We too are new empty nesters and have sold the bigger house and garden. We're looking at buying a smaller home with a garden size where we will actually enjoy doing the work as opposed to feeling we're going to have a heart attack keeping up with the maintenance. As we've decided this will be our 'last' house we're thinking whatever we buy will no doubt have walls knocked out to make rooms that will flow well instead of worrying about whether it has enough bedrooms for 'resale'. The kids will need to worry about that when the time comes!

Sounds like a good plan, bricksmum! My parents did the same thing - sold the big house and garden and bought a renovator's dream with a small garden in a happening suburb where they can walk to cafés, movies and restaurants. They love being out in the garden now, and are so glad they made the move - they have so much more time to do things they love rather than chores. They worried about resale somewhat when they were renovating, but I tried to encourage them to do whatever made it a happy home for them. They deserve it!

Joanna: Lovely article. The photo of the entry hall with the Zuster cabinet is so colorful and fun. It is so nice to see flowers as you enter a home. It gives such a feeling of welcoming. The Missoni fabric on the Mademoiselle chairs is also so pretty and splashy! Thanks also for including our work in your article.
