And, things are moving along with the new house..........our appliances were delivered this past week. Not all of them have been installed but they are there and ready to be. We chose to go with all GE Profile series.
All the towels racks were installed and they sort of stick out like a "sore thumb" without towels on them. But, that will be remedied shortly after we get moved. I'm very pleased with the design and the oil rubbed bronze finish on them.
And, my friends, this is a handrail! They are in all bathtubs and showers. Yep, Hubby and I have tried to think of everything we possibly can that we "might" need as we age. ~did I really just say that~ But, it is what it is, and if we live long enough there are many accommodations that we may need in the process. But, I think this is the best looking hand rail and I'm betting that you would not have known it was a hand rail if I had not told you. And, yes, we had all higher toilets put in and wider doorways and hallways. We will be prepared and will hope that we never need to put any of it to use. ~wink~
All the knobs and pulls were also installed last week and I'm equally pleased with them. Each are just a little different in each room but not a big difference. My favorite pulls are the ones in the left hand picture. Not sure I could have ever made the choices if it had not been for my wonderful designer.
The finishing touches were added to the kitchen. The embellishments were added to the small island and to the panel above the cook top. I love both of these. The corbels were put on the big island and still need to be stained and finished but I think they are just beautiful!
Things are coming together slowly but surely and we'll be calling this "home" in the coming weeks.
