{my dream home would have to have...}

Have you ever said that to yourself? 'My dream home would have to have' ... fill in the blank. Well, I've said this statement time and time again, after all it's always fun to dream. So today, I'm thinking ...


Domino and Penguin Books

A reading room with wall to wall bookcases that wrap over the doorway! My all time biggest bookcase wish is built-ins around the door. And a ladder would just take it to the next level {no pun intended!}.





Lovely! I think framing a doorway with bookshelves adds drama and takes your eye up the wall, not to mention its a great way to use normally unused space! I adore being surrounded by books so this one is on my personal wishlist for sure. What's on your dream home must-have list?

Lovely! my dream home has way too many things to count..dark floors, big windows black doors...endless. I have a whole folder full of wishes.

What a lovely colletion of photos! We are considering using our living room as a den - since we rarely use the space. My dream home inspirational files continues to grow -

That looks lovely and while I would love to have that room as well, mine is pretty simple. A Fireplace:)

I agree, and I'm not even a huge reader! That second photo is so great...love the use of that entire wall.

Oh me too- would love to have a room that I could dedicate to floor/ceiling bookcases- so charming and chic all at once.

My list is very, very long...but bookshelves is definitely high up on the list! So is a great front door and entry both outside and inside...it sets the tone for the whole house so I don't want to compromise on that when the time comes! (We'll see if my wallet agrees with that statement :))

Yes on the books and the floor to ceiling bookcases. When I moved to BC from Ontario I gave away ALL my books since you pay by the pound. I'm slowly building up the collection again. I love them...for reading and decorating.

I am so with you on this one...(too!)

Mine is an amazing view from the front door right through huge windows in a sunken living room to water - a lake, a river, an ocean, doesn't matter, as long as it's water :-)
