Home Dreaming

Does your dream home look anything like this? Love the lighting, greenery and brick walkway!

By now, if you read my blog or follow me on social media, you should have caught on that we are in the process of buying and selling. We are beyond excited for this next step in our lives and are trying to stay un-stressed about the house situation.

Luckily, buying a new house means I can dream about all the things I want to see in it. Unfortunately, my big ideas cost a lot so we will be doing a lot of DIY (which is fine to me). 

Here is our simplified wishlist that we gave our Realtor:
3+ Bedrooms
2.5+ Bathrooms
Large, fenced-in yard
2 car garage
1500+ Square feet
"Office" room

Like I said I have big dreams for our future house. Below are pictures that I am drawn too and the look I really want to go for with the new place. Obviously that will be contingent on the house we buy, but it is my initial dream. All of these images can be found on my Pinterest boards!

I like the windows with the black cabinets. so it's not too darkLove the white cabinets and granite. Great contrast with the dark wood floors. love the turquoise and the chandeliers oil rubbed bronze fixtures and hardware with stainless steel appliances, light granite countertops and light cabinets
