We found our designer through word of mouth, and I knew during the first meeting that we would end up using her. She's done everything from hotels to custom homes, and knows how to get the client the look that they want, while sticking to a budget. For a flat fee, she's helping us create a complete interior spec list for our builder, while also bringing new subcontractors to the table for bids (in my opinion, the more bids, the better!).
Since I'm tired, I'll just cut to the chase and show you some pictures. We've had several meetings with our designer and here's what we've come up with so far:
walls: Benjamin Moore Revere Pewter HC-172
countertops: Allen & Roth "Angel Ash" quartz
kitchen cabinets: white, painted
|flooring (throughout the first floor): Kentwood engineered & antiqued maple "Del Rio"|
|grout: TEC AccuColor, 988 Pearl|
|kitchen cabinets: arctic white, Shaker style recessed panel with slab drawers|
