I know it is a sin, but there are things I see in decorating magazines, on blogs, in others’ homes that make me covet. Here are some of my current lustings, none of which I will be able to afford in the forseeable future.
I want a sectional for our downstairs living area. It doesn’t actually have to be this sectional from Pottery Barn, but it does have to be comfy, neutral-ish in hue and slipcovered. The slipcovered part is where shopping gets tricky. But with pets and 1 and 1/2 kids, I feel it is a must.
I want a pantry. In fact, it borders on a need rather than a want. But, since our current house not only doesn’t have one but also doesn’t have a space conducive for one, this is a pipe dream that appears at the top of my wish list for any future home.
I have always loved brightly colored doors. This shade of blue would be divine on our current home. Alas, painting a metal front door such as ours is a real pain and having it professionally painted would put a sizable dent in my tiny wallet. The dream lives on…
Maybe it is the touch of southerner in me, but I love porches. I want a 3 season porch to extend the living area of our Minnesota-based home. I can just imagine curling up with a book on the porch spring, summer and fall.
I want a collection of ironstone and milk glass vessels along with a beautiful place to display them in my home.
Which leads me to my final want…
I want a cottage that looks like this, on 10 acres of land. And, I want the inside to look like it fell out of the pages of Country Living. Is that so much to ask?
