dream barn.

I want to live on a farm. I think it's the most consistent, long-lasting dream that I've had.

A couple weeks ago, when I was snowed in with my nephews and niece, we started to draw our "dream town", complete with our "dream house", "dream Main St.", "dream coffee shop", "dream town square", etc. Although I've had this love affair with black as the prominent color choice for home decor, after browsing the style files the other day, I've fallen in love with falun red. Don't you love how modest the exterior looks, and how spacious the interior looks?

This house also makes me happy because there is a mattress on the floor. I've always felt this slight paranoia that I'm still living in my college years because my mattress is still on the floor. I've insisted that it can totally be chic! How comfy does this little corner nook look? It's exactly the idea that I've been going for: cuddle up  on a very low bed with a book and a comfy blanket.

One renovation I'll add? More counter space in the kitchen!







ps, here is my colored penciled dream farm. will you support my pumpkin patch?

  1. This is adorable! As a designer, I've come to realize that sometimes the smallest spaces are the most precious ones. Everyone always wants to go "bigger" but sometimes smaller is better! In this case, this would just be too cute to pass up.
