I LOVE Instagram and I have to say a little addicted to it now. Facebook and I are kind of in an open relationship now. I mostly use it to browse and share eye opening videos from the internet that completely make me rethink our capability humanity. (I hope my friends don’t start thinking that I’m an introvert activist… I’m not really). I just do my bit and “share” these videos to pass on the gilt so I can clear my mind and feast my eyes on these Instagram Hotties!
Oh yes, great way to rub it in the faces of mothers with child-proofed homes. Good on her and her choice of delicious gold/bronze/copper bling accents. I love Cameron Diaz even more.

Plastic boxes and containers…! YUCK! Please get rid of them immediately!
When there are cheap and very pretty basket options out there.
Baskets brings an effortless rustic look to your space. Did I already say it’s cheap. What’s better is the lovely weave foresty smell it mostly has and the fact that most baskets are hand made with strong reed fibres making them very durable.
Filled with so much happiness today as it’s but youngest son’s 1st Birthday today. Looking back over the past year, I feel a sense of true pride over the trials and joy bringing our youngest born into this world and into our life. His light will truly bless everyone that has come or will come to know him. Indeed a special guy.
Looking at these pictures of Ellen and Portia’s Ranch home made my heart leap a little today too.
What a majestic place.
The mist and the beautiful trees. The natural awesomeness of this place is just heaven on earth.
Thank you Hema for sharing this post.

If there was an image of a kitchen I would love to cut-n-paste into reality this would be it.
I love everything about this kitchen.
Summer showers outdoors is a wonderful idea!
Aesthetically this home looks absolutely gorgeous. Though I would question it come night time. There is something about lakes at night that gives me the creepes!
Marrying a gardener has it’s perks! To walk out of your front (or back garden if it was my dream home ~ just saying) to see this every day will just enrich my life in countless ways.
Knock knock!! Welcome to my humble home. Please come in.
I am in love with this gorgeous sleek black door and frame. The stone porch and porch light accessorizing the whole entrance perfectly.
Obviously this is pure fantasy. Just go along with it.
We like to keep our entertaining outdoors as often as possible so we went for bifolds creating an open space where our guests can flow easily in and our of the house.
Even as a transition space to kitchen, it’s still a place to mingle and faff around. So we made it inviting.
A big and bright kitchen is imperative. It’s a place for family breakfast, preparing lovely family meals, and the special place where friends and family come to for some tea and sympathy.
Waking up every morning to calmness is what we should strive for in life.
Once again a sense of calm oozing from every part of our home. With lush country green as our backyard. It’s rude not to keep everything else open and simple.
Last but certainly not least, our little mud room situated on the left from the house’s rear entrance. A place for my daily Birkin.
~ Thank you to all the gorgeous homes for making this dream a visual reality ~
With the very little sleep I’m getting this bedroom is something to drool over.
This serene walkway leading up to home makes me feel like moving to the country.
… or soothe your troubles away in here.

When the kids are all grown up and my house is less likely to be royally trashed. This is something to look forward to. I believe in town and country homes. Town houses are somewhere you can live in for easy commuting back and forth from work or to be closer to friends. Country living is mainly about spending time at a quieter and slower pace with family and taking a breather from the hustle and bustle of the city and to get back to nature. The only question is where…
How is this for a gorgeous town house.
Although I’ve not had a proper night’s sleep in months and my home is starting to look like a Mother Care store with play-pens, changing tables and strollers all taken out of storage and set-up. I’m still hopeful that it’ll one day look like this.
I’m in love with this closet room with the middle island table with drawers. Getting dressed can be fun!
I wish I could get away with a bright pink front door like this with a large diamond door knob.
Another cool thing about this adult home is to have a bookshelf filled with design books nicely organized along with collected ornaments.
Swiftly snapping back to reality….
Time to get my delivery bag packed.
I admit this is a little far fetched of a dream
come I hope would come true. But you can’t blame a girl for thinking big. So this town house would ideally be located in the UK, Italy or France… Not fussed really. Just love the entrance way, the windows.. everything about it is just calls to me. This is going on my vision board for sure!
If it’s not a town house. The country living also works well for me. Sure I’ll be doing a lot more jam making and baking but seriously why wouldn’t you.. Throw in a few dogs in the large back garden and a gorgeous fire place to warm the place in the evenings. Living at it’s best.
I’d keep my bed and bath simple too with a view like this to take my breadth a way when I wake up in the morning.
