After living the past couple months in less than 1,000 sq. ft. in my parent's boathouse, it's made us both realize how we really don't need a lot of space. I used to think that I wanted a 4 bed, 3.5 Bath with office and two living spaces house. Well, that's just too much to clean! I really like the coziness of our place right now.
I have always loved craftsman bungalows and so today I just wanted to show you some of my dream spaces for our next place. I think a little bungalow would be just perfect for us!
Can I live here please!
Love the front landscaping. I like it when your flower beds look more wild than planned.
I could sit our here with some coffee for hours!
Love the yellow front door!
Love Love Love this!
Not only do I love the exteriors of craftsman bungalows with their big front porches and square columns, but the insides are to die for too.
The typical craftsman fireplace with built-ins on both sides and those little windows at the top. I am drooling on my keyboard right now.
I love painted built-ins and I must say these are some really well accessorized shelves.
Look, they are all ready for me to move in!
This is more original looking with all the dark wood. It's gorgeous but my personal preference is to paint it white to really lighten the space up.
Love Love Love! Very cute chalkboard wall. See with a bungalow, you can really have fun with bright colors and cottagey things. I love it!
I also love all the wainscoting and built-ins in Craftsman Bungalows.
Not to mention the stained glass.
Love the columns!
I really like all the white. I like how it keeps the vintage feel but makes it feel more modern.
With a bungalow, you really have to utilize all your space. These built-ins are great for storage and look awesome!
Now off to the kitchen:
This is my absolute favorite. I love these stairs and give me a farmhouse sink and I'm happy!
A more traditional craftsman kitchen. So cute! Love the old stove.
However, I am biased to a white kitchen. I love how clean and fresh it feels.
Gotta have some built-in seating in the kitchen. Great for family breakfasts or just chatting over a cup of coffee.
This is fabulous! Love the green cabinets and the bead board behind the glass fronts.
So, if you can't tell yet, I am obsessed right now with Craftsman Bungalows! And now I petition you to find me one in the Dallas area! I am not made of money so it needs to be affordable and it's okay if it needs some of my elbow grease. Comment if you know of anything!
