Our Home - A Brief Update

While we are far, far away from being ready for our close-up, Mr. DeMille, I simply cannot wait any longer to show you a very brief sneak peek of our home.

Our Carleton V Brazilliance wallpaper went up yesterday, and I could not be more delighted!!! I cannot stop starring at it! I have wanted this wallpaper for soooo long, and after permitting delays followed by renovation delays followed by delay after delay after delay, I was starting to think this day would never come! But here it is, in all of its banana leaf splendor.

 Our Labradoodle, Marilyn Monroe, likes the Brazilliance too!
 
Our furniture from Dallas is finally arriving on Thursday, and therefore it won't be much longer before our dining room looks like this...


I would like to give a huge shout out to our fabulous wallpaper installer, Robert Gagner. Bob is truly an artist, and he has been in business for over 30 years. Anyone who lives in South Florida knows it is next to impossible to find excellent service around here, and Bob far exceeded my perfectionist expectations. Stay tuned as Bob will be installing my faux Gournay next week!!

Our fabricator is still ironing out a few kinks, but our kitchen is also coming along slowly but surely... I adore classic white kitchens, and I'm thrilled with the way ours is turning out!


Here's a glimpse inside our master bathroom... Again, it is still a work in progress but here is our steam shower. Hopefully we will get to use it soon!


And that's it for now! A very brief update indeed... Pretty much everything is still a giant work in progress, including our family room. We are stilllll awaiting our custom entertainment center, and until then, here is a sad glimpse of the get-up we've got going on in there. The TV is actually sitting on the floor. It's kinda like living in a frat house. Go Noles!

  2. I have been waiting and waiting for this wall paper moment.....I just scrolled and stared at it. True perfection Andrea. Better than I could have imagined. I can't wait to see how you fill it up. The bathroom instillation of your slabs is top notch too. What joy to finally move in....
    Congratulations!

  8. Wonderful, I cannot wait to see this!
    I always worry that something will happen to my Martinique paper, it cost me a fortune in import taxes, and a huge fee from an American designer just to find it for me, it makes me sick to think of what I finally paid for it, if anything does i will be begging you to source that one above for me!

    Faux Gournay - oh I'v e been looking for similar for ages, can't wait!

  18. Utterly fabulous! I've just found your blog and foresee many hours lost... Having just fallen in love with the deG willow paper, I am on tenterhooks to hear how your faux panels turn out - did you indeed source them from InGrandDesigns, the ebay link you mentioned?
