Hi All - its "the wife" blogging...Watch Out!
Thought we would post some pictures of the color selections we made...
The photo of the brick, stone, shutter and siding has the wrong siding sample. Long story short, I had heard things that Autumn Beige may have a pink hue to it. After "googling" many pictures, I was freaked out about the siding and immediately had it changed to Stone Mountain Clay (even though it was the day after our pre-construction meeting!! TG we were able to change it. Many thanks to our very understanding Sales Rep!! )
I am a bit nervous about our tile choice in the bathroom. I'm afraid the tile is too light for such a dark cabinet. I'm not as nervous about it in the master, since we'll have the tile accents, but in the other bathrooms, we'll have the tile and the white cultured marble top with the black cab. I guess we never really looked into what the cost would be for granite in other bathrooms.... I hope it ends up looking ok. Originally we had selected the Maple Cognac cabinet, but after looking at flooring selections, we just didn't like any of the samples w/ the Cognac cab. So we chose the floor we liked, and chose the cab that looked the best (we thought) and that was Espresso. I love the contrast it has with the floor and that it will have with the New Venetian Gold granite. I'm afraid, however, that the dark Espresso will be somewhat of a fad, and become dated - but I'm going to love it anyway!

  1. Love your selections! We originally selected Autumn Beige, but after seeing it on a few homes in our community, we switched to Stone Mountain Clay. Autumn Beige just has a "fleshy" tint to it that looks great in the sun, but looks too pink when the weather is cloudy. Since I think we have more cloudy days than sunny, we opted to change the colors. Looking forward to watching your progress. We are looking at a mid-May delivery, so we're just a little behind you.
