The Perfect One.

Our family room is definitely the hub of our home. Adam, Henry Ann (the pup) and I can usually be found here. I occupy the blue and white printed chair and Adam stays put on our cognac leather couch with Henry curled up next to him. Right now we live in an old house, it has beautiful built-ins and the details are impossible to find in new construction; however, as we make a life for ourselves in Rochester we're looking at the bigger picture and putting our adult pants on - it's time to buy. Having an open concept kitchen and family room would be such a luxury. Right now our house is boxed into rooms - our front door opens to a huge entry way that moves right into our family room, but the kitchen, dining room, mudroom, bathroom, and the refrigerator (which has its own hall) don't flow. I just want to knock out walls! I've taken to Pinterest and Houzz (where I grabbed the photos below from) to see what really appeals to me.

My don'ts:
Dark, stuffy, lots of brown wood, tile floors, closed off spaces, low ceilings, not enough natural light, cookie cutter

My do's:
Open, airy, easy, unpretentious, classic, white, mixed patterns, personality, a big yard for Henry Ann, stainless steel appliances, built-ins

Oh....and this girl wants double sinks and her own walk in closet. Walk in the park, right?

I want our home to feel like a home, not a hospital (no offense babe).
