Modern and Rural

I have a client that lives in the city with her husband and 3 kids. Although they love their house and neighborhood, they lack one major element: a backyard. They need a place where they can let the kids run around, play sports, have people over for cookouts, and most of all: some room to breathe.

They are looking at farm land to buy for a 'getaway' retreat... so naturally we've already started brainstorming. Their style is

modern

, funky, and fun! (Atleast it's fun for

me

.:)

After our talk last week I wanted to send her some pictures that I thought were inspiring, but hey- why not share them with you too?

I am

loving

this simple kitchen. I thought I was over my concrete phase but my heart skipped a beat when I saw this picture---- I guess that means I relapsed.

After scrolling through all of these pictures I found myself taking a deep, long breath.

I guess that means we've successfully found our inspiration.

(You should try it too)

Happy Tuesday.
