Townhouse Fixture Choices


It is taking F-O-R-E-V-E-R
for Toll Brothers to sell
the third needed townhouse in our building
so they can start digging and construction.
I keep telling myself it will happen in
God's time not mine but
I struggle with that...sadly!
The apartment is just soooo small!
I miss my own laundry room...
I get the heebee jeebies sharing with
the whole apartment complex!
I have to keep myself from thinking about
bedbugs and other creepy crawly things.

Thank goodness there are some things that
I can do to keep my dream alive...
last week I got to pick lighting,
faucets and knobs.
We decide on oiled rubbed bronze.
I love the Tuscan/Vintage feel.
Here is what I chose...

This faucet goes in the guest bath and half bath.

This shower head will be in both the
master bath and half bath.

I chose this faucet for the master bath because
my hubs likes the one handle for controlling water temp
better than the 2 handle. The bottom plate
will not be on the faucet to help this faucet
blend with shower head. They are 2 different brands.
I think it will work.

These are the drawer pulls for all the entire house.
They are faced in the wrong direction on the sample,
they actually face down so your fingers go in the open space.

These are the cabinet knobs for the entire house.
In the kitchen, I hope to find some vintage glass ones.
I love the ones at Anthropology but the screws on those are
WAY too long!

This is the kitchen faucet.

This is the lighting for the guest bath.
There will be one over each sink.

This is the light fixture for the master,
one over each sink.

Everything will be in oil rubbed bronze,
these are just the sample styles.

I am beyond excited to finally get going!
I did buy the rugs for the first floor.
I wanted to be sure to have them for
when we do move in.
I found what I knew I love and
got them, in fear that style will
change before Toll Brothers gets going!
(Yes, I know, we are blessed and I need to learn patience!)

Hope you are all having a great day!

I do love this part, selection!
You have made beautiful choices.
Have you chosen countertops, vanity tops?
My daughter has granite countertops. i could never afford those but oh, my goodness, I love them!!!
Are you going to share your rugs?
I am living vicariously through you!

Dear blog friend,
I am trying to put together a bloggers board.
This board would contain the name of the blog, the first name of the author ( last name, if you allow ) and birthday-- month and day only.
Once I get this put together, I will email to all participants.
If you know of others who would like to be listed, please give them my email address so I can add them.
I just think it would be handy to know when our friends birthdays are so we can send them our best wishes.
Those of you who have not yet sent me your address, please do. These will not be part of the blog board, but for my own personal address book. I like to send cards now and then.

I love the tuscan look! It looks like you have made some great choices! I love them all! I bet it is overwhelming! It looks so easy on tv, when the decorators do it! I hope the Toll Brothers can get going very soon! My day is going well, thanks for asking!
