Dreaming of the perfect home

26 Oct

Wanna take a peak into my dream of the perfect home? Nothing fancy, but planned right 😉 I figure since all I do is day-dream about my idea of the perfect house, then what better idea to write about? then the one that inspires me the most!

Okay let’s go…

Now let’s start with the exterior. I picture myself walking up to a cape cod style home that is built with a combination of grey siding, rustic stone and white trimmings and not to mention lots of windows! It would have a welcoming big porch, with lovely lit lanterns and a flowered landscaped path.

If we had a garage it would have these beautiful carriage white doors, and maybe a french door for a side entrance like below….

Or this side entrance to a mudroom…

and a back entrance along the lines of this…

or like this? just imagine all the natural light that would seep into the living area inside ♥

Care to step inside?

Love this staircase…

Always need a powder room on the main floor

And now to an open concept Kitchen & Family living space

**get ready because this picture below makes me scream** I love everything about this room…

The layout, colours, textures, BAH – just everything!

I love the idea of an eating nook/dining area. Surrounded by beautiful windows, slip-covered chairs and a chunky rustic table!

love the windows in this kitchens below

And I would really LOVE to have a pantry, to store all the kitchen accessories and extra food!

And not to forget a big beautiful hood range above the stone!

And I would definitely make the most of the space by making sure all the cupboards and drawers were completely useful and organized. Lots of pull outs and dividers. Love the picture below of how drawers under a sink are way more useful…

Please check this kitchen out below… too many things I love, but I really LOVE those legs on that island – what a fantastic idea!!

A good spacious mudroom/laundry is vital for a busy household I think. A room where all the action and mess happens. And all you need to do is close the door and you can breathe again 🙂 I think this room is key and its helps when it is pretty – maybe I would spend more time in there!

Shall we move to the bedrooms? Let’s start with the Master & ensuite…

Love this vanity..

we can’t forget an amazing shower with lots of jets and a drop ceiling shower head. Adam is dying for one of those!

Oh and we can’t forget the walk-in Closet!!!!

Guestroom..

Let’s step down into the basement…

And of course we can’t forget having a good bar…

and a wine station is a must~~!!!

 

Hope you enjoyed the tour of my dreamy house 🙂

Guest Post from Arcadian Lighting!!!!

Today we have a guest post from Jessica, a writer from Arcadian Lighting. She has put together some amazing beachy images for you guys that I am so excited to share! Enjoy!! xox

Hi there! I’m Jessica from Arcadian Lighting, a blog and website all about the latest interior design trends, while also providing a wide selection of lighting fixtures for any room in your home. I’m delighted to be guest posting on Two Berti’s because I’m going to be sharing some very cool and casual coastal interiors that also have a cozy, winter feel. Even though the holidays have passed, there’s no reason why a few festive, wintery adornments shouldn’t stick around throughout the season. Enjoy!

Coastal Winter

I love the mini wreaths in the window of this gorgeous all-white living room. The crystal ship light fixture is stunning and adds to the decidedly dreamy theme of the room.

Coastal Winter

A string of twinkling lights and an anchor pattern made of iridescent buttons give this living room vignette a festive feel. The cozy white blanket ensure that this is a warm spot to cuddle up and read a book.

Coastal Winter

This lovely coastal bedroom features a sand star garland along the bedframe, a sparkly mini Christmas tree on the nightstand, and†ceiling lights†complementing the rustic wood boards. Subtle pops of light blue are just right for a wintery seaside feel.

Coastal Winter

This sunny, beachy entryway shows off a fun, winter-inspired decoration. The star fish wreath naturally creates a snowflake-like appearance just right for the colder season.

Coastal Winter

The candy cane inspired colors in this vintage beach house bedroom are so cozy and inviting. It’s a more subtle way to decorate for the wintertime.

Coastal Winter

I love the simplicity of this arrangement of bare branches and matching silver ornaments. The baubles within the jar fit in with the types of†lamps†that have a similar textures and shapes.

Coastal Winter

This staircase features a clever use of fresh green garland, a weathered manila rope and sea stars, creating the perfect blend of winter and seaside decorations. So charming!

Coastal Winter

The bright blue, yellow and white patterns in this relaxing living room are very beach-inspired. But the wreaths made of fallen leaves wonderfully indicate the time of year in a traditional winter symbol.†Images†1†|†2†|†3†|†4†|†5†|†6†|†7†|†8
