Top 2 Tuesday... Dream Homes

Tuesday, May 11, 2010

I'll admit it, I have been a slacker lately with my Top 2 Tuesday and Wishful Wednesday posts... so much going on, but I am finally coming up for air and I promise to not ignore my wonderful blogging friends--hold me to this please! Taylor came up with another fun topic this week, and since we are now homeowners with lots of interesting things going on--flooded downstairs, currently getting our fence put in, etc, I think I'l take a step back and ponder this one:
Top 2... Dream Homes
Basically, my dream home is a classic southern plantation home, complete with all the bells and whistles of a designer's home--I'm not sure there is "one" single home that encompasses everything I want when we build our next home {yes, we will build the next one}, but here are some of my must-haves... 
A BIG Front Porch Complete with Rocking Chairs and a Swing
A Formal Living Room for Tea {or cocktails!} with my Friends
A Relaxing Family Room with Lots of Light and a Working Fireplace!
A Clean and Simple White Kitchen with Loads of Storage and Shelving for Display
Either of these will do =)
A Relaxing Retreat of a Master Bedroom to Escape
With a Seating Area for Reading and Enjoying my Morning Coffee
Cozy Guest Rooms to Make my Friends and Family feel like they are on Vacation
And of course, a Beautifully Landscaped Backyard Ccomplete with Pool Oasis

Remember, it's nice to be able to dream, right??? I know this doesn't technically complete "two" homes, but since I am dream-building what I want, I only need one...Guess I better get back to work now so I can make this happen!! =) Happy Tuesday


  1. I love the idea of having a big porch and kitchen! And master bedroom and bathroom... Ha, a girl can dream, right!

  2. Just gorgeous! Love all of those pictures!

  3. I love those kitchens! I think white kitchens have a great open southern quality to them.

  4. I love the second kitchen and that awesome pool. I want to come and sit on your porch.

  5. SO cute!! (and yes.. we're building the next one too!) :)

  6. Oh I just LOVE LOVE LOVE a white kitchen! My dream kitchen is one like the Barefoot Contessa!

  7. Good choices that porch is GORGEOUS!

  8. That front porch looks great! want it, ha!

  9. Love you dream home ideas. I have so many "musts" for my dream home that I can't even begin to think of how much it will cost one day!!

  10. oh no Im so sorry that your house has a flooded basement! I LOVE your picks...we have the same taste!
