I'll get to the pretty eye candy soon, but here's a little home update for you. We are at a big decision making point with our house where we can't decide whether to do some bigger renovations to make us want to stick around for a while (which would ultimately price us out of our neighborhood since we have one of the larger homes—and I say "larger home" lightly because most in our hood are around 900 - 1200sq ft., whereas ours is about 1800 or so.)
Or.... we want to hit the road and move on to the next house.
We've been looking at homes here and there over the past six months. We've met with a home builder and walked across home sites thick of bugs and brush. We've looked at some new builds and some major fixer uppers. And then we keep coming back to our old brick bungalow and remember the reason we fell in love with it—the location. And it's sweet little charm. It's such a walkable area and less than a mile from downtown. Close to Brandon's work, too. Oh, and we have great neighbors!
But the kicker is that if we do some more renovations, we're at a point where anything else we put into the house will not be money we recoup when we sell. That's okay with us if we feel like we'll stay here for a handful of years at least. So we met with a contractor last week and are waiting to hear back on the estimate and extent of the work.
Meanwhile, I've been going crazy on Pinterest envisioning design plans and assessing our overall interiors style. I'm always always searching for inspiration and I found a bunch of it in J. K. Kling Associates. Woah! So many pretty things I've had on my pin boards were from this mother-daughter design team duo and I didn't even know it. Today I'm sharing some major lust-worthy images of work they've done.
