Home Inspiration: Family Coziness

Monday, May 7, 2012

Balazs and I love our downtown flat but at times we daydream about living in a cozy little house out of the city with plenty of outdoor space for our dogs to run about and tons of fruit trees in the backyard. This tiny spot on the Sauvie Island feels totally cozy and oh-so perfect for a little family. You can almost smell the home-cooked meal in that airy kitchen, can’t you? I would spend evenings looking at the stars while sitting on the front porch with a glass of wine, or organise weekend garden parties. Bliss!

Loves, what do you prefer, a flat or a house? Where do you live now? What's your dream place? xo

P.S: A few more beautiful home inspirations!
P.P.S: I can't stop thinking about this tiny Brooklyn treehouse.

I am picturing myself having a bubble bath in that tub right about now.
We are renting a little flat right now but hoping to have a small house out of the city sometimes next year. Cheers to Monday, Grace.

All of these photos make me sigh with happiness. And I love the idea of painting my bistro chairs a neon pink or green!

This place is adorable! I know how you feel, my husband and I feel torn between our love of the city and our love for living in the country. Ideally, we all need both!

I like the idea of spending the summer in that library room with nothing to do but read all those books!
I live in a house where I am happy and comfortable, we have a wonderful view of a mountain from our windows.
I feel lucky.

The wood looks so cozy! Love those wellies by the door.

oooh this is hard cause I love both.
I love being in the city and always having things nearby...but I miss where I come from. Cornfields as far as the eye can see and peaceful life.
I love the thought of a quiet little place to sit and crochet and have my little one grow and explore.

I think I need a vaca home ;)

Oh boy, Jeanette, that is a beautiful view, indeed:) I love mountains.

That is a lovely home. I used to be all about city life but now that I've moved into the burbs, I dont think I could ever go back.

I live in a 2-story home, which is very comfortable. We have the yard with the fruit trees and pecan trees. I'm happy but dream of a cottage with a porch by a pond. With my paddle boat.

Anonymous, I am not sure but I bet you can email the designer and ask for the floor plans: http://www.jhinteriordesign.com/tiny-house/

Hope that helps:)
