The Ashland House: Don’t Take it For Granite

Okay, I’m going to make a list of things to share with you but first of all I’d like to say the following:

Just because something is on my list doesn’t mean it looks bad in your house. Β I also will not judge you if you invite me over and have one or more of these things in your home. You get to design your home the way you want to. If you want to paint your exterior brick be my guest. πŸ˜‰

Things you will not find in The Ashland House:

Granite Countertops (we have these in our current place and it’s time for a change)

The color teal. Β Anywhere.

Yellow Wall Paint

Thresholds (You know, those raised pieces of wood that cover up the boarder* where two different types of flooring meet? These are particularly popular where wood flooring transitions to tile.)

Floating Shelves in the kitchen (These are very popular right now but what about the dust?! Do you know what is in dust?)

Mr. OPRFLife has kindly requested that the faucets in our bathroom have only one handle so we have agreed on this style:

Master Bath Faucet

Our kiddo said the following to me yesterday, “To be honest, I wasn’t excited about the new house before but now I am!”

Good thing he came around. It’s not like he has a choice and he gets to live there for free.

Thanks for reading and have a Joyful Day!

      “Don’t Take it For Granite”!!! I see what you did there and I like it (having been a sucker for a bad pun since probably birth)!

      I’m with you on the granite issue, but we must agree to disagree concerning drinking wine and blogging!! My stand is: Their our knot too more compatible ax then drinking and blogging! Cheers!

      My neighbor has teal walls and NO BLINDS!! If you’re going to paint your wall god-awful-teal, PLEASE put up blinds for the sake of the neighbors. LOL *This is a public service announcement.* πŸ™‚

      As a geologist, I love granite countertops (and any other natural rock or mineral countertop), but they are very overrated. Not to mention one of the most common rock types on Earth. If you really want to mix it up, fancy something interesting and have deep enough pockets you should try for labradorite countertops! Absolutely stunning!
