Dream Home

Lulu Blue and I have been talking for a long time about buying a place of our own. This was something I have always wanted to do, but at the same time, the idea of living in one place for the rest of my life is kind of a terrifying one. On top of that, we happen to live in one of the most expensive places in the country, and being a single income family, buying a home of our own has always seemed pretty much impossible.

But more recently, I have started to think about this more seriously, and to start taking steps towards making this dream a reality. This means that we have had to adjust a bit. For instance, there is no way that we will be able to buy a single family home, the hefty price tag puts us out of the running for that. But we may be able to spring for a small condo. Sometimes you just go with the flow, right?

So, with that in mind, I wanted to put together a little Frankenstein of a dream home, with rooms I found all over the place, all combined to make the home we want!

Enjoy my daydreaming!

  1. I have a soft spot for a welcoming little entryway. Somewhere to take off your shoes, hang your hat, drop your keys, and let yourself feel the peace of coming home.
  2. An uncluttered yet homey living room is the best place to hang out and read, listen to music, or watch some TV. And plants, of course. Lots of plants.
  3. Realistically speaking, I won’t have a huge chef’s kitchen in a small condo, but that doesn’t mean it can’t be adorable. This kitchen reminds me of the one we had in our previous place, I even had a similar rug that I bought in Denmark and lugged all the way back to California.
  4. This dining room. Exactly.
  5. I love a serene, neutral bedroom. With lots of natural light and a bed big enough to spread out on.
  6. Lulu Blue’s addition. Her dream bedroom.
  7. We would be lucky if we have two bathrooms like in our old place, but I don’t mind sharing if I get a tub like that.

It will likely be a little while before we get this becomes a reality for us, but it’s my two year plan. I don’t have much time. Lulu Blue will be 18 in two years (a year and a half, I guess. seriously!) and I would like to accomplish this before that happens. If nothing else, working towards something is always worth it, in my opinion.
