Show and Tell Monday

Today I am linking up with Becky for show and tell.  This week's topic is all about houses.

1.  If you were searching for a home now, tell me what would be on your "MUST" list.
  1. Three bedrooms and an office (or a fourth bedroom, all with large closets)
  2. Two bathrooms (including a master bath with dual vanities and a bathtub in the main bath)
  3. Open concept living area with the living room, dining room, and kitchen
  4. Basement that we can use as a second living area (with a half bath would be great)
  5. Large, fenced-in yard for our future children and pets to be able to play
 2.  Show me your favorite room in a home {either your home, or any home, i.e. kitchen}.
I love kitchens! It’s probably my favorite room in a home because I love food so much… lol. But the kitchen is only awesome if it’s actually open to the rest of the living space. I hate feeling closed off from everyone else.

3.  If you could have any room redone, tell me which one would it be and what would you like done?

Well right now, I’m renting a townhouse, so I can’t really have any rooms redone. I would love to have my bathroom redone tho. It’s rather small and I want more space! Plus, there is an air vent that blows out from under the vanity and it always makes my toes so cold!

Or… even better… if we’re talking a huge project, I’d like to expand the living room out so we have more living space! We really had to fiddle with the arrangement of our furniture to get everything to fit, and the only way to make it work really seems to cut off the living room from our dining room and leaves this big area of dead space.

4.  Tell me where your favorite stores are to shop for home decor.
Honestly, I am terrible about shopping for home décor. I haven’t really bought any kind of home décor in a while… I guess I did buy new bath mats when we moved… does that count? I basically buy stuff from where ever I’m shopping because it’s usually an impulse buy. I haven’t actually gone out in search of specific home décor items, so I don’t have a usual store.

5.  Show me your dream home {it can be your home, if you already have your dream home}.

I love, what I guess I would call, modern Victorian style houses.  The wrap around porch just makes me smile and I adore the color!

Wow! I love that kitchen! I would love a Victorian style home, but those don't happen out here in the desert. So sad...


I love the pic of the house...I would love a house with a wrap around's always been a dream LOL...your blog now makes me want to do projects around the house LOL (I would say thank you, but my hubby wouldn't lol)
