Every now and then, I get the itch to move. It can't really be explained. This urge has nothing to do with our current house, which I love and is perfect for us now. It's more about the hunt and the idea of starting fresh with a house. Talk to me one week, and I'm determined to move downtown. The next week, I'm set on the islands. It's a fun little game.
Wherever we end up, one thing is for certain. I will have open shelving in the kitchen. It's functional, really opens up a kitchen, and is an appealling alternative to heavy top cabinets. Would I recommend open shelving to pack rats and hoarders? Not likely. But for me? Perfection.
