FUTURE HOME: DESIGN & DECOR  {capturing 📷 and documenting 💻 the real-time build 🔨 of our forever home 🏡} | midwest living. saint louis | rustic. elegant. organic |

I need to finalize a metal roof color for the front of the house. This will be going on the bay window, the box bay window, the front porch, and side porch. At the top of the picture is our @certainteedcorp roof color. On the bottom of the picture is our @lpsmartside siding color. And in the middle are three metal roof color choices: matte black, charcoal, or bronze. I *think* matte black is my number one choice with my other selections. But I would love to hear your thoughts!!! 👇👇

Some beautiful things happening on the exterior this past week! That stone work around the front door...I’m loving it! And the shiplap porch ceilings are going up too! I hope they make the front porch warm and inviting!!! Electrical is wrapped up. Siding is ordered. Insulation is being installed this next week. I have to finalize flooring and tile this week. Checking things off the list and it feels good 🙌

Love this amazing wood feature wall @jandjdesignteam designed for a client’s basement. Drawing some inspiration for our basement from this fun design!

IG!!! I need your help! Which do you prefer for my front and side porches?!? Keep in mind that my front porch features all tumbled stone walls, so these pavers will be right next to the stone. Both are from @rosettahardscapes and I really love both!
Left side: Grand Flagstone or
Right side: Dimensional Flagstone

@jandjdesignteam thoughts??

Basement #linearfireplace is being installed. Got this beast for a steal by purchasing a showroom model that they wanted to move 👊 . It’s three-sided, cool touch glass and the fire can change color 🌈. Can’t wait to try this guy out this winter when we are hanging out, watching movies on the basement big screen. Who is coming over to join?? 🤗

I signed off on most of our cabinetry yesterday! There are still a few rooms that have some small tweaks that need to be made before I can officially sign off....but sooo close. Our cabinetry has been such a labor of love for me! Here’s a sneak peek of my @benjaminmoore cabinetry colors 🙌😍🙌😍

I’ve been struggling to piece all the design elements of our house build together. I came across this picture today from @nicoledavisinteriors and I knew this was it. This design has everything I’ve been envisioning in one space: natural wood elements like shelving and shiplap, gray floors, gorgeous stone fireplace, chestnut leather furniture, and black accents. Can’t wait to use this design inspo for my own space 🖤🙌

I’ve been MIA for the past few weeks. My husband and I got to take a special getaway to Turks and Caicos 🌴(such a beautiful island!) and then we took a family trip to California ☀️ (the kids, my parents, and I tagged along for hubby’s continuing medical education -cme) and we are just getting home and settled!! 🤪
I got to go by the house today and found this surprise.... ❤️ the stone going up on the house!! I’m so excited! I absolutely love the stone and this makes the “house” start to look a bit more like a “home”
Swipe 👉 to see the stone up close and the stonemasons at work!!

I created my first design board so that I could determine proper height of these sconces in my foyer. I really enjoyed experimenting with the software and I may go back for more 😉. And check out this cute copycat (and way cheaper!) restoration hardware table from @wayfair

Designing this office nook/home command center was one of the more puzzling spaces. The space is a little tight and I had a small wish list of office must-haves including a calendar wall, storage, a file drawer, and a printer cabinet. @jandjdesignteam came up with a design for this little nook of mine that is 💯‼️‼️

Zeroing in one some pretty things this morning! I went to the floor store (again!) thinking I might change my hardwood flooring but I kept coming back to it and eventually eliminated all the other options! My original pick is the winner! Trust your gut, right?!?

Last week I went shopping for stone options for the fireplace. I narrowed it down to a couple of options that will be priced for comparison. When we were designing the house, my husband had very few must-haves but one of them was that he was adamant that he didn’t want the tv above a fireplace, so we came up with the corner fireplace concept. This layout gives me a place for a beautiful fireplace and my husband a place for optimal tv viewing 😉...a win-win compromise!! This will be floor to ceiling stone with a large wood beam mantel. Next to it on the left will be the built in tv niche and open shelves. Sooooo hoping we will be in the house by Christmas...I can’t wait to hang stockings from the mantel and take pictures of the kids sitting on the hearth in their jammies!!! ❤️
