Real Estate Junkie: My Dream Home



Hello Loves,

I hope you had an amazing weekend and are having an amazing week. Tomorrow I actually start a creative writing challenge and, my other 30 day challenges I will talk about that in one of my blog posts so, make sure you follow me to be able o see all of m new posts. Today I got stung four times by wasps and, my hand is having a bad reaction it is swollen and hurts like a mo-fo... I am trying to write with both hands and, I'm like naw bro what are you doing. Trying to push through it for you all so, I can get all my posts up this week. Fingers crossed tomorrow the swelling goes down.Well, it is the next day swelling has gone down and, I can actually type with both hands. Yesterday I went on Pinterest and went to town pinning what I want in a dream home. I have traditional taste mixed with modern take. I like British country, traditional French, a touch of modern and, earthy mix when I looked back on my Pinterest Pins. This taste in a home does not surprise me and, I would say is extremely accurate. When I imagined my home I always thought of it to be a warm inviting place where my friends and family could spend a magical summer. I want nooks of the house where you can get lost in a book, a room filled with thousands of books and, places that bring out the child within all of us. Seems like a beautiful place to live in my mind. I want a light airy flow to the house and, for it to also, have a homey warm vibe, like the kind most people get on Christmas. I do not want the house to be so big that I wouldn't want to live there but, I also, don't want it to be too small that I would not be able to have lots of guest. Looking at the pictures on pinterest I think I have created m dream home. Of course, at the moment I wouldn't be able to live on my own let alone this large however, I am manifesting my dream of someday creating or owning a home just like this one. I will take my favorite pictures and they will comprise my dream home.

The Home:
By now I am sure you have concluded that I like unique ways of having or doing... For that reason I absolutely hate cookie-cutter houses an, the Stepford creepy neighborhood where all the houses look different. I want my home to warm inviting view from the driveway when you are driving up. Imagine driving up to find trees to the right an left of you and, you can see a peak of the house through them. These are the three was I imagine the drive up to look like.

          












     





Which one do you like the most or would want to pass through when entering a friend/family members' driveway. Now that we have moved through the driveway we have a house to see starting with the exterior.

Elton Hall is a baronial hall in Elton - Cambridgeshire. It has been the ancestral home of the Proby family since 1660.




Belton House | Carolean architecture is England's only true vernacular style since the Elizabethan days.:


Each of the exterior fronts of the homes provide different aspects of the home I would like. The first exterior is probably about the size I would want my house to be I also, like the warm, light country vibe it gives off. the second exterior shot is a bit creepy but, if you just focus on the ivy and, door those are the traits I love. The third house although very large, and not light gives me great architecture and a powerful feeling when approaching the home. As to stick to being unique I would want my home to create a presence that is welcoming yet, stunning when approaching it. I also, don't want it to look brand new I want it to show some history airing an idea of creating great memories when inside if the home.  What do we always want to do on a sunny day or warm night our family usually has dinner or breakfast on our porch; it is where I go to read, listen to music and, just enjoy the day. Let's see what my front porch might look like..

Now that I have a place to drink my smoothies and, enjoy my company let's head for the door. Each door brings it's own feeling to me as I imagine opening it. Picture yourself entering my house which door do you feel is the right fit. I was particularly hard to chose a front door because it really defines your home.



A Fabulous Front Door for Fall:

I love these doors.  Close just the bottom in the spring and fall and feel the…:
dream house: the front door.:


Lets start with door number one it is charming and inviting with a structure build to fit the house. The second door is quaint and, a door you would find in an old country home. I enjoy this door not only because it is split but, because it has a magical aspect not unlike the door you would find to the cottage of Sleeping Beauty. The last door is chic, sleek and, modern. It still gives of an inviting older asethic and, has plenty of light to bring into the house.

We are going to make our way to the kitchen as it is one of my favorite rooms of any house and, where families tend to find themselves spending the most time. There is one design of the kitchen I am enthusiastic about and, you will see why.

Love the wall of windows in this loft home in Amsterdam (via dustjacket attic):


We will start with the second kitchen because I have an idea for the first and last kitchen. Beautiful light airy country kitchen with a large sink. It is simple and stays with a modern yet, English country theme. The first and lat kitchens are by far my favorite especially the last one. They are modern, rustic and, edgy. The most drawing part of the kitchen are the windows in which I would want to combine the full wall windows with the partial round window in the first picture. I really foresee that 
to be a stunning kitchen. Outside of the kitchen I would like a garden since the kitchen has such amazing views.

Wow! Could camouflage get any better than this? Garden with secret door. Secret Garden.:  
I would love to have a secret garden just outside of my kitchen. The mystery continues are we walk our way unto the other parts of my garden be prepared I have a lot of pictures and ways I want my garden to be.

Another type of sanctuary...one doesn&#39;t need to be here physically to enjoy it. It takes only a deep relaxation to fly to this place and forget whatever can be bothering us....

Hedge Arches-I think this would be so cool if I had a HUGE garden. Then I&#39;d have a maze for photos
beautiful maze♡ 
Those pots are fabulous. More 


Wow that was a long walk so glad we found our way out of the maze now, we can take a dip in the pool before we head back for the house. I don't know if I would ever have a backyard big enough to accommodate all of those garden and, secret doors but, if I ever do that would be amazing. Let's go for a nice soak in the hottub and then cool off with a shower. 

wood burning hot tub This is so awesome! Not only are they less expensive to purchase and maintain than your every day hot tub they are also much more fun. Very fitting for a country home setting :-)

  Lets make our way into the sunroom or conservatory for a sip of tea and, a snack. 
Sun Room - Instead of covered patio can we/should we consider a sun room?
 I love this idea not only because it's fabulous but, it is beautiful to sit in and, enjoy a book or snack with family or, friends. I have not completely decided what living room would be best which is why I am leaving that out for now. We will head into the library and dining room, then finish with the master bedroom/bath.

Okay this is a personal dream of mine! Oh my goodness double story library, gorgeous family room, and grand piano?! Yeah!:

TheFullerView-Landing Library.:


I think a library however, big or small is extremely important to have. I have a very small library in my room where I have a selection of books that I thoroughly enjoy reading or I am waiting to read them.

How lovely are all of these dining rooms! I enjoy the feeling of each one although they are all different from each other. I do not know which one I love the most because each of them have there own unique style. The chairs in the second picture look super comfy! Oh, the master bedroom I am so torn between styles which you will see from the pictures.

 Lets head into the bathroom where I would be getting ready and, maybe filming some YouTube videos in.

Please let me know if you want to see more posts like this because I can do my dream cabin, summer home etc..

Have an enlightening and adventurous day,
