interiors: house dreaming

i've been an apartment gal for so long

but recently we've been talking about houses.

ย 

i'm dreaming of painting walls-

soft, layered, hazy.

i'm dreaming of breakfast nooks,

with thonet chairs and marble tabletops. 

just big enough for a scone, a latte, and a notepad.

thinking of open shelving-

and ample space to display my dishware collections.

(and a cupboard or two for things that are best out of sight).

thinking about bedrooms 

that are light and airy like clouds...

with draping, swathes of fabric,

and crisp white sheets.

ย 

and dark like caves.

perfect for hibernating at night

and throwing open the window in the morning.

(i still need convincing on the all dark, bedroom cave...

but if i did go for it, the paint finish would have to be matte/flat

and there would have to be a very bright window!)

what do you daydream about?

what's your ideal house style?

ย 

i'll be posting more inspiration pictures

and sharing some of my current apt stylings

as the new topic 'interiors' 

grows on the blog!
