The perfect house

A home is a sanctuary, an entrance into a special place to recharge and restore.

The perfect home for me involves a lot of places to lounge about near natural sunlight.

There would be reading nooks with lots of pillows.

The bedroom would have a view onto the garden.

The dining room would have an entire wall be a window. The focus is on the outside, not the inside. Notice the sparse furniture. Simple, efficient.

The yard would be enclosed in such a way that nobody could get in, but the walls would be concealed on my side with plants. This would provide safety without a sense of being trapped.

The back yard would have a staircase

That led to an outside room, perhaps like a Japanese tea house. But it would have cushions and pillows.

In some ways I like the idea of an outside bathroom. It feels daring and bold.

But it also seems like it would be cold and drafty.

So then there is the idea of a bathroom that has a lot of light – again, the idea of a private yard would be necessary.

A view out onto a Japanese tea garden would be excellent.

The house would have no straight lines – all curves and waves, with white or cream on the walls. The color would come from the floor and accessories like pillows.

And there would be a lot of books. And tea. And craft supplies.
