As I was walking through our “fixer-upper” the other day and looking at the installed drywall (YES!! DRYWALL!! Eeeeppp!!) I suddenly realized that I haven’t shared a blog with you about where I pulled my inspiration for this home and what images are really inspiring us!! So, there’s no better time than now to do that!!
I spent A LOT of time on Pinterest (what would we do without it?!?!) … every single time I saw an image that spoke to me, I saved it to my “New Place Lovin” board, some photos I just saved to my phone as well … trust me, there were a TON of photos to scroll through and move forward with.
Alright, enough chit chat about how I found the inspiration … let’s get to the visuals!!! Below is a compilation of my favourite home inspo images … the only question here is … where do we begin?? Lol!
Let’s start with the exterior … I absolutely LOVE the cozy, cottage look of these exteriors and it’s no surprise that the white on white is calling my name!!!
Moving on to little Leos’s Bathroom inspo! I’m BEYOND excited about this space! He’s going to have his own space to grow up with, which I’m SURE he’ll appreciate when he hits his teen years!! But for now, I couldn’t be happier to have a dedicated spot to give him a bath!! One thing you’ll notice while scrolling through these photos is … COLOUR! That’s right, it’ll be different than what I’m used to but I’m eager to see how it turns out!! Also … check out the blue Moroccan tile in the bathroom … love it!!

Another room I’m REALLY excited about is the Laundry room …. I fell for this look, how can you not absolutely love all of the storage in this room PLUS the nice big farmhouse sink?! This is also another room that MAY have a little bit of colour … I know I may have to talk to the Toronto plumbers company to repair the water issues I have first but it will definitely be worthy, I highly recommend them, but if you live in the San Bernardino area my go to plumber in San Bernardino can be found at http://www.thompsonfamilyplumbing.com/san-bernardino-plumbers/.
And lastly, some guest bedroom inspiration!! When family and friends come to visit us I want to make sure they have a nice beautiful space to chill out, I always think to myself, if I were a guest in someone else’s home, what would make me feel the most comfortable?! And that’s exactly what I start looking for, such as a cozy yet bright space and of course, a relaxing ensuite! Below are a few ideas that are running around in my head …
Last but not least … my STORAGE INSPO!!! Seriously, you might think I’m weird but the thought of a home with a ton of storage makes me ridiculously giddy!! I like the fact that I don’t have to fight for space to store things such as jackets and boots and baking goods … oh man … I. CAN’T. WAIT.
There you have it! A little glimpse into my heart and future home … I can’t WAIT to give all of you an update on the progress, things are looking MUCH different than when I shared the “Jillian & Justin’s New Project” blog with you!! If you missed it and are curious to know what we started out with, take a look at it here!!
Stay tuned for more … until then, I’ll keep reminding myself that Rome wasn’t built in a day … LOL!!
