A Few New House Goodies

Sorry for the late post today. I've been feeling crumby. I did have a good weekend though. It just tired me out and I think I was already on the edge of coming down with something. Just need some extra rest and I'm sure I'll be back to normal.

I had a good time at Home Styles this past weekend. It was a treat to hear Samantha Pynn speak and I had a chance to meet her afterwards. She was really sweet and gave some helpful advice in response to the questions that were asked. (I took some notes so I'll tell you more about it another time. I will say that the subject of the "oak package" came up more than once though.) We also got some inspiration for our new build at the show. Speaking of which, I did some running around on Saturday and had a look at some flooring, lighting and hardware. My iphone is loaded up with pictures of things that caught my eye, and I came home with a few goodies in hand.

The colour samples are for me to choose a kitchen cabinet colour and you'll see a sketch of our kitchen layout beneath. I ended up buying a few hardware options for us to consider too. I'm having such a time choosing the hardware. Perhaps I'll have to put it to a vote in the end (if you don't mind helping me with that)!

So, it's coming together. They are actually going to start framing tomorrow (Tuesday), so I'll have a picture for you next week that actually looks a bit like a house.

For now, I'm going to curl up on the couch and have a little nap.



  1. I love the rectangle square hardware. What colour are you doing the cabinetry?

  2. I'd love to hear what Samantha Pynn had to say about the 'oak package'!!! Hope you feel better soon!

  3. What an exciting time for you, Sarah! And wow, you have really narrowed down some incredible options for hardware. I'm a lover of glass knobs, so that one is my hands-down favorite, but I also really like the square brass knob. Looking forward to seeing what you choose :-)


I love hearing from you. Thanks for taking the time to comment!
