~ A glimpse of the new Casa ~

I've decided where I will move to the end of June.  Thank God and all of you for helping me!  This is a new complex, still under construction but extremely beautiful. The day I finalized it was rainy and very cloudy so I just took a few pics and they are not the best ~ be forewarned. :)

This is the kitchen ~ which I LOVE!  Pantry is on the left. Not sure if you can see but the cabinets on the far right have glass fronts. Neat, huh?  Stainless steel appliances. The cook top is glass, side by side refrigerator and the sink here and in the bathroom are drop in.  The faucet is the shower type...move it around for cleaning, etc.  Counter tops are granite, beautiful back splash and under counter lighting.


A little different view...the bar on the other side of the sink is awesome!


This is the living room.  Looks smaller with this view and the paint does not show up well. The entire space is a greyish tone, not the taupe reflected.  The doors open onto a balcony.


This is the closet off the bedroom. The cabinet on the bottom is a "laundry chute".  The other side opens into the laundry room. :)


I know I took a photo of the bathroom but cannot find it.  Missed out on the bedroom, laundry area, etc.  My mind was racing and like I said, it was a rainy, cloudy day.  Can't wait to show you more!  You won't believe the pool, lap pool, cabana areas, the workout room, etc.  Yes, it's smaller than where I am now but that's ok.  I'm paying for extra space now that I honestly don't use or need. I know many of you have spacious homes, however, as a retiree I don't "need" that nor do I want to care for it.  I want life to be calmer and peaceful...certainly away from the noise here, the leaks and all the other problems I've encountered.

I am continuing to declutter, toss and donate.  Really is a wonderful, lighter feeling!  I'm imagining the decor for the new space. I want an accent wall in the bedroom painted navy ~ I have a deep teal now.  I'm collecting gold framed mirrors for that wall and I want bright and happy in the bathroom! 

My headboard is white tufted velvet and the bedding is yet to be determined.  


Thanks again for all your good thoughts, prayers and kind words!  Will keep you posted as I go and I will take more photos when I can.

  2. Wow, Pat, it looks just gorgeous! A fabulous kitchen. So happy for you, to be away from those noisy neighbors. Sounds like you have nice amenities there, too. You and I are in the same boat, single retirees, and we learned what is important in life, not stuff, not things, it is the intangibles.... xo

  18. It looks gorgeous Pat - being in a kitchen that was meant to be renovated and never was - I am so envious of yours ( in a good way lol - because I am happy for you - really really over the top happy for you )
    Those doors opening on to the balcony are gorgeous too - filling it with flowers I hope?
