Fireplace and Accent Wall

Here is a glimpse of the fireplace which we also chose to be the accent wall.

You can just see the lighter grey to the left of the fireplace which will be on most of the walls. The fireplace will have white built in shelves and cabinets when all is said and done. As Austin said, that's where some of our objets d'art will go and I'm thinking some favorite books and cookbooks.

We will be going back to Kentucky soon to pick out the slate that will go on the fireplace. It also has outlets nearby for lighted pine garland around the holidays which I'm already excited about.

Also going in as I type are the cabinets. Our builder does only custom cabinets so we are getting white shaker cabinets with modern, brushed nickel pulls. Austin really wanted soft-close drawers so we got those too. Who knew there was so much involved in cabinets? I can't wait to see it all put together with the dark grey granite countertops, the painted walls, and the backsplash. With all that up, we'll be able to pick out exactly what color we want the floors stained. All these grown-up decisions but it's been great to pick everything out and customize; we're really fortunate.

Love the color. It will be a lovely cocoon.
