“Instead of worrying about what you cannot control, shift your energy to what you can create.” – Roy T. Bennett
Good morning! We are supposed to be moving into our new home in about 30 days and I woke up this morning feeling stressed just thinking about everything that still needs to be done (both on the new house and in regards to packing and being ready to move). As I was drinking my morning cup of coffee, I came above this quote above. What a perfect quote for this morning and a great reminder.
So, after seeing this quote I decided to shift my focus to something that makes me happy. Home Design! I love thinking about what our new home will be like (and perhaps I sometimes spend too much time on this). When I came across this photo from Brandon Architects, I absolutely fell in love with this living room plan. I love the built-ins around the fireplace with the floating shelves. .
This photo has been my inspiration for our family room. I am hopeful that our room will look similar to this photo here. Our cabinets will be white (although these blue cabinets are gorgeous 😍😍😍!) and we will not have the ceiling beams like shown in the photo. Our ceiling is vaulted and perhaps in the future we will add wood panels to the ceiling. Since the beginning of our build, we have been working with Allen’s Fine Woodworking to design our cabinets and soon they will be installing our cabinets from Medallion Cabinetry.
Soon it’ll be fun to look back on some of my “inspiration” photos and see how they have guided us in our home building journey. For now I’m off to pour another cup of coffee and pull out those moving boxes 😉
