It's actually really interesting. I go through the pictures I have stored away about once a year and it's really cool to see how my preferences have changed and how my ideas have evolved over time.
If you have any suggestions, lovely pictures of your own, or links please don't be shy.
Today's update will just be assorted things that I thought were neat but that would not fit into my dream home. I just couldn't leave them out though!
Be warned. This will be ridiculously long.
How gorgeous is this. I would absolutely love to even see a glimpse of this house. This is my fairy tale home with the wild garden. Heavenly
The way the outside makes its way in is lovely. I think I'm a fan of the dark flooring.
This is just awesome. I would buy this pattern and use it for bed linnens or wrapping paper.
I don't really know what to think of this is but it certainly caught my eye
I admit it. I'm a sucker for tall windows. But, I also like the idea of sitting in here barefoot, reading, tapping my feet against the textured brick floor.
While the light can stream in, I think I would also feel rather exposed with so much window...also, how do they wash them all!?
Two different types of cool chairs
I like to have kitchens and bathrooms be quite lean when it comes to cabinetry and visible knick knacks. I don't like modern designs as I find them too sterile. I did enjoy both of these though.
Some cute chairs made of material for out of doors.
You know me and circular windows.
Not a fan of most mod furniture but check this little chair out. He's so unobtrusive. You could just sit him anywhere and he'd blend right in.
I would really like this book. I like the levels apparent in the picture but I don't think I'd be able to love that wall of urns.
A neat coffee table book that I would love t own
There is really no place for this lovely bench in my dream home but it's amazing. Look at the feet!
Another lovely print from One Kings Lane:
I think these are royal chairs. A few centuries old? Chairs have become much more comfortable since then.
Some glamourous yet quite bare bathrooms. I love the deep bath tubs.
Just browsing some kitchens. Originally I thought that a pale buttery yellow would be the way to go. But the longer I think on it, the more I think a light blue would look nicer. I think I would keep the breakfast niche in the same shade group but in yellow.
Mr Carter always seems to pull it off effortlessly.
These are some amazing lighting designs that I stumbled across a few years ago. I think my heart would burst with joy if I could ever use them.
Check these out. SOOOOOo cool.
Some designs that are neat but that I would probably never use myself:
Mmmm lovely gorgeous clean stairway to heaven.
I have come across this picture SO many times and dismissed it each time. But, after the 10th time I decided it was cute enough, even just for the cat, to keep this picture.
Some more really cool architectural designing going on:
This is luxury in a staircase.
I thought this was a neat little couch for those rooms where you get a really odd angle. Could be useful.
This room just awes me. I could just stare at it for ages.
Fairy Princess bedroom:
Imaginary, fantasy pond:
Beautiful. I'm becoming more and more appreciative of this kind of decoration.
This chair is so weird nowadays. But back in the old days this chair would have been prime realestate! The hood and wings would keep out drafts and could also shield it's occupier from overheating when not facing the fireplace.
Very cool but I think I'd be too energetic all the time. I like to nap on my couches.
I found the ship chandelier again!
A luxury bathroom.
I can't help it. I think I actually love this kitchen just for the lemon trees and the natural light.
Check these out:
A super fancy super old castle turned hotel. If I were to downsize this for my dream home I'd have to get rid of the painting over the fireplace for sure.
I think a part of me Really loves the idea of a black bedroom. It's sexy, it's chic. It's easy to sleep in. But it's easy to sleep-in. Also, can you imagine having a bad day or bout of depression in that room?:(
I love these colour combos. Not quite brave enough to try them but I still love them.
It's interesting, I dress in jewel tones every day but I don' t think I'd have the daring to dress my home in them. Neutrals and rosy colours for my dream home.
Look at this lovely design on the flooring!
The green house:
Apparently a gypsy house:
I love these pools. They're amazing:
This is really cool. Not sure where or when I'd use it, but look at that!
Like the protagonists just haven't arrived yet.
Like temperature sensitive tiles.
Oh, Mr. Carter. You have me under your spell.
Another hidden bed! complete with lovely storage.
Well if you made it this far you may need eye transplants. That was a ridiculously long post.
For my next post I'll endeavour to pare down my submissions. And I'll limit them to one room only. Wish me luck!
