We were so good at imagining things when we were children. But as adults, we forget that imagination continues to shape our lives and everything we do. It inspires world-changing social reform and art, to scientific innovation and dance moves that future generations will make fun of. Imagination is a tool. It can help you plan not only for your dream home, but also your dream life.
Your Dream Home Vision
If you’re building something, you need a clear vision of the end result or you might not like the final design. Of course, it doesn’t always work this way. For example, some scientific discoveries were happy accidents. But vision is important if you’re planning a future home. Overall, reflecting on what you’re looking for will help you narrow down the search.
Home Sweet Home
What does home mean to you? It can be hard to define, but it’s the place we belong and return to. You can make a house hunter’s bullet point list, or write a long-form narrative.
Get beyond the ideal number of bedrooms and bathrooms. People live in all kinds of spaces, from floating homes to luxury condos. What’s your lifestyle like? Do you picture yourself in a rural farm-to-table community, or do you want to see the bustle of a city from your balcony? Do you need a backyard for future children? Or would you like to be able to walk to yoga and your favorite cafe on Sunday mornings? Your dream home is crafted around what you value most.
