We’re certainly happy with it. Good luck with your build. 😜

The photos are a good indication, although the wall colour does look darker than it actually is. You can see the tone is more of a greige than a blue.

Feedback on a two-story home design

I also like your floorplan, it’s clear you’ve put a lot of thought into the best use of floor space to meet your needs.
