Hello everybody, this is Rick from Your Modern Cottage.  This is the first time coming to you live in video format.  It’s time to get more personable.  Our lives have been turned upside down over the past few weeks as we deal with the COVID virus.  Most of us are working from homes and figuring out how to cope with life, family, and work, all under one roof – it’s been strange to say the least.  But, I know that from this challenge will come adaptation and hopefully change for the better.  

Our Homes Support Our Lives 

And now more than ever we are realizing that our homes support our lives.  They are the shelter that allow us to live in warmth and comfort. They are the spaces that allow us to gather and socialize with friends. And they are the rooms that allow us to share time with our family and build long-lasting memories.  Our homes are more than just buildings, they are the foundations of our lives, supporting all that we do and who we are. 

Plan Now for Future Projects

So, we think now is a good time to reflect on what’s working or not in your home. Even tackle some of those small projects that you’ve been waiting to do. Remember, you can still order online. And for now the hardware stores are still open. So, don’t feel “stuck” or frustrated right now. Go get to work.

Our Homes Matter, Design Matters

We started Your Modern Cottage because our homes matter. And how they are designed impacts all of us everyday. As a long-time residential architect, I know that design has the power to change our lives. I’ve seen it happen over and over again.  These changes happen at all scales and sizes, from master bathroom renovations that have literally saved marriages, to new beach homes where families have created legacies for generations to come. 

Inspire, Motivate, and Empower You

In the coming weeks, our group of experts will be here to share their knowledge and experience in their respective fields.  We want to continue to inspire you, motivate you, and empower you to get your home projects done or at least to plan now for those projects that you can do when the better times come. Our mission remains to help you transform your home into the one you have always dreamed about. 

Be sure to connect with us with emails, Instagram or Facebook. We’d love to hear your thoughts and ideas for future blog posts.  Be safe and stay healthy out there from all of us at Your Modern Cottage.
