i am obsessed with this old book right now.
i think about my "dream home" way too much. and i've come to the conclusion that there may be no reconciling the different versions of my dream home. spanish villa with courtyard, tiled roof, fountains, goats, bougainvillea. ancient victorian gingerbread house with gables and a tower and secret passageways and nooks and crannies.
handbuilt wooden cabin in the forest.
straight out of a northernlands fairytale.
coziest room on earth?
woodbeam ceilings, hanging herbs, macrame plant holders, ferns, candles, rustic chairs.
lofts up wooden ladders, old moroccan rugs, fringed shawls, paper lanterns, indian blankets.
dream bedroom. imagine if it were snowing...is there anything more romantic than snuggling in this bed with a fire in the woodstove?
the most beautiful staircase i've ever seen. and built in shelves and nooks, homemade stained glass windows, sunlight streaming in.
can you imagine having tea in this cozy tearoom suspended over the creek?
okay, so i love to dream.
meanwhile, my sister is moving back to town and check out her new place!
it's totally an enchanted forest gnome home...being inside brings to mind an old pirate ship. it even has a hanging wagon-wheel chandelier!
and a porch with built-in bench that wraps around the entire side of the house.
so lovely inside. why are houses usually so square? when curves are so much more inviting and cozy! it's like a giant hobbit hole in the pines.
but best of all...addie's back!
