What a lovely day................

Well with much help and assistance from a patient lady at Uptiles Strathpine, the colour selection was carried out in 4 hours! We still have the carpet, timber flooring and fire place to be selected however I really feel we are on the way!

Ended up using a darker stone bench top in the Guest Ensuite & Main Bathroom - Caeserstone's Ginger was the winner with Classic White Gloss Vinyl Wrap Doors from Polytec.

We picked Caeserstone's New Buttermilk for both the Kitchen and our Ensuite with the doors/draws in the same Classic White in Gloss from Polytec.These photos don't do it justice!

The laundry was a nice surprise as we had laminate as the specification, not stone to save money, and the lady showed me this amazing gloss laminate that looks like stone, Laminex Limestone -Diamond Gloss Finish! We finished it off with doors in Wilsonart's Shadow in Matte Finish (The pics obviously don't show the real deal!)

Our Wall Colour is Solver's Silky Beige with trim in Solver's Studio White with Semi-Gloss finish.

We weren't happy with the builders selection for carpet, poor lady kept saying, 'what about this colour?' and I would reply with 'It's not the colour, it's the whole style/quality that's hideous!' Rental house meets doctor's surgery was the vibe, and it was definitley not for me.

For the external we picked Colourbond's Ironstone for the roofing and garage doors and Solvent's Nomad Beige for the render. This will look great with the timber slatting accents in the roof, the timber posts across the front of the house and the two timber front doors.

What are everyone's thoughts on my selections?

Well hubby had a lunch in town today so decided to stop past the block and see the advancements of the other houses, yet again! The neighbours have finally moved in, so jealous. He said they had washing on the line!

Plus the other side had cut their block and had their sewerage system in. He said there was a gang of tradies all working hard.

Looks like we'll now be the last ones to move into the street as all other houses are well advanced.

Will try to visit myself on the weekend and get some snaps to show you. Also I'm working on another post for the outcome of the colour selection, hope you all like!

By for now,

They have arrived.......................!

This stunning pendant light (Hermon+Hermon's Migo measuring 1300D x 360H) will be centred in the Media/Formal Living Room

This gorgeous white leather tucked pendant (Hermon+Hermon's Sea Anenome measuring 700Dx340H) will be centered in the Dining Room and will be offset by three Drum Pendants over the Kitchen Bench - still TBC.

Aren't they gorgeous! I have two giant boxes sitting in my spare room, which will probably stay there until we move, unless the nice electrian (here's hoping) will install them for me while he's doing the electrical work.

Colour Selection

Kitchen - Benches in Caeser Stone's Buttermilk (New Range) with off-white matte cabinetry

Bathroom - Really not sure what I'll do in here, although I do like Ceaser Stone's Organic White Stone....

Looking for a blue similar to this for my Master Bedroom.

External, this is the colour 'beige' I want the house painted however we'll be going for a grey-blue roof and garage door combo.

So I have the colour selection appointment this afternoon, a little anxious about whether we'll get everything done in 3 hours!
