WHAT'S YOUR DREAM HOME?

Let's do a little Tuesday morning daydreaming, shall we? I think it's such fun to think about the future and play pretend about where I might live ten, twenty, or thirty years from now. I grew up spending summers on Nantucket and can imagine nothing more perfect than a 'Sconset cottage with weathered shingles, perfect hedges, and this lovely little chandelier hanging somewhere inside. I'd love to know what your dream home looks like: a cottage by the sea? a Parisian pied-à-terre? a suburban manse? Do tell!

P.S. Peruse more dream homes here and here.

I'm proud to say that at 25 I finally live in my dream home. A Brick fixer upper w beautiful exteriors. As far as location I'd love to live in New Orleans but Houston will have to do for now :)

I love the idea of this post! I am 19 and a sophomore in college, you bet that I am dreaming of my perfect home to buy in the next four or five years.

Since we'll be living in the DC area for the long haul, my dream house would be a craftsman style home that is perfect for the family, w/a yard for the kids & dog (& let's face it, husband), but not totally out in the 'burbs!

A summer home in Cape Cod would be nice too :)

These houses all look AMAZE (just went to Cape Cod for my very first time last weekend for a wedding), but as a Midwestern girl I'd have to say my dream home would be a big sprawling cabin on the shore of a lake in Wisconsin with lots of yard space for my golden retrievers to run around in!! and maybe room for a chicken coop and a garden in the back so I could make fresh eggs and home-grown veggies. sigh...

My *dream* is to have homes all over the world, they don't have to be huge, a small condo would do!

Good question! I'd take a shingled cottage or a white brick house with ivy growing and a bright door. Somewhere warm :)

Always a 'Sconset cottage! I go every summer also and it is such a great place to live! Or I would take a Georgetown townhouse any day!

i would love a big white colonial with navy shutters and a pink front door on the lake in austin with lots of land. or a townhouse on the upper east side. :)

You and I are two of a kind! My husband and I are currently working on a 5-year plan to own a cottage on Nantucket. 'Sconset is beautiful but we're going for closer to Town. :)

I would like to live in one of the brick stone apartments that are adjacent to Gramercy Park since it is my dream to have a key to that park.

Where isn't a perfect home? I'd love to live in a little shingled cottage in Cape Cod, or a brownstone in NYC, or a Rainbow Row house in Charleston, or an old plantation house in the South. I want ALL the houses.
