My dream, going-to-be home!

criterion 2: wood/ gray bricks

hey there! so uh, I've always been fascinated and excited about how my future's gonna be like. well I guess many people are, right? and I like to believe that it's gonna be a great one. and I know it'll be. cos I'm the one in charge of it (teehee!) and I'm painting it really lovelily..(haha is there even such a word? :p) but nevermind... moving on, here's a list of things of my preferences for my future home!

criterion 4: white

kids room? :)

criterion 7: cottagey/ villaish atmosphere

criterion 5: bright

criterion 1: spacious

this is..well I just like it, not too sure it's gonna be in my bathroom though.

criterion 2: wood/ gray bricks

criterion 9: verandah

criterion 4: white

criterion 3: big glass windows

So basically, my home is gonna be:

1) spacious
the ceiling must be so high that if a giant were to come to my house he wont have to break my rooftop garden

2) wood/ gray bricks
I like the idea of having a house that has the relaxing-holiday mood, but maybe I can deal with having this criteria only for my villa, cos you know, sometimes we need to have that stress level for us to keep striving for our best in work/ studies.haha

3) big glass windows
I like the sun, I want to enjoy the scenery from the comfort of my own home. I want the sun to shine into my house so maybe we can try to help the environment by saving energy during the day, right? :) but they'd have to be unbreakable! haha at least to a certain great extent.

4) white (mixed with gray, brown, pastel colours, dark green/ tosca, beige/ cream, light purple)
white always give the pure and artsy feeling, and it's perfect to be mixed with a more elaborate set of furniture. white is distressing for me too, I guess...?

5) bright
it has to be really bright for when I'm doing work or having house parties or whenever I feel like being shone upon (eg. when I just woke up in the morning) Wait, but sometimes I enjoy those romantic-dim-lights-you-just-feel-dreamy-and-sleepy kind of lights also! soo...oh well! My house's gonna have two sets of lights then. hahaha

6) piano
I love pianos (and other musical instruments), they give that instant boost on the elegance level and intelligence level of the house (yes, houses have different intelligence levels too!) and that sort of sophistication, yeay!

7) cottagey/ villaish atmosphere
complete with open air spaces, if possible with the big green wide lawns, where we can run around or lie down at night to enjoy the starry sky.

8) library/ study
I must have this, with the ladder to climb also (umm..maybe that's a little to much.hello this is a HOUSE not a school or public library. get real!)

9) verandah
I would revive the English culture of having afternoon tea with my family whenever we can. Maybe once a week at least? and I'd like to sometimes have breakfast at the outdoors, enjoying the weather, and our beautiful garden as well.
10) dance studio
if I have a daughter/s, she/they'll attend ballet classes and they can practice at home to. or if they've become teenagers, they can practice for their performances in the studio as well. I have always had a passion for dancing, and I think I'll always have it until a very very very long time. So, whenever I'm free, I'll come here to learn some steps and keep the good posture. yup!

These pictures are some of others' homes I found online, and I think the interior designers are really cool. I love them. They give me ideas of what I really want for my own house. Maybe they can be your inspirations too? Anyway, enjoy!
