So remember Wexford II?? That house I used to post updates about before I got all crazy involved with our own home? Well, here are the images that the talented Tammy from Lifeseven took this past week of the somewhat finished house...
This kitchen is the first all wood kitchen we have done in years, so I wanted to do something fun with it. The grey stain that I thought would be 'fun' turned out to be my own worst enemy. After numerous stain samples we finally nailed it down but finding the right granite & backsplash was an additional challenge that I wasn't expecting. In the end I decided on Bianco Argento in a leathered finish for the counters and a glass bullet tile installed vertically for the backsplash, it sparkles so I adore it.
For the master bathroom I wanted calm, clean, crisp, white. It is such a soothing space with the light that floods in through the bow (can you tell I love this window design yet?). We used Daltile Fabrique for the floors & shower walls, white carrara vanity tops, and Kohler Purist faucets in polished chrome.
Now how fun is this Jack & Jill bathroom, I am so in love with this vanity top! Keeping the entire space white I let the counter speak for itself.
Adding a stacked stone to the fireplace with an offset block style mantle adds a natural element that helps bring warmth into the space and it is a great compliment to the 6" wide Hickory flooring. The curved staircase has a closed stringer with open carpet risers, this helps the flow of the plan keeping every bit of it 'open'.
The office, a place to make the deal happen, maybe some school work, or even set up as a relaxing library for relaxing nights with comfy chairs, a bottle of wine, and a great book. This room has tons of possibilities!

I always seem to be going 1000 miles a minute when I see Tammy. When she shot Wexford I we were moving and I had no time to do any staging, this time she was shooting the day before we left. I was in a mad panic grabbing items out of my cabinets, off the counters, out of boxes and loading up my car. It is amazing how just a few items in some rooms can make all the difference. Her next shoot for us is our home (when I get back & finish that is)...so excited for that one!! Mel xo
