but I just can't seem to bring myself to take pictures of this whole, big, silly, awesome house. So instead, I took a few of the things I love the most and the teeny tiny things that I do NOT like. There's always gotta be something and I'm sure you'll see why in a second when you start to scroll through.
Things I love:
In both our family room (seen here) and our kitchen leading out to the pool
we have these awesome glass doors that accordion open and create
the perfect indoor/outdoor living space.
(The kids are performing their daily build of a fort around the coffee table.)
This shower is just behind the kitchen and is possibly my most favorite thing.
It's an indoor/outdoor shower that leads to the pool and is
right across from the garage. If it ever fills up with sand I just
open the door and sweep it right out. Genius!
This is the view when you walk into our master bedroom.
Clean, I know. :) That big wood "fence" is actually the head board of our bed.
At first I thought it looked kind of oddly placed and intrusive but now
I find it a lot more private and I like being surrounded by all the windows when I'm in bed.
This is what it looks like beyond the head board.
I love the private lanai off the master.
There are actually 4 other rooms with
private lanais not as big as this one. It's neat.
This is the master shower. It's a double headed shower
that once again is very indoor/outdoor.
Sorry for the glare but I'm no photographer,
especially when pregnant and lazy.
Beyond those bamboo reeds is a permanent screen.
The wind is always coming through and
there's always a sense of being outside.
Things I do NOT love:
The two pedestal sinks in the master and the tacky bidet right in the middle.
The decor of the "Sunday room."
Maroon and gold and flourishy all over.
The furniture...bless it's tacky little heart.
No that is not a sheet over a table in the corner,
it's a table cloth over one of those
cheap tripod tables from like Anna's Linens.
Cause, you know? It's "fancy."
So there you have it. A few pics of the house. There are many, many more things that I just love about this place. The double dishwasher, fridge, W/D is amazing! I also love the giant wooden dining table and all of the extra bedrooms. Plenty of toilets too and storage space which is schwing for when people come...if they ever do. :(
As for other things that I'm kinda like, meh, it's mostly just furnishings. I think overall the furniture is pretty unfortunate. But seriously, who cares? It's awesome to have places to sit and eat and sleep and not worry about having to have purchased all of it. Someday I'll finally get to furnish/design my own home. Who knows when? But someday.
Hope you liked the virtual tour. Now who's going to come and take an actual tour?! Seriously people, we are kind of shocked that no one has made any definite plans yet. Come visit wiki wiki!
