'The house a women creates is a Utopia. She cant help it --can't help trying to interest her nearest and dearest not in happiness itself but in search for it.'
- Marguerite Duras
So here is my Day 12, of my 30 Day Blog Challenge. My dream house or space. Now, I dont really have a dream house, you see, I have lived in houses for most of my life and then I moved into a flat for 4 years and loved that experience. So I keep playing the ' if money were not a problem where would I like to live' game? Some days its a huge flat, other days its a small cottage and most days in a large house. However, certain things stay the same, in what ever scene I choose. These are.....
African themed Living room. Of course!!!!!!!!
A swing. don't know where I would put it. But it would be there.
Seriously colorful kitchen
Day bed with tons of pillows!!!!!
The last two pictures come from this fabulous blog (An Indian Summer) that is my new guilty pleasure. Here is the link.
So, This would be part of my dream space. I would love to have a little area to meditate, a small garden to plant herbs, flowers and pot plants as well as a pantry. Not much huh?!!!!! Ohhhhh add a walk in closet, en suit bathroom.
Not to be strange, but I have certain rules for the place I want to move into...... No death in the house and No divorce either. I learned this from my mom. We never lived in a place that had had a death within the walls of the house nor a place that had a marriage break up in the home. Personally, I would also like a nice quiet street. I lived in a busy one when I lived in the flat. It was also above a bar (though I was friendly with the staff - the bar was opened 6 days a week- not good for my beauty sleep). And a place to park my mini cooper (that's my dream car).
Love, Joy and Day beds
