House Inspiration

After we finished our renovation we were so sick of it that we have just put it on hold for the past year +

But now we are starting to get the urge to get it wrapped up and I have been looking for inspiration. I found this house on Pinterest and it has so many qualities that our house has (and so many that I would LOVE for it have). Here are a few of them…

One of the things we need to do is build a wall of builtins and storage for the family room. We have been living with our tv sitting on the Pottery Barn storage we had in our playroom in Chapel Hill but it would be so nice to get it the way we want it.

I threw in a picture of the kitchen since it is right off the family room like ours with the same lights and cabinets and colors ๐Ÿ™‚

And this office/carftroom. Love

And the mudroom. It’s our next project- and this is exactly what I want.

Hoping Blake doesn’t go far away to school. Glad we have another year with him home. SO hard to believe he will be a Senior next year.

Andy is crazy

Did you know that goats have rectangular pupils? It’s because they are prey and need to see all around them

q14a7187q14a7195

Predators have pupils going the other way because they need to act fact on what’s in front of them. Crazy.

We made it home just in time for Blake to throw on his homecoming clothes.
