Day 16

My Dream Home

Well I hope that everyone has had a great Tuesday! I am still recovering from surgery and decided I would make by first outing by myself to get the DVD I told you about earlier, well that was a bad idea! It wore me out and I have been absolutely useless today. I plan on laying in bed the rest of the evening. I am sure I will keep myself busy by catching up on the DVR and reading the large stack of magazines I picked up today during my outing. :)

I am very excited to share my dream home with all you sweet blogging friends! This is a topic very near and dear to my heart, I was an architectural major for about a year until I decided that I did not want to move away from home for several years. I started designing homes on my computer around the age of 12 and just fell in love with it. I may possibly do it on the side one day since I have such a passion for it. I love everything about architecture and design. I love driving around looking at homes, especially when I am in a new city. 

I was very fortunate to grown up in a beautiful cedar and stone house in the Tennessee mountains. The house sits on 6 acres so I had plenty of room to run and play with no neighbors in sight. I still live at home and hate to leave because I love my home and its location.  My passion for homes tends to make me not settle on one particular style. I love many different styles of homes. 

Here are a few of my dream homes...

I love all of the styles and it would just depend on the location as to which one I would choose. 

Some important features inside are...

A large kitchen

I couldn't find a picture I liked so I used pictures of my friend's kitchen in Texas. It is absolutely beautiful. It has two large islands, hidden sub zero refrigerator and freezer and a beautiful granite sink. 

A few other things I love...


Media Room

Large back porch/ veranda

Outdoor Kitchen w/ bar

and last but not least...
A beautiful pool!
I love having a pool at our house! A pool will be a must when I have children of my own!

I apologize for the long post but I warned you that I love houses! I dread the day I have to sit down and start making decisions on exactly what I want!
I hope you have a great evening!

You know I always wanted to design my own home someday, but after looking at your inspiration photos I think I've changed my mind- I should just hire you to do it!

Love ALL the photos!
