08/13 Pinterest Pin(s) of the Week: My Dream Home

by Pennie on August 13, 2013

I see things on Pinterest all the time that I absolutely love.  Besides the pins that I hunt down for you, I have pinned many items for my own ideas.  As I was looking them over, I realized that I have a pretty eclectic set.  Thought it was time to show you some of the items I like the looks of for a great home!

I really like the looks of a Craftsman style house.  I don’t think I want to live in one but I love the entry ways, like this one from Decorating Files.  Doesn’t it invite you right in?

Of course you know that I love a good Southern front porch.  This one shown on Clark Rae Design is pretty much perfect:

I like a living room that is bright, not too formal and not too fussy, with some pops of color and kid and animal friendly.  Something like this one from Hepok:

Or something like this from Better Homes and Gardens (both the one above and this one have elements I like but neither is exactly what I want).

For a kitchen I want something well lit and well laid out with enough storage like this one I found on Reinhart Realtors.  (This is a house that is actually for sale!)

With a breakfast nook like this one from Better Homes & Gardens.

Of course the kitchen needs to have some kind of drawer organizers sort of like these found on Houzz:

And it must have a pantry like this – also found on Houzz by Murphy & Co Design:

I like the serenity of this bedroom from House Beautiful:

Throw in a bathroom with a giant shower that overlooks a beach, (from Home Design Corner):

I love the cleverness of this camouflaged utility room from Hidden Passages:

I want a front patio – This one is by Whitten Architects – also found on Houzz:

As well as a back deck  – something like this one from Trex:

And finally a little getaway place for me, when I need some peace and quiet – from Buzzfeed:

Put it all together in one of the little houses from Tumbleweed Houses:

Or one of these Katrina Cottages shown on Slabbed:

Pretty sure all that is doable, right?  If only Pinterest could make my dream come true!
