Welcome To Several New Followers....

 When I opened my email this morning I was so happy...
To see so many new follower requests!

I have missed blogging so much.
But some days with us in the rental...
it feels like a hotel room.

Not  the pretty, homey spaces I like to share.
But soon, very soon... I hope to be settled into our new home.
And sharing all the spaces and ideas.

Let's Talk About The Brick Color....

Hello again and welcome back!
These past few days have been a whirlwind of design choices.
It has been fun, confusing and time consuming.
 One thing I knew is that I did not want any plain solid colored brick.
So when I saw the "Aspen" with a brown tinted base and smeared grouted accents...
I fell in love.

Ceiling Fans and More Lighting Decisions....


Hello again... more design decisions today.
I went to the lighting center and wow....
There is a mind blowing amount to choose from.
I knew this, but the size of this shop was amazing.

Okay, I am taking risks this time!
I love the three blade fan shown above.
It is 60 inches across and so neat.
I have the girls vote... hope hubby likes it too.

Picking Out Pretty Lighting...

Hello again, and welcome back to Suddenly Southern!

Today I wanted to share a few lighting choices.... 
I love how many wonderful options we all have now a days.....
In the entire house I am doing rubbed bronze/brown metals.
So even if the pics don't show it... it will be in bronze.  



This first is a lantern style and I really like it.
I am thinking of using it over my island.
It is huge, and will make quite a statement.

Making Decorating Decisions.... The Color Pallette and Design


2814 square feet.... doesn't sound so big...
but somehow its huge when you're picking out every square inch of it.

Yes, tomorrow is a long awaited day... 
Our appointment at the design center at Stoneridge Homes.

It has been a long two months coming for me to drive myself nuts about colors.
The walls were really simple... three colors... 

Repose Grey - SW 7015
Main Color----a greige (bit of beige) great room, kitchen, entry, hall.
Krypton SW 6247
a grey with blues... master bedroom, master bath, dining.

Monorail Silver- SW 7663
a true grey...for kids rooms, bathrooms, utility, study.

Okay, good start....

Spring In Alabama....And Big News

Hello again, I know it has been too long again.
A lot has happened since we last chatted.
Its been a little over a week since we emptied out our Indiana farmhouse.
It was exhausting and emotional.  But it is all in the bigger plan.
Part of my heart will always be in Indiana with family and friends.
But it is a welcomed, warm feeling of hopefulness that I have now.
Spring is beautiful in Huntsville.
There are blooming trees and plantings everywhere.
One of the first things I noticed is all the landscape in the area.
Not just homes, but along freeways, parking lots and businesses.
I love all the lushness and cozy hometown feel.
Plus daffodils bloomed before Valentines Day... crazy right?

This is my brand new endeavor.
My previous blog was called "Creative Country Mom"

Lol... I hope so, I hung out there for nine years.
But we are selling our farmhouse and have moved to Alabama.
New home, new start, new blog.
It just felt like it was time.
