People who live in my town are suspicous of my claim there is no house move in the works...I have a reputation and I'm not living up to it! Alas, I do believe those days of buying, "prettying up" and selling at a profit in rapid succession are over. But, if I were putting our house up for sale and stood to bank a big return, this is probably the look I'd be shooting for next. (Though not quite so large!) Modern with enough classic elements to keep it familiar and comfortable. While I'd mix up the furniture and bring in more color...the architecture is spot on.
Clean lines and metal framed doors warmed by paneling and endless windows.
I'd want to replace the table with something more organic and bring in color through the chairs,
but adore this space with it's dark floors and open ceiling.
Again, just enough traditional to keep the modern welcoming.
I'd pick up a gray from the stone floors for the cabinetry color.
In the mud room and bedroom I can't think of a thing I'd change!
Oh, yes I can...a taller bed and some happy color and pattern on pillows.
And while I don't have this home, I DO have that little tripod side table in silver with the ring.
It was a steal from Target for around $25.
It's presence here kind of amuses me...grounding the home in at least a bit of reality?
And so, despite the current economy, here's to dreaming...
