I have homebuyers fever. Is that a thing? Because it should be.
I’ve found myself daydreaming of the perfect house for us. One where we could start a family. Ideally, I would love a house flooded with natural light and hardwood floors. I love homes with character and luckily for us, there are a lot of those in our ideal neighborhood.
Unfortunately, there aren’t many for sale at the moment. At least not in our current price range. So, I’m currently left with just daydreaming of what our future nest will look like.
Thanks to the modern miracle of Pinterest, I’m able to share a few of my dreams with you.
Is mid-century modern southwest boho a theme?
Exposed beams for the win. I love how bright and airy both of these spaces are. I’d be completely content to call either one of these my kitchens. I’m also a sucker for Turkish kilim rugs.
Dream living room
The colors! I adore living spaces with neutral colors. I could never ever have a white couch. I can barely get through an entire day in a white shirt without acquiring an array of multicolored stains. That being said, I still love the look. I also wish that I could own a few more plants. With our travel schedule, it’s hard to find ones that not only look beautiful but don’t need a ton of TLC.
Dream dining room
When it comes to a dining room, I envision a place that’s bright and inviting. I would either prefer a more contemporary space or one that’s more traditional. Chris and I like to refer to them as “Thanksgiving rooms” or the houses that you see in movies where the entire family gathers around the table for Thanksgiving. The first photo is more modern (um, look at those hardwood floors! I die.) while the last two encompasses a more “Thanksgiving” feel with a modern touch.
I’m really diggin’ the southwest theme. I love the bright colors in contrast with the neutral walls. I would be happy to fall asleep or wake up in any of the bedrooms below.
As our currently apartment only has one bathroom that came complete with a pepto bismol pink tub and sink, we’re pretty excited at the idea of starting over fresh in our future home. I’m a big fan of white subway tile and the first bathroom pictured below is my jam. That being said, I do love the industrial feel in the second photo and that there are double sinks.
This is totally putting the cart before the horse, but we have been having more baby talks that usual. We would love to continue to travel with our future children. As it won’t be nearly as much as we’re doing now, it would be incredible to show them some of our favorite corners of the globe. And the more we talk about having children, the more I want them right.now.
So, let’s just go ahead and speculate what their future nurseries might look like… for fun.
Real talk. My ovaries started screaming as soon as I started sifting through the nursery pictures. I am both thrilled and terrified at the idea of having children. It would be a major life shift, but also a welcomed one. But that’s for another post.
So while the hubs and I continue to shop for future homes, we’ll be keeping in mind these photos for inspiration. And I’ll be sure to keep you posted on the house hunt.
