house hunt

You guys, I feel like I've looked at every available home in a 20 mile radius. Let's just say... Dallas has a lot of fugly homes. Sometimes I just can't even believe what some people decide to live with. With such simple updates the home could be so fresh and pretty. Alas, we've walked into so many spaces that instantly make my head hurt they are so tragic.
I've stumbled upon one in particular that I love, but so does the rest of Dallas, so our chances are slim to none at getting it.
Isn't she just the cutest? I'm obsessed with the fireplace, arched doorways, ceilings, built-in bookshelves in the entry, and wood floors. It's exactly what I want, but I'm not about to get into a bidding war and overpay, so I'm just patiently waiting to stumble across the right home at the right time. So while I can't start designing yet, I do know that pretty much any bathroom we get will need to be a total gut (people, don't neglect your bathrooms!), so I've started putting together different possibilities for the design. This is the one I'm leaning toward so far.

Imagine with white floors and subway tile all the way up to the ceiling in the bath. So good. I'm purchasing these mirrors today, and until I have a bathroom to put them in they'll have a home above our nightstands in the bedroom.
