Tile....

Well, the tile guys are still hard at work. They have most of the bathroom floors down and are waiting on the rest of our granite countertops before finishing our kitchen backsplash. *IF* the granite gets here, they should finish up on Wednesday. That means at the end of next week, plumbing (toilets, fixtures, my clawfoot) should all go in. Today, they were supposed to turn on the AC to acclimate the wood floors. The AC has to run 3 weeks before they can stain the floors. The floors will be the very last thing they do, which puts the house being completed at the end of September as planned. I am crossing my fingers that all these *ifs* will go accordingly.

I LOVE the tile for the bathroom floors. In fact, I saw them being laid on a HGTV show a year or so ago and bookmarked it in my brain. I was lucky enough to find the exact tile... a total 'meant to be' moment :)

Anyways, here it is...



This is what it will look like with the white grout...



I didn't really have to compromise with the house at all. In fact, Micah pretty much gave me free reign to do whatever I wanted. Anytime the builder called to ask him something, he would reply "Call Lauri.... I just want her to be happy". This was my baby from start to end and I think it's safe to say I am pretty lucky :)

BUT, there was ONE THING that Micah requested... a ceiling fan in our bedroom. This was a bit tricky because I had my heart set on a chandelier over our bed. So... I got my creative juices flowing because honestly, I hate ceiling fans... I think they are so ugly and I didn't want to lay in bed staring at my 'should have been chandelier' ceiling fan forever!

Well ya'll, I found it!! It's called a fandelier and I just love it! It is unique enough to fit right in with my quirky details and makes us both happy... well, so far anyway... I'm a bit nervous that it won't actually put out enough air flow to make Micah happy, but at least for now, it is just PERFECT....

Love seeing all these home pictures! It's looking beautiful! But I wouldn't imagine any less from you! That fandelier is the answer to our dilemma too! Trevor refuses to not have a ceiling fan and I agree with you. That one is awesome! I'll have to remember that! Hope ya'll are doing great!

That fandelier is one of the smartest things I have ever seen!! We are remodeling our "new to us" house (it's 19 years old) and I am definitely bookmarking so many of your ideas. You are creating an amazing place!
