OK, so it’s probably not really, truly the final house post. After all, houses — like life — are constantly in flux, and our house is no exception. Besides the fact that our basement remains unfinished, which means that this blog may indeed still have legs, this post is meant to show the culmination of all of our hopes and dreams, planning and adjusting of our new home.
So here goes. And just as an FYI, we based much of the house’s design on the Nancy Meyers film “Something’s Gotta Give.” Anyone who knows me well also knows that I’m a Diane Keaton fan, and this movie showcases her in all her quirky glory, as well as Jack Nicholson, Keanu Reeves, Frances McDormand and Amanda Peet. The house is a character in and of itself and has inspired many knockoffs. Ours is just the latest of many but one, I feel, that will stand the test of time. We love it. Coastal in Kansas — enjoy the view!
The half bath, not shown here, is one of my favorite spaces — complete with soft nautical wallpaper (the print, not the texture) — but trying to snap a decent photo of that just didn’t happen. Same goes for the laundry room, the office and the Jack-n-Jill bathroom spaces. So if you know me in the real world, you’ll just have to come by for a cocktail and take a gander in person.
So that’s about it for now. Please feel free to ask me any house-related questions and I’ll do my best to answer. We had a blast building from scratch and highly recommend both the process and our builder, Nies Homes. Salut!
