So, a few developments since my last post about our future home: it isn’t happening for a while. Unfortunately, rent is going way, way, up right now. Like, $300 higher since the end of the year. And since we aren’t entirely sure what Robert will be doing over the summer, it seems really irresponsible to try and move right now when we don’t know what our income will be like in a few months. So, we’re going to wait. We haven’t yet decided if we will sign a 6 month lease or go month to month, but we won’t be moving at the end of April like we’d hoped.
Looks like my washer and dryer are going to have to wait…
But, just because we aren’t moving doesn’t mean I can’t dream about my future home. Out top picks for apartments for next month are the same picks even if we wait until October to move. Which means that I can still plan and design my new home.
Now, as picky as I am about the look of my kitchen, there isn’t much we can change when we move in. What you see is basically what you get. In my perfect world, and in the future home where I can design everything, it would have white cabinets and wood counters, like above. I can’t guarantee that’s what this apartment’s kitchen will look like, but that’s okay. I can decorate in other ways.
I’m lucky enough to actually own my own Scarlett like the one up there, and you best believe she’s the only reason there is any red in my kitchen. I bought the mixer in red on impulse, but I’m glad I did. It gives my otherwise bland kitchen some character. And since Robert really wants a teapot, I thought the red one above would be another great touch of color.
Computers and iPads and smart phones are everywhere these days, but that doesn’t mean I don’t appreciate my cookbook collection. And as a big fan of Joy the Baker, I still really want her cookbook.
I might not be able to choose my cabinets, but I can definitely get an island that fits my vision. This one is perfect, with the white legs and wood top, and the wood cutting board next to it would go perfectly as well.
So, what do you think? What would your dream kitchen look like?
