>C and I have been doing a little home window shopping. We have popped in to a few open houses to see what is out there, what we like and what we definately do not like. After living in our condo for the past nine years (C for 16) we have fully developed our want list.
- No angled walls
- No shared walls (with other units)
- No HOA’s
- Open floor plan for family living spaces (great room – kitchen/living/dining)
- One and a half bathrooms
- One floor (no stairs)
- Fenced back yard
- Lots of natural light
Or a nice copper whirlpool tub.
I would really like an open concept “great room” for my living, dining and kitchen areas. Kind of like these photos from Gerard Butler’s New York loft.
Some inspiration for the great room and kitchen (again Greige and Gerard Butler).
I think a minimalist environment can be acheived with using only furniture pieces you need and getting that luxuriousness from things like paneled walls, velvet fabrics and copper ornamentation.
