The BlogThis Challenge for the week is as follows:
If time/location/money/the rest of the world didn’t matter, where would you live? What would your house look like? Find pictures ofyour dream home. What would the rooms look like? How would you furnish them? is it a beach house? Mountainside? Huge backyard, or small courtyard? Farm or suburbia? Apartment overlooking the Eiffel tower or rustic farmhouse in Tuscany. Is there a tree with a swing on it? Do you have a fireplace, mantle covered in photos? Is it a morroccan themed home/asian? Minimalist/shabby chic? Design your perfect home for us. Find pictures online and dream away.
So I get to design my own home!
Location – I have always been a city girl and love it. So my home would be located in Sydney somewhere down in the Sutherland shire area with water views. Water views are very important. It doesn’t have to be a beach but a riverside view would do too.
The House – I grew up in an apartment and was perfectly happy with it. I have no problems with apartments except it’s difficult to keep dogs as pets. Hence, my dream home would be a house. I’d prefer a single level house made of red brick. I am a sucker for the red-brick look. It is an amazing and even elegant look if I may say so. Maybe something like this
The Interior – I am not too fussed about desginer stuff. It would be minimalistic in that I am not into flowery stuff or fluff. My house will have 3 bedrooms one with an ensuite, a living room, a dining room, a fabulous kitchen, a laundry, a patio at the back and one bathroom. One of the bedrooms will be my study/library. It will have my psychology books as well as my books on fiction and non-fiction. My furniture will be teak (or imitation teak) and the house will have floorboards.
