Today’s fabulous “Dream Home” comes from the mind of Tobe of Because It’s Awesome. Tobe scoured high and low to find inspiring rooms that we haven’t all seen a million times before and she definitely succeeded! I am particularly in love with the rich, navy dining room she chose. Enjoy!
Hello! Tobe here from because it’s awesome, quite honored to be giving you a tour of my dream home today on La Dolce Vita!
Our home is full of character and life. Please, come on in.
The entry was influenced by one of my favorites, markham roberts. I’m so happy with the bold color and pattern. I’m still looking for the perfect metallic touch, and am on the hunt for large scale black and white geometric pillows for a graphic punch on the settee. Our homes are always a work in progress, are they not?
Let me show you to our family room, where we spend quite a bit of our time.
The kids are fearless, jumping from that ottoman to the couch and back again.
I truly adore all of our pieces and the layout, but I’m debating a new color scheme. Maybe something more like this:
Right this way, you’ll find our library. I just love getting lost in a book here with a cup of coffee.
From there, I’ll show you to the den, which doubles as our office:

The floral artwork is a little feminine for my husband, but he lives with it because I am smitten with the drama of it against the blue green walls. Of course, no office or den is complete without a mini bar, velvet seating and mirrored bookshelves.
Just past the den is our kitchen:
and at the end of the island, our breakfast nook:
We’ve hosted many a guest here in our dining room:
The rich navy walls are so enveloping. It really is a wonderful room to host parties way into the night.
If you need it, the powder room is right around this corner:
If you care to follow me upstairs, I’ll show you to your room for the evening.
and the guest bath:
If you need anything, we’re just right down this hall is our master:
and our bath:
We have a perfect view of the backyard from our private balcony. see the patio? it overlooks the infinity pool:
and if you look just past those trees, you can see the tree house. though it doesn’t look like much, it’s a perfect place to escape to when you need a few minutes to yourself.
Loved having you by — please come back anytime!
Thanks again, Paloma, for having me today!
