So if you have followed my blog for awhile, you might be aware that we are living in my tiny but lovely condo that I bought almost five years ago. Due to the current state of the market, we are still there and my wedding presents are in storage. I’ve stayed strong for as long as I could… but now, I would do anything to move.*
*I would do anything to move into my dream home.
So, in the past, I would rip out pictures of clothes that I would like to buy or wedding ideas. Now, added to the pile is home decor. Poor D. He is surrounded by my rippings, which are really just signs of my wantings.
And so, since I do not have my dream home, I have decided to save some of the few of my favorite ideas here on my blog. And when we do one day, own our dream, I can look at my tag “dream home” to find all of my Favorite Things.
Here we go…
I love mother-of-pearl, which you can see for yourself right here. I would also wish to own this gorgeous and incredibly tray. It would look perfect in my dream Master Bedroom. Or my Formal Living Room. One day, I will own a home with a Formal Living Room!
Digressing, I also am a fan of a foyer. However, as an urbanite, I will settle for a space in the entry of our dream apartment that allows for a small table and chairs. My tag is “dream home” so let’s live it up, shall we? I LOVE this look. Not before I tell you the owner’s, don’t you think it is has a certain amount of “wow” factor without being overdone?
It’s Donatella Versace. I know! D couldn’t believe it either.
Last but not least…
As a tea drinker, I really want to own a tea pot. I adore the one from my china set but I was looking for something a bit more sturdy. I found this gorgeous Juliska piece (and don’t you think the blue is so comforting?) with the white trim?
I started to panic, “Should I have registered for this as my casual china?” but then realized that the blue dishes don’t have the lovely white trim. And the tea pot comes only in boring white. Nope, my casual china set is still perfect. Relief! This is nothing worse than registry regret.
