Christmas at the Ashworth home

Here are some pictures of our newly built home. We moved in about a month ago and all of us were excited for the Christmas holiday finally being settled. As you can tell I am obsessed with the colors blue and green. I have stained all the poppler wood soft blue-grays and white washes. I left the walnut wood on the floor its natural color by only adding a water-base coating to protect the floor. I thought the natural color added the perfect earthiness next to the other color tones of the home. At first my husband was a little nervous about all the blues and greens. I had to remind that the sky is blue, the oceans are blue and the grass is you ever get sick of them?....NO!!! I never knew colors had such an impact in people's lives. All I can say is blue and green make me happy!

I have a question for you...when you say "I have stained all the poppler wood soft blue-grays and white washes", did you do this yourself, or did you hire someone?
