Last year we started a House Makeover P
roject Plan, as it involves many projects! One of my intentions in life is to have a beautiful house we can called home. And by beautiful I don’t mean a huge mansion or luxurious house. What I want are cozy, homey, relaxing, uncluttered, organized spaces we really enjoy. A house that we are excited to get to, a home we are happy to be in. I also want our house to express our personality. I want it to be our little personalized haven.
Being an architect I truly believe the places we inhabit can affect our mood. So a better home, a better mood, a better you!
And of course I want to accomplish all that on a budget. Well, not exactly a budget but I don’t want this makeover to cost us an arm and leg either. I think one way to good design is knowing how to mix high-end pieces (or even not that high-end) with thrift store or garage sale finds. You just need some creativity, time and a lot of patience. It’s going to be a slow, trial and error process, a constant work in progress, tackling one room at a time (or maybe two or three).
Here I’ll be posting that progress, with before and after pictures (most of the time). Maybe I’ll inspire you to better your home, too!
Welcome to our home.
