Dreaming Up My Dream House

I have a pretty vivid picture in my head of what my dream house looks like. It’s an old Craftsman-style bungalow that has been lovingly restored and decorated with an eclectic mixture of modern and classic furnishings. While I’ve never seen this house in real life, I know it exists out there somewhere.

Today I thought it would be fun to try and piece together my dream house in pictures by gathering some of the design ideas I’ve collected via Pinterest that capture my personal decorating style. So, here goes:

My Style: Exterior


My Style: Living Area


My Style: Kitchen


My Style: Master Bed & Bath


My Style: Guest Bed & Bath


My Style: Kids' Rooms


My Style: Mudroom


My Style: Backyard

I must say, these pictures are pretty darn close to what my dream house looks in my imagination. Now I just need to hunt it down and make it mine!

What about your dream house? Have you found it, or does it just exist in your head?

    I suppose I’ll live there with you… so long as it’s within a half-mile to a coffee shop, library, hike/bike trails, and grocery store. A golf course or trout stream within 15 miles would be a bonus.

    You didn’t show photos of your “guest quarters.” If Jason gets all of his wants too Adam and I will be frequenting Casa Groves for long weekends. :)

    … If no “guest quarters” then I call top bunk!

    The bunk beds and kids storage areas are great. It’d be perfect for the next house we have built. Where did you find the designs at?

    @Jennette: You’re right – your boys would LOVE those bunk beds! I found these photos via Pinterest. I’ll send you an invite to join!

  7. Oh, we’re birds of a feather, we are! :)

    My parents built their own home when I was just beginning high school and I would spend hours pouring over blueprint and home decor magazines putting together my dream home room by room based off of various blue prints! Each home had it’s own folder that was filled with the inspiration pics I found for each space.

    If only I had Pinterest back then! HA!

    Love your collection –
    I’m a big fan of the craftsman style homes as well!

    This is my dream house. everything about it. sometimes i get a little sad because my dream is just a dream. I have been working it seems forever with employers who think more about their pocket instead of paying their employees enough money to pay their bills so that they can follow their dream. Thank you for allowing me to see my dream.
