My Perfect Future House

The older I get, the more I think about the future. I think about my idea of the perfect house that I can see my children growing up in. I imagine what I believe to be the layout, the interior and the decor.

When you look back to when you were younger, there is always one house in your childhood that stands out more than the rest. Whether it be the house you stayed in longest, had the fondest memories or maybe you've always lived in the same house. Either way, it's usually the house that when you think back, you can remember every single detail. You can remember the design of the wallpaper in each room, the layout of the furniture, the colour of the windows and doors. 

So, as I am growing up, I like to imagine how I can create this perfect house for my children to remember. I think of all the details I remember from my childhood house and try to focus on them. 


The Garden


When I think of my ideal house, I imagine a large grass garden. I imagine a swing set with a slide, a trampoline and plants. I imagine wooden decking with a rattan style table and chairs where I can imagine making fond memories with the kids while they play on the toys and I sit watching them with a cup of tea in hand. I imagine folding doors that join the wall between the garden and the kitchen so when the sun shines, it shines through the windows, casting shadows on the walls. 

The Kitchen


I fondly remember baking in my childhood kitchen with my Mum. I remember where everything was in each cupboard and where the appliances were all situated. 
When I imagine my future kitchen, I imagine it to be bright and light. I imagine black counter tops with white tiles and a black gloss backsplash. 
I can imagine flour scattering the kitchen sides while baking biscuits or a pile of mixing bowls and wooden spoons stacked besides the sink. 

The Living Room


The living room is the room I struggle with the hardest to imagine. It'll probably be the busiest room in the house. It'll be where we sit together and watch movies as a family with popcorn and sweets. It'll be the place where birthday cards will scatter the shelves and the Christmas tree will take pride of place in a corner. 
Despite all of these ideas, I still struggle to imagine the layout. I find it hard to imagine what colour the sofa will be, where the sideboard will sit, how the TV looks. 

Because I just can't seem to imagine what I want, I decided to have a look around and see if I could find anything that I felt was needed for my future living room. 
Firstly, I searched sofas and believe I would like a large, grey corner sofa. 
Secondly, I decided that I would love for the colour scheme to be teal and grey. 
Thirdly, I needed to find the perfect windows for the room as I always imagine a bright, spacious room. I found some amazing window special offers which I thought would be the perfect final touch to my perfect future living room.

 Although my ideas may not be for everyone, I would love to be able to create memories in what I believe to be the perfect home to raise my children. 

Did you have a favourite house growing up?
