I love the hardwoods, granite and cabinets we chose. :)
We visited the design center for our builder yesterday. It took us 2.5 hours to choose everything and it was a lot of fun. The hardwood flooring will be throughout the majority of the first floor. It is hickory that is stained really dark Java. I love all the grooves and scraping in it. It makes me think of Pottery Barn. I adore it and so does Clayton. The cabinets look almost black but they are really a very dark brown called Espresso. The granite is Santa Cecilia and it will help contrast the dark floors and cabinets. I can't wait to see this combination together. It's going to be fabulous!!
This is going to be in the master bath. Clayton chose everything and I think he did a great job. It will definitely be masculine looking. The walls, shower and tub will all be tiled with the big brown ones. The decorative tiles will surround everything. The photo shows a soap dish but it will actually be a corner shelf instead. We never use bar soap so the shelf will be of more use to us.
