COLORS AND INTERIOR DESIGN

Steven currently owns a Cape Cod style home. It has the original dark oak hardwood floors and the vintage charm of a 1920s-1930s house. This is where we will make our first home together after we are married.

We love darker woods and industrial farmhouse style. Our kitchen will be white with shades of dark and light gray. Our main bathroom will be accented in sapphire blue. Our powder room will be accented in goldenrod yellow or honey mustard color.

Our living room will be accented in cranberry red and denim blue. Most of our house will be either white washed or painted with shades of warm grays for walls and tiles, and woods in dark wood tones. Metals will be dark hues such as oil rubbed bronze or wrought iron.
