Every now and then I’ll be searching the MLS or showing properties and come across a home that I just really want to buy. I want to update it, decorate it and move in. Obviously I am not in the market to move as I have only been in my current home for about 9 months and sadly I don’t have the money or time to buy every house I like!
I haven’t actually been inside this house but I’d love to be the one to sell it! Based on the MLS photos, I decided to whip up a little inspiration for you.. If you like what you see and feel my ideas, well then, let’s go take a look! SO without further ado, here is my vision for this home.
PAINT IT BLACK! Sorry for yelling, but wouldn’t it be cute with fresh black paint. If you want to go all out- a black metal roof would be amazing. Or at least black shingles and black metal awnings. I’d probably go with black windows but as you can see below, white would look just fine.
I’d take a cue from this stunning home and split the front room into two spaces.
I’d keep the wood fireplace but extend it to the ceiling with a simple white surround and have stacked wood off to one side and wood shelving to the other side.
Now that the dining is in the front room, turn this kitchen into a large modern space with french doors to the back yard.
Remove carpet and put in some lovely cement tile risers.
Add some interest with vertical paneling or maybe even painted wood on the ceilings.
Just look how pretty that bathroom could be!
This patio could easily be transformed with removing the carpet and finding some comfy seating.
Home is active on the market at the time of this post. If you read this at a later date, the home may be sold or off the market. Contact me to for more information or to find a similar home. All opinions are my own. And of course, there is nothing wrong with this house as it is.. I just got inspired to show what I would do.

Great post, Kristi! And I love the potential of this house!
Hey Kristi……got any good ideas for our bathroom? Would love to see them.
I would LOVE to help you with your bathroom.. maybe I need to put together a post with ideas! Although, whatever you come up with look great!
This is a lot of work but truly expresses your love of HOME. Such a talent to see the diamond in that little lump of coal.
