Designing the Right Home for Your Family
I don’t know why, but when I blog, I feel like I need to explain my thought process. Instead of just posting the blog, I like to go into detail and introduce why I’m blogging about a certain topic. I think this is a quirk specific to me… I’ve read many post that are just “here’s the article.” Maybe this quirk stems from being a fiction reader, I’m used to following a plot. There is a beginning, a body and an ending and they all follow a path. Blogging isn’t normally like that. Blogging is more similar to journalism, I guess. Anyway…
I’ve been tossing around the idea of blogging about home trends to suit specific times in our lives. How an empty nester’s home will differ from a couple just starting out. On the surface, it may seem that the same house would work for either of these couples. In both cases it is just 2 people; however, their needs are very different. After thinking some more, I came up with the idea of doing a series of blogs for each generation. This led to research about the different generations… Did you know there is a generation between the Greatest Generation and the Baby Boomers Generation aptly named the Silent Generation? Or that the latest generation (born since 2000) are known as the Always-On Generation or Gen AO?
Wikipedia has a great page about the various generations. They go into depth about personality traits of each generation and why these traits are believed to be exhibited. Very interested read. Click here to read more.
So to end this transitional introductory blog, that is really not necessary… I will be blogging about home designs and trends for each generation.
