Our New Home in Denver, CO

It’s been 7 months since we found out that we were moving to the Denver area and it’s been a LONG transition! When my husband and I went to visit in August to look at new homes in the area we wanted to be in I loved NOTHING that was pre-built. Everything felt like a big compromise compared to my spacious TX home (and pool I just built, CLICK HERE to view our Texas home and closet reveal)! Then we heard that a family was pulling out of an existing semi-custom home build in the exact subdivision I wanted to be in.

In late summer we were told that it should be done Winter 2022, well that quickly changed to we will try and get you in by January right after you move to Denver. Let’s just say 4 months later we are moving in mid-March and there are still things not done on our home. If you are thinking about a custom or semi-custom build just know it takes FOREVER and it’s basically a full time job in itself.

Since we did not start this build there we a ton of things we could not change but some that we could. I’m not a big fan of silver or chrome finishes so I switched most faucets and handles to gold and matte black. Also we had a chance to pick some of our light fixtures and blinds. Pretty much everything else was set in stone.

I’ve had so many questions from those of you building or renovating on what finishes are in our new home I figured I would dedicate this post to all of that. Then as we decorate and organize I’ll update you with those spaces.

For the bedrooms I knew I wanted a brushed gold for the “girls” rooms and matte black finishes for my son’s room and our guest room. I LOVE how his LED light turned out and Miss A’s more feminine white fixture. My office light plays off the gold I have in decor and love how it’s all coming together.

One thing I would absolutely change is the Delta faucets and fixtures in my office bath and Miss A’s bathroom. The champagne gold finish leaves so many finger prints and just looks dirty all the time. Unfortunately the builder had already roughed in for Delta fixtures and there was no way to switch brands. If you are going with Delta just know their Champagne gold color is VERY hard to match.

One of my favorite features of this home is a mud room area!! We always have a mess of backpacks, jackets and shoes. This hallway also has a “craft” room or what I’m calling the homework room. We are stocking this with all our art supplies, wrapping paper etc. I’m still trying to figure out wall units but I have the Billy bookcases from Ikea in there now along with an Ikea desk.

One downside to this home is the size of the primary bedroom and closet. While I love many of the other spaces we went ahead and had a custom closet built to maximize the space as well as paint the master a different color that we loved in our old home, Sea Salt.
