We ordered a toilet, and a sink (lovely white ones!), and we've got big plans for updating and prettying up our horrid 1970s bathroom. It's got me dreaming now, dreaming of all the things I'd like to do to our house. We're pretty positive that we're going to stay here, in our split-level, with its good sized rooms, hardwood floors and nice big yard. We love our street, our quiet neighbourhood, our close proximity to the lake and trails, the grocery store, the post office, Starbucks... As time goes by, and as we (hopefully) have more money, we will tackle the renovating, one room at a time. It will take years and years, but it will be our very own space, and we will be so proud of it. There's no way we could ever afford to buy our dream house, so we'll just have to create it.
Here's a little bit of what I have in mind:
Maybe with a place to put the keys and the mail. And a boot tray! I love the idea of a boot tray.
I would love to have a home office where I could write letters, read email, blog... I love the vibrant splashes of colour in this bright, white space.
This one is pretty great, too. Look at the terrific use of such a small space. I love that it's two-sided.
A gorgeous bedroom sanctuary, complete with comfy chair for reading... and a fireplace! I have always dreamed of having a bedroom with a fireplace in it. It's so "A Little Princess," isn't it?
The perfect family-friendly dining room. I think this one is beautiful. I love the huge windows, the combination of the wood and the paint colour. And nothing is so nice as fresh cut flowers on the table.
Imagine doing laundry in a room that looks like this! It would be a joy. I adore that light fixture.
I know it is so totally unrealistic to have a creamy white living room when we're raising two little boys (boys who are dirt magnets!), but isn't this beautiful? So serene. And hey, this is my dream house, so I'm allowed to have a white living room, right?
How about this for a fabulous family kitchen? I love the island, the wooden countertops, the chalkboard on the cabinet door. I would love to have a door that leads outside from the kitchen, too.
I'd like this for a little sitting room off the kitchen. A place to sit and drink my tea. Light and bright.
