What did you last daydream about? :)

Hey, guys! :D

I hope you all had a great start to your week!

Whenever I find myself with nothing to do, I always end up spending hours on Pinterest -- it's so addicting! The other day I was daydreaming about what my future home would look like, so of course I had to look through beautiful photos of rooms on Pinterest. ;)

I love how airy and spacious this room is -- and how awesome is that bed?!
I can imagine having sleepovers in this room -- it would be so much fun to cuddle up with your sisters and/or friends in one huge bed and chat the night away. ;)

I love how cozy and clean this is. :)

How great would it be to wake up to a beautiful view every morning?

Look at how plush that blankie strewn over the ottoman is!

I would love to come home to this room everyday... plus, I am loving the hat!

I would probably have that many books waiting to be read by my bedside. ;)

Perfect for an afternoon nap!
Just gotta make sure it's securely hanging, I wouldn't want to fall off, haha! ;P

I think it's important to have a comfy couch where you can just hang out without having to worry about messing it up. I love how there's a lamp on that corner of the couch -- I can totally see myself curling up with a good book on that spot. ;)

This one has a very laidback and beachy feel. I love it!
It kinda reminds me of Justin Timberlake's character's Los Angeles home in Friends With Benefits.

I would also love love love to have a room that I can turn into a mini library. I've loved reading ever since I was a little girl, and having a library (a la Belle in Beauty and the Beast) has always been on my list when it comes to dream homes. ;)

While I probably can't have my own library just yet though, I would be happy even with just a shelf to house my book collection.

A comfy couch by my books is also a must!

I like bright and airy spaces, and when I have my own place in the future, I think it'd look something like this... but with a little more me in it, of course. :)

What would your dream home look like? Is there a specific room or thing you really want to have when you buy or build your dream home?

  6. That hammock bed is seriously cool!

  7. Woah, the bed in the first picture is HUGE! I would really want to own that bed.

    When I get my dream house, I want it to have a gym, a library, a game room, a home theater, oh and much much more. my dream room would probably be extremely girly! full of pinks and whites and a lot for frilly things. :D

    I'm having a Feather Earrings Giveaway. Come and join. :D

  28. Lisa-- i think the first room is sooo cool! :)

  29. Such lovely rooms. A room wouldn't last me for a this I'm afraid. I'd have crap everywhere in no time. I'd love it if I could have my room totally neat. but I have stuff everywhere. I can only daydream of a place like these.

  30. I love all white beds, I definitely feel like you sleep the best in them!

  31. ellie-- aww, haha! me too, but i'd make sure to try and keep it clean. ;)

  33. I wish to have like, spacious appartment for me to live there while I'm like still working, travelling and just living life, maybe living with boyfriend. Anyway, I'd like to have huge bookshelf, huge and clean bed and bedroom with like, normal windows, appartment in general with normal windows cause I don't like too opened spaces :/
    I'd paint it by myself and it would totally be me in it. I wish to accomplish that one day, but still keep daydreaming.
    thanks for your comment, tho.
    Dolly, xo

  34. Babe Jane-- you're welcome! :)

    Dolly-- a huge bookshelf and a huge bed are definitely on my list too! and there's no harm in dreaming, it's free. ;)

  35. That first bed is awesome!! Love all of these rooms.


  36. Thank you for your comment darling :) You're so sweety :)
    I love this post and the pictures...We could follow each other,want you? :)

  37. This post makes me want to curl up in each of these beds. That or go shopping to Ikea!

  38. Have I mentioned how much I love your new layout? It's very beautiful. :)

    These photos are lovely. I cannot wait until I own my very own home and I can start redecorating. I'm afraid my apartment complex is very strict about decorating. It's like living in a mental institution...white bare walls. No curtains allowed (only blinds). Ugh.

    I do love pinterest. It's very addictive!

  39. Filh-- yes, of course, let's follow each other! :)

    Marie a la Mode-- hahaha, me too, i want to go to ikea! ;)

    Jennifer-- awww, thank you!!! :) i'm sure your home will be beautiful when you get the chance to decorate it yourself. :)

    I'm in love with light spaces
    and I don't know why but my room is purple :D

  48. Ahhh the dream home. I can't wait for it. I have it in my head and I decorate it everyday! What amazing pics, literally love all of them. I love that hanging bed type thing! I also LOVE the second to the top one. Clean with those shutters behind! The most important thing is my bed. Big, puffy, white, cloud-like and filled with my hubby, kids and happiness!
