Hi there! I wanted to thank you all for your lovely comments and emails on our master bedroom and kitchen. I also wanted to answer some of the questions. This is a quick post. We are off to Disneyland tomorrow!
First off, I wanted to share some of my favorite cooking magazines and a great cook book .My husband and I are into fitness and now Clean Eating. We want to set a good example for the little ones. I wanted to share this amazing cookbook with great recipes by Tosca Reno’s Eat Clean.
We also have a subscription to Clean Eating magazine, love the recipes. I have been trying out recipes and will let you know which ones we like best.
Another favorite cooking magazine is Where Women Cook! There are amazing chefs, recipe idea’s and adorable kitchens. Fifi is in this latest issue. She looks so lovely in her kitchen.
The paint color I use throughout the common areas of the house is White Fever by Dunn Edwards (for now lol). The kitchen chandelier is a Rachel Ashwell find, I did not distress it myself. That is the way I bought it. The duvet cover on the bed is by Pom Pom. I found the herb box in the kitchen at a flea market. I did not distress that either. I found it that way. The backsplash on the back kitchen counters are white subway tiles. I went most of the way up the wall. On the island is Carrera Marble. We also did half a wall in one of our bathroom using subway tiles. I haven’t shown that bathroom yet. I will try to soon. I hope I got most of the questions. Thank you for asking.
I did get a lot of positive yes feed back on painting the floors white. Most everyone agrees. This is our dilemma though. This home is our 3-5 year plan. My husband and I have moved and flipped 11 homes in our 10 years together. But, when you have a family priorities change when looking for a home to raise them in. We have been going to open house’s the last few months to get an idea of the area in which we want to live and find our dream home to finally settle in.. I already have my dream home in mind, finding it in the perfect area is the trick. We have narrowed it down to 3 different locations. The school district being top priority.
Dilemma…We want to possibly keep this house and rent it out, or possibly sell it. Problem is do you think painting the floors white will be a distraction to renters or buyers???
Have a wonderful weekend!
