I've been promising this for months and months (trust me--no one has been more frustrated over the issue than I) but last weekend we finally had things finished enough to take you on a tour and as an added bonus you get the benefit of our Festive Christmas Decorations (which are coming down today by the way).
There are still two closet doors to put up and paint, a piece of trim, some steel cables and two pieces of floor glass to install but other than that it's all done.
It's funny, I've never ever thought of our home as our Dream House--it's just not glamorous enough for that and would have to include a jacuzzi tub--but we've been here for seven years and now that we've fixed it up here and there it really does feel like ours to the point that I'm becoming quite attached to it. It finally feels like our thumbprint is on the whole thing and that the house really and truly represents our family.
I love seeing the kids enjoying their new space, they've really taken to it. Spencer's working on a big project at his desk every day now and Grace has got a spot for her easel. Now if I can just get them to keep it clean . . .
It was funny--we had the electrical inspection last week and the inspector took one look at the rooms and said, "Did Black + White design this?"
When we said yes he said, "They always do interesting designs."
So you can design for yourself what you think--but as for us? We're in love.
