Post Your Dream Home
How do you imagine your dream home to look like? Would you picture it to look similar to the Queen's retreat, Le Petit Trianon, because that's how I'd want my home to look like. Even the kitchen would look like the old 18th century servant's kitchen, or shall I say...the warming kitchen.
Image
The other half layout....
Image
The island, or prepping table of course would be much bigger, and made of either wood or stone...because those are timeless materials. Marble tops and granites though they are nice looking, they tend to scream 2000's, and sooner or later that will be too outdated like the 70's sunflowers and daisies wallpaper trend. If I'm going for an old look, I'd rather make it historical.
Image
I love the arrangement of the blue curtains on the window and mirror in this image, maybe if it were elongated to the floor.
Image
Maybe a smaller version of this walkway to the lawn in the backyard.
Image
The stairways of the Trianon are absolutely marvelous.
Image
That's just pretty much an idea I'm collecting and am going to put in collage for the day that dream will come...when the time is right!

These pictures are very nice, your choice's perfect. For me, I'd prefer the room with harph :P It is very large, classy and bright.

I haven't found a picture showing my dream home-inside yet, but I have conceptions about the outside. For example, I can imagine to live in a Suisse castle like Chateau de Chillon or in a Czech castle like Valtice:

I love Czech chateaux, they're very pretty and well maintained. And their gardens are beautiful, too. I can recommend you for example, the chateau de Lednice, it is so so lovely. It built in the early XIXth century, and I guess everybody would live in such a lovely home. Here is the link, if you became interested: http://www.zamek-lednice.info/en/

I think I would choose some small house or the apartment in the center of some large city with a nice view. It would be sunny and bright and richly decorated, with many paintings on the walls, many mirrors, large bed, nice terrace… Right now, I wouldn’t seek for some isolated place although I find them quite tempting (fell in love with the first picture, Chateau de Chillon :love: )
