My boyfriend doesn’t know that I’m already planning for our future home. And NO, I don’t thinks it’s crazy. I’m not so that controlling that I’ve actually picked out a home on a specific street and I am just waiting to give him wrong directions one day so that he will haphazardly drive down that street and then I’ll hit him with the ” OH That was the home in my dream last night. What do you think it could mean? ” routine. (WINK WINK) Lol but no, seriously, I am just getting an idea of what I would like my future home to look like. Now my goal is not to financially BREAK my future hubby, so I thought it would be a good idea to look for ways to get everything I want, without spending a lot of money. One word….Pintrest. It’s great for inspiration for the home. I LOVE the Arts & Crafts section. I’m so happy that I could basically find D.I.Y ways to achieve the look I want for my home. Here are some of the things I like the best. Let me know it you have any better suggestions.
There are elements in each of these kitchens that I love…minus that horrible white chicken container THING on the counter in the last picture. Now these are amazing kitchens. And, you can’t really fake an amazing kitchen. If I am not able to buy a house with the perfect kitchen built in, I will slowly make it over myself. There are two requirements that I have. Stainless steel appliances & a large island in the middle. If I pick a home with wood carvings that I like, then i can stain them to my taste. Also I can just replace things as I go. Like new counter tops this year, new floors next year…you get it.
I really would rather be doing anything else than laundry. But I learned in college that it is necessary part of life. Therefore, I want to make that part of life as enjoyable as possible. I’m thinking bright colors, a mini TV, a little soft bench to rest on like the one above, and last but not least, big wicker baskets for easy carrying and organization. And I actually do plan on painting the walls this nice calm green color. It would keep the room bright. And the family photos & some decorative wall hangings could also serve to make my washing experiences less dull.
And that’s all I have so far. I’ll make another post when I figure out what else I want. Actually i’m pretty open to the rest of the home, as long as my kitchen and laundry room are a certain way. Mostly from now on i’ll be focusing on home decor instead of the actually rooms.
