Well, anyway, I spend way too much time thinking about the house I want to have when I have a house again. I miss being a homeowner! That last house (and life) was just not meant to be. But the future looks pretty bright! (On my Pinterest page!) haha.
I don't want anything grandiose. I've never been the person who wanted a veritable mansion. I prefer cozy and intimate. To me a "big" house is like the 2500+ square foot Craftsman I was living in with my family most recently. The house I owned with my ex-husband was a 1500 square foot three bedroom and that was perfectly sufficient. I'm into the bungalow, I'm especially into New England style farmhouses. That is what I am envisioning. I want a home that combines my love of french country and rustic decor WITH bright colors and a slightly glamorous feminine style. (P.S. Take this HomeGoods quiz: you won't regret it. It's a fun way to figure out how to define your personal style.)
My results are "Farmhouse Glam with a touch of Classic." That sounds about right! Except, I have these ultra modern inclinations thrown in with the bright, bold color palette I gravitate toward. I'm not as into the whites, browns, and neutrals that seem to typify this style, however, I really appreciate the beauty of simple, white shabby chic homes that I run across constantly on design blogs.
Anyway, I cannot stop pinning inspiration to my Future Dream Rustic Farmhouse Board. Here are my favorites of the day. Think of it as a virtual tour of my future home.
