House Goals | Alfresco Living
I mean goals here in the literal sense (as opposed to the Instagram catch-phrase, 'brunch goals,' 'dog goals,' 'vacation goals"....). Pretty much any self-help author will tell you that it is paramount not only to set goals, but to set specific goals with a deadline. A goal shouldn't be "I want to make more money," but rather, "I want to be making a $100k salary exactly one year from today."
I think it's the same with our houses. I think we should be so specific with what we want that we can see ourselves walking through the front door and into the kitchen where our prized La Corneu stove awaits us.
I don't think this is mutually exclusive with loving the house you have. So today, as for my own house goals, it's all about outdoor living. Whenever I imagine a perfect life with perfect friends, and a perfect meal, it invariably takes place out of doors.
