Inspiration Shopping...

Before kids Tony and I loved to go through open houses. It didn't always mean we were looking to move, just looking for inspiration! This weekend inspiration was needed. I feel like I've been in a slump and I needed to walk through a "perfect" home decorated by a designer where cost was not over looked. Charter Homes did not let us down.

This video is 6 minutes long. The builder and the stylist walk you through the home and explain the details of construction and planning, even down to the choices for paint and lighting. It was just the inspiration we needed! You can see more video's here.

We are in love with the front door and the side porch of this home. When you walk through their home's one room flows into the next! There was no detail over looked. I am foreseeing Sunday open house's becoming a regular outing for awhile again.

Where do you go inspiration shopping?

When can I move in? Love the open space and the color choices. A porch is always a great addition to any home. Ah to dream! :) Best wishes, Tammy

This is wonderful. We used to go to open houses and Parade of Homes. There is a lot of great ideas in them. It is always a relaxing way to spend a Sunday. Thanks for stopping by.

Hi Wendy,

I wanted to say hi and thank you for your recent visit to my blog! I'm so excited that you're also going to Relevant; I hope we get to meet. I am really looking forward to the conference; I just know God is going to show up in a big way.

Since you mentioned you have a 13 year old daughter I wanted to invite you to check out my other blog, based on the club I started for my daughter. I'm just getting it going but we're excited to be able to offer articles that are relevant to other teen girls and their moms.

I just love looking at houses, and the one you showed is amazing. Wow, it's gorgeous!!

Hope you're having a super day,
