Yes, shutters can be very expensive, and don't fit every house, they can make a house look over done as well.

I love roman blinds, they is a good choice! Can you find "soft" ones, that have a cloth look to them, then you wouldn't have to have curtains, and it would look clean and crisp. I am not sure how put curtains on the bay window, definatley not a topper how it is...The dinning room is much easier as that is where you can do the very long floor to ceiling elegant look on each window with a simple material.

living in the construction is a pain, but it will be worth it I am sure.

Keep us posted, this is fun.

Been offline for awhile during drywall phase of my own, new ceilings and skylights took a long long time.

Great job! Looks so nice and great choice of color! I wish you could have choosen my colors...I'm not having as much luck with the color, I have had the painter change it three times, hopefully third time lucky?

I love how the fireplace turned out. It all looks very nice.

I swear I had this same house once! You are on the right track with the fireplace wall, although I would have gone with glass paned front doors on the cabinets rather than the beadboard look (I am guessing these are the originals just painted). Though it works with fluting of the mantel, it clashes a bit with the tile around the mantel. Maybe it's just the color of the tile? Too stark a constrast between the white and the tile?

On the idea to do beadboard wainscoting in the dining room, as much as I love that look, once you do it, your stuck with it. Maybe remove the trim and do solid color? Keep those bay windows as frill free as possible. They are a great design element and curtains just muddy it up!

Have a blast! Your house will be gorgous! Here's some pics of fireplace walls I have transformed in the past.
