Hi friend! I’m so excited to welcome you into our new home! The ‘pinch me’ factor is still very much alive and I’m so grateful to call this place home. ♥
Today, I’m taking you room by room via my camera roll. I snapped these pics right before we moved in. Don’t you just love when everything is still all fresh and new?!
NEW HOME TOUR
Let’s start with paint colors because that’s always a frequently asked question, so I want to put that right at the top of this post.
Wall color is SW Alabaster (flat)
Trim color is SW Pure White (satin)
Cabinets are Magnetic Grey (eggshell)
I’m concerned about the white flat paint in the bathrooms and kids rooms, but we’ll see how it goes. I researched the heck out of paint finishes and I know magic eraser can help clean flat walls and they’re easier to touch up.
I was already able to clean some scuffs from the move, so hopefully it’s okay. I’d love to hear your experience with flat paint if you have it in your home.
It’s the heart of the home and one of the first things I fell in love with when I walked inside. This kitchen isn’t what I would have even thought to design, but I’m smitten with every detail!
I’ll forever be a fan of all white kitchens, but I love the combination of muted blue/green grey cabinets with the light wood, white quartz counters and the contrasting black counters in this kitchen.
All of the design elements go together perfectly, along with the light fixtures and wood floors.
This is a true chef’s kitchen with Wolf Sub-Zero appliances, fancier than anything I’d need since I’m no chef! Having a pot filler at the stove will be very handy though! The refrigerator and dishwasher have cabinet fronts that gives the kitchen a streamlined look.
I do enjoy the soft-close drawers and under cabinet lighting. And that back part takes the place of the wet bar I had in my old house. There’s a wine fridge, ice maker, sink and additional storage there.
Plus, I’m so excited to decorate that open shelving!
There’s a large walk-in pantry with a wooden shelf, pull out drawers and a ladder since I’d never be able to reach those tall shelves! I think they’re 11 feet tall??
I’m so excited for all the natural light this home has and I love how the windows are framed. All of the light fixtures are from M&M Lighting.
The living room is smaller than our old house, but I think it will be cozy! There’s a wall mount for the TV and it lowers so you can watch your shows at eye level.
I like that there’s still storage in the cabinets and I’ve never had a fireplace before. That will be awesome in the winter!
The sliding barn door is on gold hardware and leads to a mudroom with tall cabinets and lots of additional storage.
The half bath downstairs is finished with the grasscloth wallpaper I’ve always admired, gorgeous lighting, a wall mounted sink with gold legs and eye catching tile.
I’m crazy for all the light fixtures they chose, I couldn’t have picked better!
I’m sure this space was meant as a game room, but it’s now my office! It’s nice and big and the natural light is amazing! Plus, those vaulted ceilings!
This will be a bigger laundry room than I’ll ever need, but I’ll take it! There’s tons of extra storage in here too. I ended up swapping out the washer and dryer you see here for the ones at my old house since they are brand new and on pedestals.
There’s a tall linen closet with adjustable shelves in the hallway. I’ve paired way down on our extra blankets and throw pillows, so this is plenty of space for us.
All of the details in the house from the doors to the door hardware, I’m smitten with.
I’ve also already come to enjoy the Nest thermostat. It’s pretty and works really well!
BEDROOMS & BATHROOMS
The house has five bedrooms, one on the first floor and four upstairs.

This bedroom has it’s own bathroom and I’m crazy for the tile they chose and the finishes. It’s hard to tell from the photos, but the tile and mirror frame are navy blue, not black.
The other two upstairs bathrooms share this Jack & Jill bath. How cool is that tile floor and double sink?!
This room is actually larger than my old bedroom, minus the sitting room. It also feels larger because of the raised ceilings. Those planks are mimicked in the dining room and stairwell to tie it all together.
The bathroom finishes are gorgeous too, everything from the dual head shower to the double vanities. There’s also an extra vanity for me to do my makeup at.
This closet is about the same size as my old closet, but doesn’t have a center island. It does have taller clothing racks and shelves, plus the pull down shelves (but I can’t even reach those handles). When Rhonda walked in, she said she didn’t think there was gonna be any room left for Brian! ha!
Y’all, I honestly still cannot believe we live here and this is our house. I don’t mean to be dramatic, it’s just more than I ever dreamed of and I’m so grateful. I still remember living in tiny apartments as a kid and sharing a room with my brother. Good memories were born out of those hard times and I look back on them with fondness. My parents worked so hard to give us the best of what they could.
I love that my own kids and mom will get to enjoy this house for years to come. It’s not just the beautiful parts, but the love we’ll pour into it that makes it special.
James and Jordan are thrilled with their rooms and I’m starting to get comfortable with where everything is and how everything works.
You know how things are different from home to home like the way the microwave works, the thermostat, the shower, and which light switch operates which lights. I’m still surprised every time I walk into my closet and the light turns on automatically! That’s a fun feature!
I’m so thankful for your genuine happiness for our family and that’s why I wanted to get this new home tour up as soon as possible to share with you. I shared a video tour on Instagram, but I know some of you don’t have that.
I’m still trying to find out more details like what kind/color of wood floors these are and any other details y’all are interested in. Let me know in comments and I can research! I’m really excited to take you along as I decorate each room!
Have a fantastic day friend!
