Altadore I update & a deep breath...

Why is it no matter how organized I try to be I am always running around like a mad woman the week before a vacation? Yesterday I didn't sit down to have breakfast until, get this, 5 pm. The kicker, I was up at 5 am to get my workout was a long one. Since we are listing Altadore I & will be gone I needed to ensure that I had a good representation of what the home was going to look like since I can't be here in person to explain all of the details. I whipped up these boards in the matter of a few minutes, that is what a pot of coffee will do for you. Here is what any potential leads will be seeing...

 The cabinetry is currently being built in the home, but it is still a far cry from being completed.

 While the mud room is small it will still have a lot of style, thanks in part to the two-tone cabinetry, chevron floors, and of course, my beloved Hicks pendants.

 A few tidbits here and there that are going on in the home. A stunning Arteriors light will greet people at the front door and I am excited to see the levers POP when installed on the black shaker style doors.

 For the main bath upstairs I decided to go with a small hexagon mosaic on the floor, it will be paired with a 3x6 subway on the tub/shower walls. The dark grey grout & Raven colored countertops are going to allow the awesomeballs fixtures to stand out.

 For the flooring & shower walls I am using a 12 x 24 tile installed in a horizontal brick pattern, pebbled in the shower base, a furniture style vanity that will be stained and again, amazing fixtures.

 The flex room is one that a purchaser can use as a den or a dining room, so keeping that in mind I still wanted to use something amazing. I was inspired by the wall detail on the left (via Burnham Design), we are going with something similar as it will be tone on tone, but more dramatic with Iron Mountain. And check out that light from Arteriors, I can't wait to see that beauty in person!

 The powder room has 12' tall ceilings but it is a small space, I still want it to be inviting and intimate, the walls will be painted a few tones darker than what I am using in the rest of the home, and one 2 of the walls we will be using 4" wide alder slats from floor to ceiling, this detail will also encase the vanity, making it look like a floating cube off the wall.

While we are away the cabinetry will be wrapped up, painting will commence, the floors stained, and the counters is going to be like Christmas when we get back and I see this home. I am so excited, well, not excited for the vacation to be over that has yet to start but excited to see the progress of this home. What are your thoughts, you like?? Mel xo
