Come On In!

Welcome to my home. It's not completely finished yet, but i thought i'd give you a sneak preview. I know it took a while for us to let you in, so we thank you for your patience.


Welcome!


Oh, if you don't mind closing the door so the doggies don't get out...thanks.


So what do you think of the colour? I think it goes well with my Lawren Harris print.


That door leads to the powder room and the stairs go up to the second floor and down to the finished basement


If you turn to your left a bit, you'll see the door to the garage. I'm glad i painted the doors a darker colour than the walls and the trim white...what do you think? It was really hard trying to get a colour to look good with those tiles. The previous owner painted the walls a peachy-brown (yuck) and painted one of the doors the same red / purple as the tile *shudder* she painted the garage door and trim all the same peachy-brown...it looked really really bad, but now i don't mind the tile at all with the gray :)


And then right in front of you is the closet. Go ahead, open it...



Surprise! Baby Bonnie likes to nap in little corners :)


Oh, and just before we leave the foyer, take a peek in the powder room and let me know what you think of the colour. It's a greeny-gray. Yes, i love the group of seven...



Ok, i'll run you upstairs to see the 2 spare rooms we painted. First, the guest room...
It's hard to see in this light, but it's a pale gray-blue...i think it'll look nice once i get all the white and tan furniture and accessories in here.


And here's the office. It's a steely-blue colour. That desk will be gone soon as well...


The colour looks more gray from this angle...


Alright, we haven't done anything with the other rooms so i won't show you those yet.
For now, let's go sit outside on the patio. Pull up a chair with me...we'll bbq!




Oscar loves his yard :)


He loves watching the people and dogs who walk by occasionaly.


So thanks for stopping by my house. It's been hard work these last 2 weeks. Come back again soon!
