The house of my dreams
When I see my future home in my mind, the picture is quite clear of what I want it to look like, and what I want it to feel like.
I see a two floor house with a basement. Not to big, maybe 3 bedrooms or so. It should be rustic, in wood or a nice colored plaster, with big windows where I can sit on the windowsill and look out on the ocean. Of course we will have a sea lot or the ocean near by.
The kitchen is a very important room for me. I want a rustic ant countryside style with an kitchen island in the middle where the stove will be and also it will be a place for the family or guests to sit and chat while the food is cooked. The kitchen will be colored in tones of white mostly, and it has that coziness because I like to have stuff on the bench. Pasta, coffee or tea in tins of glass and the kitchen tools in pots next to the stove. A door out to the green garden and my garden where I grow herbs and vegetables is the top of it.
The master bedroom is the most important room, I care a lot about how things are where I sleep. I also like to read or chill out in the bed, I usually bring my laptop with me and lay on the bed writing. So a large bed is a must. Soft and fluffy pillows, blankets and bedsheets are important. The sheets must all be the same colours, and not much but black, white, beige and grey comes through my door. I do not want to much color in my bed! Walls can have color combined with a basic one, like cream. I also want my bedroom to get sun through the window in the morning so I can wake up more naturally. soft fabrics, curtains, pillows, blankets and some nice flowers will do the rest.
A large closet is probably in every woman's dream house. But for me it's not just for the space of my clothes, it's for the sake of my bedroom not to become messy! But of course I still like if all my shoes and ski wear will be able to show.
The living room will be an area of big cosy sofas, a fireplace lots of space for dinners and socializing. I also want a section built as a library with a comfortable armchair where I can wrap a blanket around me, grab a good book and just chill out. The colors will probably be white, black, brown and maybe blue, red or purple. Large windows will give the room a nice lightning in the day and when the evening comes there will be plenty of candles to lit.
There should also be a basement with laundry, guestroom, entertainment room, a place to meditate and I would love to have my own gym. A nice garden and a patio to hang out on is a must!
The feeling is most important
When you enter my home you will instantly feel relaxed and comfortable, that is the most important thing about a home if you ask me. It is cozy and welcoming to everyone and a lot of good food will be made and eaten in this home.
My dream home already exists and I hope that in 5 years time me and my family will live there.
