iCiNG mission this week was to write about our dream house...but i've had plenty of time to think about this one!
my DREAM house would be big, surrounded by trees & plants and have lots of room for friends & family to stay.
the kitchen would be HUGE with a bench in the middle, clever storage for everything, a water-recycling dishwasher!! great knives & useful contraptions so everyone could cook at once!
the kitchen sink would be those gorgeous HUGE chef sinks, & overlooking (& draining onto) my vege/herb garden; and a chicken coop.
i would have stereo’s in every room, including the toilet! & the whole place would be as eco-friendly as possible. I would capture my own water, & have tonnes of solar panels to get power.
not sure how viable this is though, due to having like a billion steros in each room?!Hmm...
every room would have a sunroof thingy, & lots of light can be let into every part of the house whenever we like. all the rooms would be soundproofed.
i would have a loft/attic room with a stained glass window (that I made!), a spare bed, full of fun toys & safe craft materials for my future children :)
the Lounge would be full of comfy old but refurnished armchairs & have no television, & a huge collection of books published by amazing people like Deepak Chopra, Sark, myself, and art by my current & future friends.
The house would be open plan with the kitchen/dining area (lots of table/chair space!) & there’d be a drumset & guitars & violins & tambourines – all sorts of instruments so friends can play along.
i would have a spare room for watching dvd’s/VHS on a white wall where pictures are projected. this room is FULL of mattresses, cushions, blankets, duvets, anything comfy to prop up on for viewing pleasure.
the toilet would be a gorgeous blue colour instead of boring white, have a claw-foot bath, i would paint murals on the walls & have tonnes of fluffy towels & Lush products stashed in the cupboards. There is frosted glass in the window next to the bath, so when you bathe you can hear the sounds of the birds & see the outlines of trees.
for some reason i really like doing laundry …in big laundry rooms… i think every female secretly has a chore she quite likes (my friend at work loves dishes!) so the laundry would be LARGE with a laundry chute pointing down from upstairs & be next to the sunroom so we can sun-dry our clothes. it’d have a lovely old washing machine & lots of wicker basket drawers beneath the bench for sorting.
the stairs would have a slide next to them, & a treehouse out in the backyard's biggest tree.
outside, (past the deck with a wooden love-seat & barbeque area) past the trampoline IN the ground & along a small secret winding path through the trees is a clearing.
A bath sits propped up in the clearing & we can light a fire underneath to heat the water, & bathe beneath the stars.
my kid’s rooms would be created by me, we would build them bunkbeds that look like castles or pirate ships & I would paint dinosaurs, butterflies & birds on the walls.
the master bedroom would be large but cosy, with an ensuite & a triple-king sized bed for ample cuddling space. It would be filled with things we love, art & crafts by friends & family and have a large mirrored wardrobe for storing stuff out of sight.
i think it was in that movie about greek God Odysseus? where his bed has a tree right next to it, upstairs like some crazy real awesome castle treehouse!
now that would be ideal, but I can imagine Autumn. Maybe get kind of annoying don't you think!?
i remember years ago in school I drew & planned out my Ultimate House while I was meant to be studying Social Studies & Classics... that's probably why I don't have my Greek-God-Facts quite straight!
have you guys ever thought about this?!
