There are houses going up at a crazy pace all around us in our neighborhood. They’ve just opened up a new section and I’ve been eyeing the new model homes when I drive past taking Izzy to school. We had our cabinet guy over finishing up our kitchen last week and he told me I absolutely must go check out one house in particular. He had put in the cabinetry in the model and said it was unlike any other model in the area. I headed over the next day and yes, as soon as you walked in it was totally different, so I thought I’d share! I didn’t come prepared with a regular camera, just my phone that was operating off of less than 10% battery (why is that always the case when you see something cool you want to photo?!!!), so the photos were quick and blurry, but you can still get the idea.
The house is built by Ashton Woods.
The stairway was gorgeous, but my favorite part of the entry were these twin chandeliers (another was directly over my head).
- Don’t forget the walls – Molding or tile was covering a lot of the walls in this house and made a huge visual impact.
- Think outside the cabinet box – We’ve all seen kitchens mix up the color of their cabinetry (separate colored island, separate colored uppers and lowers), but the deep charcoal doors on the white upper cases was different, awesome, and totally grabbed your attention. Kind of like eyeliner for your cabinets.
- Contrast – Charcoal interior doors with white surrounds, the black ceiling in the entry, master ceiling, bathroom vanities, kitchen cabinets, and even the backyard pavers. It all makes me so happy!
