A lot of wonderful things are happening to me these days. A blessing baby is on his way and with it the need for a bigger house. So we just purchased a house with this incredible view of New York City in New Jersey. This view is in every floor of the house. This may be the only perfect thing about the house since there are many things to be updated. Walls will come down, kitchen will be completely redone, floors will be refinished. I decided to make it fun and I'll be posting every milestone.
Here I decided to take down half of the wall so we can appreciate the beautiful view from the kitchen, while leaving some countertop space. The wall behind also will come down.
Here, all cabinets and appliances have been teared down.
I am convinced that our surroundings influence our beings and if we put in our homes only what we love based on comfort and functionality beauty will reveal itself. After all, having a warm, comfortably functional and beautiful home to come back to at the end of a long and hectic day, is what we all covet. A happy home which should render us with either a sense of comfort or reward at the end of our busy days.
