I love the idea of our homes being our "perfect nests," where we can rest, play, socialize, create, and just be ourselves!
Check out this great blog about how to put the best of the design strategies and building technologies available today for creating a home environment that nurtures healthy, comfortable, enjoyable lifestyles.
In the end, its not the granite countertops or whatever the feature "du jour" that makes us happy - it is well-designed and thoughtfully constructed living spaces that are conducive to our particular needs, wants and dreams!
The Perfect Nest- A Quick Fly-By
What comprises the “perfect nest”? (Baby Boomers take note!)
While reviewing Mark Nepo’s The Book of Awakening forwww.WhiteHair365.com I found an interesting answer and perspective.
As a REALTOR® I love the idea of excellence in the properties I represent – those of enduring excellence that incorporate universal design elements so valuable to Baby Boomers. So Nepo’s reference to what really works perfectly (the “perfect nest”) intrigued me. He wrote,
“It was a very small thing, watching a robin carry a twig too big for its nest. It tried once, then twice, to use it, and somehow, with its very small bird brain, it knew it was no good. It simply flew off and picked another.. . .So often what we want is like that twig [and we]…hold on to something that can’t complete our nest….”
How does this vignette translate to fine living, luxury abodes and the perfect nest for you and me?
It could mean careful consideration of the building strategies that can make your perfect nest a comfortable, healthy and efficient place in which you and your family not only can take pride. . .but (fondly) can nestle…Finding something that “fits" is a smile on the face of pure possibility.
