My Dream Home Vol. 3

Would I sound weird to you if I told you I really really want to hang a huge world map in the most prominent area of my dream home? Having adorable nerdy little kids who can point out each continent, country and capital like it's the most natural thing is also part of the brilliant plan. It's free to dream, right? :)


I'm also very much set on having a mini library. It will have white bookshelves from floor to ceiling, comfy chairs, and plenty of natural light. Hopefully, my children will not only be Geography geniuses but they will also count reading as one of their most favorite past-times. I got my love for books from my parents and I'm hoping I can pass on the same too.

I've always had a thing with typewriters. We had a black one back at my parent's house and just thinking about how the tips of my fingers would hurt after using it for hours is making me smile right now. My geeky childhood rocks! I also remember getting in huge trouble with my parents because I used to pound out endlessly during the wee hours while everyone else was already asleep. I miss those old days. I'll definitely be getting a pastel-colored typewriter (that actually works) for my dream home like this one:

Indian philosopher and teacher Sri Chinmoy said it best: "If you want to remain always happy, always perfect and always fulfilled, then always keep inside your heart a pocketful of sweet dreams." I'm so excited to turn all these into a reality in the nearest future. We just submitted all documents required for this home we're purchasing. I really hope all things go as planned.

What are your sweetest dreams made of? :)

  3. When I come out to the BVI to visit my boyfriends family with him, we have our own annexe of the house with a kitchenette and lounge area as well as bedroom and bathroom. We have a huge world map framed and hung up in the lounge. We place little stickers on all of the countries we've visited together. I know it's going to move with us to our first home together - I just love it! A library room is an absolute must for me too. I've dream of a bookcase with a rolling ladder to reach the top since I first saw Beauty and the Beast as a little girl! x

  6. I love the idea of a world map. It's something I've wanted for awhile, I just haven't the room for it. I love the idea of marking off where I've been with embroidery or something similar. I've seen it done on a few blogs and I think it's just lovely. I do have a map of a large section of Canada over my home office desk. Although, it's not really the same thing is it.

  9. Ohh I would love a mini library too! And magical treasures, inspiring pieces of art and colorful walls. I have wanted a world map for ages on my wall, but never really came to it.

  10. I think your dream home is MY dream home! The giant map, the library (obviously!), the typewriter... lovely! I would also enjoy a lush mini courtyard, where I can have friends over for 1920s themed parties- drinking out of rainbow champagne glasses! ^^

  11. These are so pretty! I also love that little succulent in a tea cup next to the pastel pink typewriter.

    I think my dream home would have a pastel room. =)
