Finally Settling In

After 2 weeks of unpacking and organizing, I think we're finally settled! I have to say, this is the first house we've bought where we were able to move in ant not have to change a thing. The wall colors, the light fixtures, the carpet, the blinds - even the artwork and wall decorations would have fit us perfectly!

But, we felt a little odd asking for artwork, so we kept our requests to stuff we really wanted - like this furniture!
...and the pool table!
It's a really nice table - we've always wanted one!

The foyer and kitchen have these really nice Brazilian cherry hardwoods. The granite top on the wine rack was custom made to match the granite in the kitchen, so we got that as wel, along with the rug in the foyer.The master bath has an Italian marble floor and shower:
Did I mention the floors are heated? And yes, we've tried them out a few times already - what a neat feature!

Stay tuned! We leave later this week to fly back, pick up the pets and drive them back to their new home! Yay! It's been 4 1/2 months since we've had them - and Mom is ready for a break!

That furniture looks perfect for just lazing around on. Your home is stunning- I love the colors and the warmth.

But I think you need a bigger TV...it doesn't seem to fit very well...;-)

Hi Erika - it is all very comfortable - I have "tested" each piece thoroughly! Haha. You are right about the TV though - we need something bigger. The people we bought from had a huge 50-some inch thing there. We should have asked for that as well :p
