So, it’s officialish! My husband and I are beginning to seriously consider the prospect of homeownership. Of course, it’s a decision that requires a lot of thought, research, and soul searching. We’ve been living together for the better part of a decade, and for the most part we’ve moved every single year! The thought of putting down roots and committing to a neighborhood (and school district) feels really really monumental. Let’s set property taxes and mortgage rates aside for just a second, and just think about aesthetics!
As I sit in the living room of my Northern Liberties row house with my shabby fiddle leaf fig, natural light is super high on my list of priorities for this home of the future. I think the whole family and our house plants and I are all in agreement on this one. I’m sure we’ll have to make some sacrifices when it comes to choosing this home, but let there be light! Almost nothing trumps the value of natural light for me. I seem to be most drawn to spaced with great light, white or very light walls, and exciting surprises of color. What do you love about your current home? What do you dream about in your house of the future?
