Inside the house pictures

My sis in law took some pics of the house for me. They are kinda dark because it was at night--but hey..whatever works in order for me to see it!
It looks really blah right now to me--but I guess that means it just needs a womans touch! Definitely some color. And I'll need to see that chandelier up close to know if I like it. And one day some wood floors and stainless steel appliances.
wait..is this a LAUNDRY room?? my.oh.my.

What in the world do I put above these cabinets? The ceilings are so high. They are going to look empty to me. Do I need something up there or should I just go with painting to add some depth?

Wait - are you buying this? Cool! Those *are* some high ceilings. And three cheers for laundry rooms!

lease to buy-- a portion of our rent goes towards it and then next year it will be ours. Since aaron's job is commission, we can't buy for 1 year. So it's the next best thing.

I LOVE the high ceilings! This is so great. :) I can't wait to see how you spice it up. It's a blank canvas just waiting for the artist's touch--go get it, Carrie. Wahooo!

That is a ton of space above the cabinets. You could do to the creepy 80's thing and fill it with ivy.... blah. I would say paint it a great color and then either display your favorite "look but don't touch" things (since they will be out of reach of the kiddos) or get some of your favorite photos blown up and put on canvas and display them there. That would be sweet.

Definitely room to put some stuff above those cabinets!! Ivy, leaves, huge candle sticks, etc. We have a pottery barn outlet near our house where you can buy all sorts of stuff that would look way cool on cabinets like that. We only have a little bit of room above ours so we just have a few plates, a sign, and some fake ivy. All I know is, yall get it ready and we'll come down, probably beginning of next year or something??? The house looks really cool!!

I am soooooo happy that you will have a laundry room!

It's huge and beautiful!!! I think it's cool to put really interesting pots above the cabinets. That's what I would do if my above-cabinet space wasn't used as a pantry storage. Not cute!

clarification: by pots, I mean decorative ethnic looking pottery, not your pots and pans!

So....since you have this house now, does that mean that you will be skipping your stay in Columbus?

Angie said...

Congrats! Very very nice! Yeah, does that mean you won't be in Columbus? :(
