Join me for a mini-tour of my NC home. Yesterday I shared some of the photos of the outside of our new home, and today I thought I’d share a few of the inside. I’ll be adding my own touches to make the style ours but in the meantime check these out.
Let the mini-tour of my NC home begin!
Here’s the foyer or entryway to our home –
If you’re on the first landing and you look down, this would be your view. I love the amount of light that comes in. I do like the windows around the door right now but I’m not sure how I’ll feel about them in the long run.
This kitchen is a dream come true. Stainless steel appliances, granite countertops, white cabinets and drawers, and brushed nickel pulls. Everything I love.
Personally, if I were choosing the countertops, this would not have been the granite pattern or color I would have chosen but it is lovely – and not a deal-breaker. I finally have a kitchen I can cook in with plenty of storage space. That’s not a double oven, (though that would have been amazing) it’s a microwave on top and an oven on the bottom.
We’ve got a nice bar that will easily seat 3 or 4. I’m sure the Dayngrous Duo will love eating there. They love sitting at the tall tabletops when we go out. We also have an eat-in kitchen, or breakfast nook, if you prefer. Whatever you choose to call it, it fits a table for four easily. (See the formal dining room)
As you probably noticed, we have an open floor plan – which I love! See? There’s that traditional furniture look I’d mentioned before. Nice, but not my style. It’s going to be so much fun shopping for new home decor.
We have ridiculously high ceilings and they’re beautiful! They’re heart of pine and absolutely gorgeous. I’ll have to try to get a good shot of them to show you. Really spectacular.
This is the den. Through the open door, you can see the doorway to the guest bathroom and then the doorway to the laundry room and a broom closet. That sure is a bright green, isn’t it? What do you think? Keep it or pick a new color?
Then there is the laundry room. I’m not loving the color but I am so thankful for a laundry room so I’m not complaining. I can’t reach the cabinets though. LOL
We have a bonus room. If I’m honest, this is probably the only reason Bella signed on for the big move. She saw Justin Bieber and was 100 percent onboard. Boy was she disappointed when she found out he wasn’t included with the house. I should probably get her one of her own. What do you think?
The original homeowners had two daughters, so this was a girl’s room. Isn’t that chest of drawers a beauty? This room is now my son’s room. I’m already working on making it look more masculine. I’ve got some excellent ideas.
His bathroom is quite different than hers. It’s all in one and a bit smaller but still very nice. Once it’s redecorated, I’ll show you what it looks like so be sure to stay tuned.
Hope You Enjoyed the Mini-Tour
I hope you enjoyed the mini-tour of my NC home. Remember, all of these photos are the previous owner’s set up. I’ll be decorating in a more modern style versus their traditional. I’ll be keeping most of the colors in the house as is, except for the laundry room (salmon) and the den (bright green). Remarkably, the room colors I’ll keep are almost the exact colors I did in my Florida home. That’s probably one of the reasons I fell in love with this house.
Thanks for stopping in for my little home tour. I hope you liked it. Let me know if you have any decorating tips.
Big thanks to realtors:
