First Peek Inside!

While progress was being made on the exterior of Quince Cottage, THINGS were also happening inside! There didn't seem to be much point in sharing photos of framing, they don't translate well and usually resemble a hodgepodge of giant Popsicle sticks.

This past week our kitchen cabinets were installed, some trim was added to various rooms, tile went into laundry and baths--it's really starting to look amazing!

Here's a shot of the family room, with gas fireplace.

And here's one looking from the kitchen into the morning/dining room. Those French doors lead out to the screen porch.

Finally here's one of the kitchen. Isn't it GORGEOUS? We were absolutely thrilled when we saw it...
Our current kitchen is very roomy and modern, with super dark cabinets, modern brushed nickel pulls and a standard beige tile backsplash. Wonderful, IF that's your style. It's not ours, but we were severely limited by both that builder's design choices and our budget. The cabinets in our new home are an upgrade, but we think they're really worth it. Capitol City Homes offers WAY more choices for cabinets and granite than our previous construction company. That's one of the reasons we chose Capitol City to build our new home.

We've ordered all the cabinet hardware (for both kitchen and baths). Seemingly simple features, like knobs and pulls, can add lots of personality. If design is important to you, t's definitely worth the trouble to find something special.

We'll show you those knobs and pulls in an upcoming post. Sorry, hate to tease, but...

Now how about you? What would your dream kitchen look like? Painted cabinets or stained? Traditional or modern? All one color or mix it up? Tell us in Comments!

Quince Cottage believes in creating a beautiful, comfortable home that reflects the unique taste and personality of its owner. In our own place, rustic and opulent rub shoulders. 
Think gilded mirror against a ship-lap wall.
