MOVING FORWARD: PLANS FOR THE NEW HOUSE

If any of you have moved recently (or ever really) you can relate to the chaotic mix of emotions that are going on in this house right now. From paperwork & signatures to organizing & packing like a crazy person, there hasn’t been much free time to be had but that hasn’t stopped me from daydreaming about plans for the new house both inside and outside.

One thing I’m not only embracing, but also so excited about is the idea of change. A change of house, a change of location, a change of style and, really, a whole new life. Our rowhouse in the city has been really good to us over the last 3 1/2 years but this new house has so much to offer us in the change department. For starters, talk about the green! plans for the new houseAfter living in the city for the last few years, I think I forgot how much I loved being surrounded by trees. Not until we found our new house did I realize how much I missed being in the middle of so much green. We’re excited to get together some exterior design plans, which is something we haven’t been able to do in our city rowhouse and its limited outdoor space.plans for the new houseFrom fencing and landscaping to exterior lighting and painting, we have our work cut out for us but I can’t wait to tackle something that we haven’t done before. There’s something about the fear of the unknown that gets me even more excited! plans for the new houseIn another outdoor area, I’m loving the potential in this sweet little side porch and have been coming up with some on ideas on how to make it a little less kid-zone and a little more loungin’ in the treetops. Grown-up clubhouse? Twenty-something treehouse? You get the idea…

I’m also excited to embrace change with my design style on the inside. Much of what is in our house now will, of course, being coming with us to the new house but I can’t wait to bring new life to our old things and design an entirely new space. During the rare times that I have a moment to sit down and breath, I’ve been busy getting together inspiration for some plans for new house.

Here’s a little bit of what I have in mind…
