Back when I was a single gal dreaming of owning my own home, I used to imagine what it would look like. I always thought it would look like an Anthropologie store…more or less. You know – all artsy and feminine. Now that I actually own my own home, I’m not totally sure why my house looks so…well, normal. Although, it probably has something to do with not wanting to embarrass my son when his friends come over since Anthro stores can be a bit over the top. I still can dream, though. Want to dream with me?
In my dream house I would have this bed. I love this bed. I’ve big fat loved this bed for years. Yes, it’s $1500, and yes, it’s a little over the top, but we’re dreaming here. Remember?
I’d probably add this floofy fluffy white bedding. Doesn’t it look like a cloud? All feminine and dreamy-like?
And may I tell you how much I love this Astrid Chair? I even love the name. And are you noticing that absolutely nothing in my house even remotely resembles the style of this chair? Hmmm, makes one think.
I want one of these letters that I talk myself out of every time I visit Anthropologie because they’re $28. Were they $18 each I would have done it, but that extra $10 is a deal breaker for some reason – which ironically I’ve probably spent over and over again at Starbucks or McDonalds. Go figure.
For my kitchen I want these fancy measuring spoons that would make me smile each time I used them.
Same with this adorable milkmaid butter dish. Oh c’mon. The cuteness is killing me.
And I seriously want to eat off of these dishes…or maybe even just lick them.
And after dinner I’ll retire to the study where I’ll light a few candles…
Sip some tea…
And read Sense and Sensibility…or just gaze at its darling cover.
Ahhh…isn’t it fun to dream.
What would you have in your dream house?
