Since I shared a glimpse at where we are on the house front recently, I thought I’d follow up by diving into some of the details! I’ve been gathering inspiring photos for over a year now for this house, so knowing we are almost to the point to start implementing interior design plans is very exciting. Brandon has mostly taken the lead on everything up until now, but I think this is when I’ll find myself in the pilot seat.
Speaking of interior design… we are really excited to be working with Betsey Mosby of Betsey Mosby Interiors. She is such a gem and has exceptional taste! I feel like I have a very good grasp of what I like, but I always struggle in wondering whether my ideas would actually look good or not. Usually I am pleased, but there have definitely been times where I second guessed my decisions. When it’s just one room I’m working on, I am willing to risk a bad decision, but not for an entire home! So with that said, I’m really thankful to have Betsey! Building a home has been a bit overwhelming for me so far, so knowing we have Betsey to guide us through the interior design process is a huge weight off my shoulders moving forward.
Below is a rendering of the front elevation of our home, which was designed by our architect, Beau Clowney.
They are such a talented group.
The house has to be elevated like this due to flood zones and proximity to the water, etc. But I’m so excited because underneath the house, there will be an open area where you can walk through from the front yard to the back, with a living area under there as well.
The walk-through will be similar to this home below, but centered under the house.
Then it will open up to a living area under the house, inspired by this gorgeous home below.
All of the images below are sourced from this pinterest board.
As for the exterior, it will be a creamy white with the same color shutters. I want to keep the house as tonal as possible, allowing the lush green landscape to really show off.
Now that I’ve shown you all of these dreamy inspiration pictures, I want to make sure I mention that it might be years and years before I finish the house to my liking. Interior design is expensive and I definitely think it’s something not to be rushed! These photos above are all absolute goals, so translating these inspiration photos into my own design is something to take with a grain of salt. They will simply be guiding my design decisions.
Just wanted to put that out there!
