Dream Home Daydream

Wednesday, April 24, 2013

Hello hello!  I hope this Wednesday finds you well.  I thought we'd taken a little stroll through my dream home daydreams today.  Come along, won't you?

Public Service Annoucement:  If you want to pin any of the following photos, great!  I'm so glad we have similar tastes.  Just please click on the photo to be taken to Pinterest and re-pin from there, where it is linked to the original source.  I would hate for someone to follow your pin back to here and then have to follow a mile long link trail to get to the source!  Thanks a millz.

Number 1:  I want to live on the water.  Well, the hubs does and I go along with it because really, who doesn't want to live on the water?

Number 2:  I must.have.shingle.siding.

Le sigh.

Gray siding + aqua front door + stone patio = perfect combination.

Number 3:  It would be a plus if my dream home had a barn-shaped roofline.

Oh, and if it came with a perfectly manicured garden, I wouldn't complain.

Number 4:  In addition to the shingle siding and the barn-shaped roofline, it would also probably have a turret...

(The rounded porch is just a bonus.)

The outdoor fireplace on that front porch is fantastic.  Can't you just imagine sitting there year-round, sipping some coffee or cocoa, and curling up with a good book?  Wowza.

Now this one has to be my favorite.  It's smaller, with TWO turrets, a big front porch, and pitched rooflines.  Oh, and it's on the water.  I don't think it gets any better than that.

Number 5:  Moving past the exterior of the house, I'm sure the inside would have some sort of cool staircase.  I don't know why, but I'm obsessed with unusual stairs.

(By the way, I didn't pin any of the following photos specifically for this post... they already lived on my boards.  #staircrazy)

See what they did there?  Spindle shapes created by the negative space between those flat boards.  Brillz.

The harder it is to get up and down them, the more likely I am to love them.

Reading nook on the landing... absolutely!

It's a tunnel.  Under the stairs.  I die.

Whoever thought of this should get a Nobel Prize for space planning. #ihatewastedspace

We're going to live on the water, so why not have boat cleat railings?

Number 6:  My dream home would not be complete without a laundry/mud room combination, seeing as how we have neither now.

Number 7:  Onto the kitchen.  It will have a farmhouse sink.

Wow, this window...

Those are my top 7 must-have items for my dream home.  What are yours?
