Lately I have been thinking a lot about the future. Where will we end up settling down? What kind of house will we finally buy? We still have 5 years of school ahead of us, but sometimes it is fun to plan some of these things; even though I know I can't plan that far ahead in the future.
For the location:
Of course I love Seattle and would love to be by my family.
Although, I would also love to live in Oregon
(preferably close enough to go to the coast every so often)
If the great northwest isn't where we end up I would also be in heaven in Florida.
While we were there last Fall we drove through a couple cities that we really liked.
For the style:
The last two years of blogging has opened my eyes to the many styles of interiors there are. As of recent I have been drawn to the Rustic Revival style. I took this quiz to see what it was called and read more about it. Go take it yourself!
First off, the layout:
I love ramblers (since they tend to have more light) and I would love something with big windows
I shared this pic a while ago on my blog already, but it really does portray my style to a tee. The dark rustic wood, white fabrics, big windows, lots of natural light, and wicker.
I love the contrast of dark wood and white; and an open kitchen is a must.
I am also a huge fan of interesting ceilings and crown molding. Along with big, tall doors...
I would love to have a fireplace (preferably white)
And, a spot for a desk out in the main living area that doesn't look out of place.
I love big, open rooms, and this includes the bathrooms.
Again, the contrast and marble will always be my counter-top of choice :)
Stay tuned for the rest of my dream home...
