It’s Blog This time again. This weeks challenge has been lots of fun.. now if only I could actually live in my dream house!

Your dream home:

To our own personal ideal. If time/location/money/the rest of the world didn’t matter, where would you live? What would your house look like? Find pictures ofyour dream home.  What would the rooms look like? How would you furnish them? is it a beach house? Mountainside?  Huge backyard, or small courtyard? Farm or suburbia? Apartment overlooking the Eiffel tower or rustic farmhouse in Tuscany.  Is there a tree with a swing on it?  Do you have a fireplace, mantle covered in photos?  Is it a morroccon themed home/asian? Minimalist/shabby chic?

Design your perfect home for us.

Find pictures online and dream away.

Well, first things first, my dream house would be somewhere totally isolated, and somewhere really really beautiful. It would have rainforest views on one side and incredible ocean views on the other and our nearest neighbour would be miles and miles away. We would live somewhere warm – but not hot. And somewhere that always had a light wind so that we could always have our curtains blowing softly in the breeze. I would want to be able to hear the waves crashing on a nearby beach as I fell asleep at night, and I would want it to be warm enough to sit outside in the sunshine during the day but cool enough to sleep with a cozy doona at night.

Our dream house would be filled with cozy bedrooms so that no matter how many friends turned up at the same time everyone would always have somewhere comfortable and welcoming to sleep (the kids too!). We’d have lots of bathrooms so no one would ever feel rushed or crowded, and in every single room there would be somewhere really perfect to curl up with a good book and a glass of wine (or a cup of tea!). There would be LOTS of space for all my books and every single room would feel relaxed and cozy and happy.

We’d have a huge wooden deck looking out over the ocean with a massive square wooden dining table right in the middle where everyone could eat meals and watch the sun set. We would have a pool too, somewhere for the kids to have fun while the adults lazed the day away. On the deck would be a huge daybed filled with colourful cushions and there would be hammocks to enjoy the sunshine in.

The kitchen would be HUGE with heaps of bench space and room to really cook up a storm, there would be places to sit in there as well so that we could keep each other company while we cooked. We would have a huge walk in pantry for all our food supplies and alllll the gadgets that Luke wants to get that I won’t let him buy because we have no room.

In the backyard we would have a giant veggie patch with all sorts of wonderful things growing year round, including all sorts of fresh herbs. We would also have lots of fruit trees for making jam and chutney and flavoured iced tea.

Hmmm.. oh it sounds like heaven!

Here are some of my motivation pics













And P.S… there would be no mice!!
