I fantasize about one day being able to reupholster my own chairs and refinish my own furniture, but until I have the time and space to learn, I will keep envying all the design bloggers out there and read about redoing religiously (nice alliteration, huh?) πŸ™‚

My dream would be to have a much more open floor plan with room to entertain and lots of well-designed storage so we could avoid the cluttered look we currently have…if you're going to dream, might as well dream big! πŸ™‚

My design fantasy is a solid white bathroom. Not just white though, glossy-shiny-shield-your-eyes white. I would just soak in the tub there and close out everything. There is currently an army of rubber duckies breeding in my bathtub.

My design fantasy would include floors that are grippy enough so newly-walking socked feet won't slip, soft enough so they don't leave bonks and boo-boos on sweet little heads and chubby baby knees and firm enough that cars and trucks can zoom across them, oh and they have to clean up easily. I'd also like lots of built in storage to hide the ever-growing mountain of toys.

I dream of having a clean house (hehehe, it's definitely a dream!) where the gates look like they belong, the "child safe" stuff not only looks fantastic (like it could be in a Home and Garden instead of Family Fun) but also work (that's a dream too! Gosh, I'd settle for my son keeping his clothes on!) I'd love to have a bedroom in brown and blue, with silk sheets in a chocolate brown, nice painted walls (why we've never painted our room, I have no idea) My husband's deck could fold up into the wall instead of taking up space. And I love the idea of built in storage to hide all the toys.

I've always wanted to transform one massive wall into a huge clock, by mounting the guts and hands in the center of 12 small shelves.

Then I could make the "numbers" anything I want: flowers, candles, origami, kids blocks, photographs, small sculptures, ornaments at holiday times, etc.

I envision the diameter of the clock face being at least 6 feet across, and little or no other art in the room. It'd be an amazing statement piece that could transform the room over and over and over again.

It'd be especially awesome if I could find a mechanism that allowed for interchangeable hands, so the entire face of the clock could change with my design whims.I have no clue if such a thing is even possible.

Of course, the whole idea is dependent upon the right space.

1. A playroom for all kiddie messes, like the unfinished room in our house in vermont, which literally transformed every few weeks – from the paint on the wall (my favorite was the pink phase) to the puffy paint on the floors.
2. an open kitchen, because food is where the party's at
3. furniture by ANYTHING other than ikea (someday i hope to afford better)
4. a sewing machine and the time to use it (oh and the skills to use it right)
5. family portraits, pictures, and kiddie art tastefully creating a hallway mosaic
6. and while i'm at it, i'll throw in a japanese water garden out back

aaahh… fun to dream!!!

My design fantasy would be to live in a gorgeous craftsman home with the original, warm hardwood floors and moldings. It would be filled with vintage furniture: brightly colored Eames rockers, a Noguchi coffee table, and the most coveted of my fantasies, a Saarinen Tulip Table with a white marble top in the dining room (with mismatched Ghost chairs around it of course). Big fluffy rugs would be scattered around the house and everything would just be modern comfy cozy. Sigh… one can only dream…

My design fantasy would be my color blind husband letting me actually put my art school color theory to work and let me paint the house without him having to okay the choice. Seriously…he is COLORBLIND and knows it, you would think this gives me the ability to make this decision, but unfortunately that is not the case. Hubby is so colorblind that he was convinced the car he drove for 6 years was red when in fact it was plum purple!!! He had to ask all of his friends to verify that I was NOT playing a joke on him.

My dream design is a secret door with secret stairs inside leading to a secret lair (the children would never know!) Inside the secret lair would be a pantry just for grownups with all sorts of "bad for you" food and a library with those bookshelves that go from ceiling to floor and you have to have a ladder that has wheels and slides. It would have tons of books and large brown leather chairs and Turkish rugs. All this, I would share with my husband. Then inside another secret door, would be a bathroom with a large white claw foot tub and beautiful teal and black damask wallpaper (my husband hates wallpaper) and a pedestal sink and lots of cabinets for makeup and hair things and lots of fluffy spa quality white towels that you can never have when you are the only girl in a house full of boys. And candles, oh, the candles! No one, and I mean no one, would ever know of this bathroom. The three males in the house could fight and lament over the one bathroom in the "regular" house. πŸ™‚

I fantasize about a cottage on the beach with worn wooden floors and thin white curtains blowing softly in the beachy breeze. Aaaahh…

I fantasize about having a house in which all of the remodeling is FINALLY finished: the children each have their own room and we are not all in one bedroom; the living room is fit to sit in, with a fireplace, and we can cozy up on a soft comfy couch; we have gorgeous hardwood floors; and a huge clawfoot tub so that I can soak my tired body and have Calgon take me away πŸ™‚ .

I fantasize about having a floor free of milk splatters, walls free of scribbles, and a couch that is not sadly broken after an epic superhero game. And also for a maid πŸ™‚

I want a "lady cave". All you ever hear about are man caves. I want a lady cave with all things feminine. Tea sets and lace and silver handled brushes and leather bound books. The best part- silence. πŸ™‚ And lots of Victorian-esque charm.

My fantasy design would be to change out the style of my home every week! Sometimes I feel a little rustic, other times shabby chic and yet other times modern/sleek. Really I'd just be ok with one of these awesome chairs to pair with our rustic dining room table for that fun unexpectedness!

Oh how I would love a sparkling kitchen with a huge butcher block island on casters! and shelves below, with cute wire baskets to organize all my baking accessories! dreamy… and I'll take the back yard deck with the door off the kitchen that Ms Genevieve up there ^ is talkin about, too!! πŸ˜‰

My last entry- am so sad! LOL I would love a room like the one from the Little Princess after the Indian guy sneaked into her room and filled it with awesome stuff. (BTW, did anyone else wonder how he got all that stuff over there into the attic when he had to crawl across a plank of wood between two houses?) I love scarves and the pillows and well, pretty much anything that comes from India. I could live in Pier 1.

my design fantasy includes amazing curtains. right now we rent and have to keep up these awful beige ones from the 70's, which are not even remotely cool. i can't even take them down because they're attached to the curtain rod. *sigh* we need the privacy but the design geek in me shudders when i see them.

I want high ceilings, sputnik light fixtures and danish modern everything. I would also LOVE a white couch (it will never happen because I have a penchant for red wine and 2 kids under the age of 3). And a massive avacado green wall with photos and drawings of my kids from floor to ceiling.

My fantasy is a home with a place for every activity and every activity in it's place, ready at a moments notice….
Clean, sleek, modern surfaces that fingerprints just bounce right off of…
The air fresh with lavender, thyme & citrus…
Plenty of open space for whatever activity you choose…
floor to ceiling windows (perhaps showing a view in the tree-tops high above the ocean, which always has some fun surf!)…
a living & breathing house, made of wood & non-toxic materials…
a long light hallway, long enough to host a gallery of my Scarlett's artwork…
and as we have now… FULL OF LOVE!
(sigh) that all makes me happy! dream, dream, dream! πŸ™‚

I'd love a home with a really big closet just for me….pink walls & leopard carpet, a big window with lots of light & a full length mirror. A super fun, high gloss white French Rococo dressing table with a ghost chair:) Sigh. Love! The rest of the house would be an eclectic blend of styles with lots of sentimental and personal touches, tastfully done!

A sewing machine that can read my mind. Whenever I want to work on a new project, it will setup the right settings so I all I have to do is feed the thread and material. I'm tired of getting the thread all bunched up.
