I’ve been finding really cool, deeply colored wallpaper that I love as an accent and a shot of color in the midst of the interior. This is a new idea from the past year that intersects with the minimal black and white theme, but, again, I think it can work. I can’t see any reason at all not to design a dream home around window seats. They make really beautiful, wide plank floors which are also very expensive. Below are the top ten that I’ve pulled from my Dream Home board and I’d be curious to know what your dream home looks like. It’s also a place where I think I’ve discovered some strong trends. Pin it and put the link in the comments below! Everyone has a dream home that they’re building in their head, and I’ve been building mine on Pinterest for a few years now. Whether it ever gets built isn’t the point anymore, as it’s become a working repository of ideas that I love and which are slowly evolving. I would overdo it. They allow for plenty of great, low storage, a lovely surface for sitting, more storage or artwork and they are architectural COMFORT FOOD. In other words they’re inviting and provide more opportunity to get comfortable within the home. In this minimalist interior softness and warmth are super important, but need to be as elemental and rustic as the other materials, hence fur, faux fur and (best) wool pelts are going to be used liberally. It can also be a work table, a food prep table and a place to do arts and crafts. Black and white with all its contrast and freshness feels bold and new but classic to me. I would like to see one room with four bunkbeds. The fireplace wants to be large, central, provide practical heat and make a statement at the same time. I’ve seen many of these coming from Scandinavia and some are even black, which I love. It will not be a precious table that anyone worries about. I love them however and would try to get this look, possibly with old wood or barn wood.

To make maximum use of space and provide lots of extra beds (for children or adults), I would build in bunk beds just like the picture above.
