I told him I loved this look and for sure wanted a dutch door in my mudroom coming in off of the front porch, but I also wanted lots of space for lockers/cubbies for the kids. We initially had the dutch door in the plans, but then a few weeks later we took it out so that I would have more storage space. Until three days ago when I put it back in. :) I couldn’t stop thinking about it! One of those things I really wanted and I finally decided it was more important to me than extra storage. I still have plenty of room to do what I want to do for the kids in the mudroom so it worked out great. And I’m so excited about this door! I haven’t decided what color it will be – white, black, grey, or maybe something really bright and fun? Kenny is excited too. Last week he said “are you still talking about that dutch door!? Enough already! Put it back in!” So I guess he’s less excited about the door and more excited that I won’t be discussing it anymore, but regardless, we both got what we wanted in the end. :)
Isn’t this home beautiful!? This is exactly how our garages will stick out from the house only ours are on the right side of the house where the garages in this picture are on the left (looking head on). Just like this picture, we will pull into our garages on the inside. This made the most sense with the shape of our lot. Another thing I love about this house is all of the white molding. I LOVE white molding and the way it pops against any rock or siding. I also love the triangle peaks in the roof line (over the front door and over the front garage). Our house has a lot of peaks/gables in the roof line. In fact sometimes I worry that I went a little too crazy with the gables! I don’t think I went too crazy with the white molding though. In my opinion, one can never have too much white molding. :)
SO pretty! My mom saw these pictures on-line a few months ago and called me and said “I found a picture of what you’ve been talking about for your ceilings!” Sure enough, there they were. It was love at first sight.
I have gone back and forth so many times on whether or not I should do a stainless steel fridge or cover it so that it blends in with the kitchen cabinets. After much debate, I’m leaning towards having it blend in with the cabinets like the picture above. I love the look of stainless, but this will be much more practical so that I’m not cleaning fingerprints every other day like I do now. But don’t hold me to it, since I have been known to change my mind as often as Addison changes her clothes. Which as you all know is pretty often.
So that is just a peek of some of the things that we are including in the new house! There are still so many decisions to make, but like I said, I’m feeling good about the choices we’ve made so far. Maybe I don’t suffer from decision making disorder after all!
