The Counters are Going in!!!

I am in love with the countertops in our new house! They look amazing!!

Here is a picture of our kitchen island. (Still in progress. A bar will be added.)

Doesn't it look great with our apron sink?! I have always wanted a sink like this!  Obsessed!!

Our master bath (above) is beautiful with carerra marble. 

Last but not least, the guest bath and Emerson's bath have recycled glass countertops with shell bits in it. This picture does not come close to doing these counters justice. They are gorgeous in person!!  Again, obsessed!!  And how good do these countertops look with the paint color?!  Love!!  This paint color is in all of the bathrooms and laundry room.  Benjamin Moore Woodlawn Blue.

We can't wait to move in!!!  5 weeks and counting!!!

Cabinets and Countertops

There is so much happening at the house right now!  There are about 4 or 5 different crews working as I type.  The cabinets are being installed, and we selected the slabs for the countertops.  See pictures below.  (The counters for Emerson's bathroom and the guest bathroom are coming from remnants so no pictures of those).

I am SO excited about the granite we found for the kitchen!!  It is brand new!  We will be the first to have it, and it is gorgeous in person!  The movement in it is unbelievable!!  (Can you tell I am excited?!)  It is called Mont Bleu, and I am in love with it!

The detail is incredible!  The pictures do not do this granite justice!  It is so eye-catching...we crossed three aisles when I saw this on display!  There is onyx and mother of is truly stunning!  Look at this close-up:

 Here is the other slab we will be using.  (Same granite but one slab up in the quarry).  Look at that movement!  I can't wait to see it installed!

Below is the slab for the master bath.  It is Carrera Marble.  You can see our cabinet and floor colors below the slab.  (The tile will be rectangle rather than square).

Next is the cabinets being installed.  I snapped these photos when I popped by the house this afternoon.  I didn't stay long so I could get out of the way.  It is crazy over there right now.  So exciting!!

Below is a picture of the kitchen cabinets being installed.  There will be an island in the center.  I love the shaker style doors.  (They kind of look beadboard in this picture, but they are not).

This is a picture of the master bath cabinets.  They are also shaker style.

This is a picture of the guest bath cabinets.  They are beadboard.  (Emerson's bath cabinets look the same but flipped...with the cabinet on the left and drawers on the right).

We cannot wait to move in!!
