My Dream House

I happened upon the most perfect house today.
Just look at it! (sigh).

I LOVE the way the carriage house-style garage is positioned in relation to the house.
Almost like so that they can each admire each other from where they both sit.
I also love the w i d t h of the front steps. They conjure up images of BIG family get-togethers, where wide front step come in handy because everyone is trying to rush in, all at the same time.
Both new and old landscaping frames out the place perfectly. I’d spend hours on that porch watching the treetops blow in the breeze…just me, Mr.Right and a huge glass of Countrytime…extra sour.

And when it rained, I would get cozy here, with an old quilt, my laptop and my Maximus.

I would be so distracted from my laptop though…I mean, look at this place. (sigh)

Simple things, like the tone and way they laid the bricks on the fireplace could capture my attention for days. The wire obelisk planters to the left and right of the fireplace are sooo Linda Woodrum. They would make my heart sing everytime I looked at them!
Linda used them to the left and right of the TV in this house:

She always finds the best accessories. When I grow up I want to be Linda Woodrum.


The Dining Room is now featured as my background wallpaper on my computers desktop.

Everything about this room appeals to me.

The gracefully curvy seagrass dining chairs, that perfectly fit underneath the gorgeous smokey-blue colored dining table.

The row of clean-lined, antique-style pendant lanterns are incredibly divine, and their muted tone couldn’t be any more perfect for the space. Black ones would have been too heavy-looking, and whoever chose these lights deserves a huge hug! :-)

The built-in plate rack/hutch piece of furniture is one of my favorite things in this whole house.

And by displaying octagon-shaped white plates, the hutch instantly has a more updated feel. Clean-lined and Traditional with a Contemporary twist…my favorite!

The angled ceilings in the Master Bedroom really give this space a comfy-cozy feel.

The teeny-tiny windows on each side of the bed add a bit of whimsy and maximize the amount of natural light that floods this room. The one on the left side of the bed would perfectly light up the pages of a book, while reading in that luscious creamy wing-back.

The use of “nightstand slipcovers” is very interesting to me. It seems as though the designer must have very intentionally wanted to soften all the hard edges in the room, and there is something very peaceful about the way it looks and feels because of his/her attention to details like these.

The transom window and pocket door in the Master Bathroom are also little details that would never go unnoticed if I were fortunate enough to call this place home. The Moroccan Star hanging lantern in the water closet is an unexpected and delightful touch. What a clever choice! Positioning the deep soaker tub under the window, between the two sinks gives the space such a wonderful focal point and creates such amazing symmetry. The shape and thickness of the sinks even mimic that of the tub….genius!

Thanks for sharing these photos Daisy!

This is truly my dream house.

Maybe one day….(sigh)
