dream room

photo from anthropologie website

If I could dream a bedroom into being...this is what it would be. I discovered this photo in the Anthropologie catalog and showed my husband. He agrees. So, I'm cutting the picture out for a vision board. Doesn't knocking a wall down and replacing it with old windows sound divine? We already have vintage windows and doors hanging around in our home but to divide a whole room with them? Drool.

I've always wanted a home with a lot of airy space and huge windows and brick walls, distressed paint, flowy fabrics and hardwood floors. Amazing that this room carries the essence of what I've always had in my head.

What do you envision for your dream home? Its fun to start pondering these things and put that energy out there. This is how manifesting begins.

great post! just what I was wanting to write about on my own... One room that I always imagine in my dream home is my kitchen. It's so hard for me to figure out if I want clean lines and funky, or cozy and warm. But my kitchen always always has one of those porcelain farm sinks. Mmmm.

I have books and books with glued pieces magazines- building my dream home, one cut out at a time.

Great Post! I love Anthropologie... it's such a great place for inspiration!

I would need two such rooms... such a greedy girl I know. It's only because it's just so hard to choose... A canopy bed made from cherry wood or rose wood...plush comforters and mattress... a great Moroccan themed bedroom with lots of colors and pillows damask silks beautiful shades of purple, fuscia and golds and those beautiful lanterns nwith colored glass. Scents of vanilla and mint wafting through the room.

The second would be a great white room similar to that of the picture... huge wrought iron bed.. canopy with sheer draperies falling in just the right places, the scent of jasmine wafting through the room or lavendar.... crystal chandeliers.... fresh cut flowers... The thickest mattress possible, huge king size pillows...Crisp egyptian cotton sheets cool to the touch but oh.. so cozy!

What a wonderful dream....thanks for the inspiration!

All the best always,

I love this room. I have always loved the combo of rustic and romantic. It is the best.

This kind of looks like "my" coffee shop I go to.

I love the idea of manifesting your dream home. I need to do this. Maybe it will help.
