Do you ever wonder how your home might look if you were able or forced (God forbid) to start over? Would you use the same color scheme? Select the same style of furniture?
Maybe I’d want a two-story home with shutters, like the San Marino, Father of the Bride house (Nancy Myers)
When attending wedding showers I’ve seen some of the items registered for and thought, ohhh, those are pretty colors for a kitchen, I like these pots and pans, what a great pattern for everyday dishes.
To that end, here’s some fantasy rooms and details that I’ve admired and thought would be lovely in a “second” home.
I imagine I’d still want a cottage…
I think a fountain to greet visitors as they enter might be a nice touch…
Beams would be a definite bonus…
Bunny Williams likes beams too…
Barn doors would be wonderful…not sure where these would go but I’ve seen them on several fabulous houses and I love the way they look.This kitchen pretty much has it all, beams, a great chandelier, a fabulous stove, lamps on the built-in buffet.
Luxe and Lillies
A welcoming room to rest my head.
I’d definitely want an indoor laundry room, as opposed to one housed in the garage—may be a California thing.
While I’m dreaming why not throw in a greenhouse?
…and I’d drive this car…not really, I’m not a convertible kind of girl, but boy is it pretty!
Okay, now you know my fantasy house, what would yours include. Honest, this is just for fun. I’m very content with my home and I love my life…but its fun to pretend sometimes.
