've got a house!!!
I vote for cream with multi color accent and greenish wall color.
I have a brown (think frosty from Wendy's) bedroom wall color. Loved it at first. But Brown is tuff depending on the lighting in the room and other items it can zap the energy. I'd wait til moved in to pick a brown paint.
Love what we can see of your house.

"I am thinking about either a cream with an insert of long skinny multi colored accent"

do you mean like a pencil insert across the wall of the BS?

sort of like petra has? (her BS has bright color inserts tho)

Yes, desertsteph.....I was thinking about cutting the 12x12 sheet into 4 lines of glass pencil tiles...and inserting them in the cream tiles about 4-6 inches up from the granite counter. Or I might just use the cream with some color of soft taupe grout......but it is the wall color that I am debating about. There is very little wall space that would show...so do I match the wall color with the grout color, or paint it green like is in the connecting dining room? I was looking at Lowes....and if you want look it up, the background tile is a biscuit color sheet with smaller subway tiles....and the glass tiles are a variation of cream and browns.

They are finishing the sheet rock this week...and will start to paint next week....WOOHOO!! No more wall than there is in the kitchen, I might let them paint it green and get one of my kids to repaint it brown if I don't like the green.....decisions, decisions, decisions!!!

I think going with the green is a good idea - at least for now. or a shade of the same green (on the same paint strip).

can you post the website address for the accent tile? I'm at a loss on the lowe's site in looking at tile.

They finished painting all of the inside today and sprayed the doors and woodwork..will probably start hanging doors tomorrow..as well as lay some more floor tile in utility and bathrooms. They also have most of the light fixtures hung. Cabinets are done and will be delivered soon...granite is out at the fabricator shop. I am so excited to watch all of my planning come together......so far, so good!

Wow Phoggie - it seems like things are moving along smoothly and so quickly! I am sure to you it probably doesn't seem so fast but can you believe a month or so and you will be in? Congrats on all of the progress. Hope to see more pics when your daughter comes to visit next, hint hint.

Not as much progress this week as I would have liked but one of the crew member's wife had an emergency surgery so he missed several days to be with their two very young children and help her....then the flu bug started biting!...so it was a slower week....but I have no control of health, so will be happy with all the progress I get. I spent the weekend in Kansas City with one of my daughters and we shopped for house accessories....so fun! I will keep you posted and hope my DH will be down to post pictures again soon.
