Today, the lovely Seleta of Simply Seleta shares her “Dream Home” with us. I always enjoy reading about her beautiful family, so it was nice to see how they influenced the home of her dreams.
When Paloma invited me to join in her dream home series, I was thrilled. Daydreaming is something that comes naturally, so this task was right up my alley. These days a farm house seems dreamy. Lots of green with plenty of space for critters and kids would be the perfect setting for our family of six. Since we recently added a horse to our brood, I would welcome a home with acres and acres of rolling hills. I’m imagining the outside would be something like this… Maybe a pool in the backyard for downtime… Now for the kitchen. Crisp cabinets and direct access to nature would be a must. My dream would be greeting our horse and ponies from this spot throughout the day. I like the vibe here…just give me a whopper of an island instead of a table and you’ve got a deal. Two sinks for our command center would be perfection. Love the effect of this dining room – I know it’s an older image but what I like is the relaxed feel and connection to the outside. I would replace the wooden chairs with upholstered seating in this stripe, a pair of wingbacks in a fun solid linen and a mod light fixture to add some sass. In a perfect world our main rooms would be highly edited and bathed in soft tones. This is a lovely look for a living room. I always drool over this unforgettable Victoria Hagan family room. Although for me to consider it family friendly, I would need a squishy big square ottoman upholstered in a small graphic pattern and a few toys scattered around the floor…without some sort of mess I’d be confused. Kid rooms. Our guys tend to bunk up at night, so I’d make each room big and friendly with plenty of snuggly blankets and fresh splashes of color. For the master bedroom it would be all about pure relaxation. Something about a canopy brings such a sense of peace to my brain after a long day. Our bathroom would be neutral and spacious with big windows and a ball and claw tub. His and her closets? No doubt. Off the master would be a library with floor to ceiling bookshelves and plenty of comfortable seating. I would find a way to incorporate a leopard ottoman in the mix. If I were lucky enough to have an office, it would be detached from the home and just like this. Windsor Smith knows how to even make work look pretty. Paloma, thanks letting me dream a little and visit your blog today. It was fun so to be here!
