Sitting on the front porch shootin' the breeze in my home on the range. Maybe I'll even learn to lasso something.
Check out all the pictures of this house. It's where I'm going to put my dream art collection and have my dream P. Diddy White Parties.
There's something about a converted barn that has always called to me. I think it's all the Little House on the Prairie episodes I watched in my youth.
Lovely rural meets modern and light - the problem on the Little House on the Prairie house was that it had one depressing window.
Another lovely setting. I particularly love the site planning and the scale of this home. It's a modernized farm cottage.
I know this is a boathouse, and I don't care. With those views, I'd live in it in a second.
Block Island is one of the most sublime landscapes I've ever seen - tangled wild plants in waves right up to the edges of cliffs. This house is so respectful toward the shingled cottages that already existed here.
Here's another glimpse at it.
Living cozy in a meadow of wildflowers is definitely but a dream.
Oh how I love this roofline, the shingles, the crisp white trim and the idea of a secret garden beyond the tall hedges!
Winter wonderland fantasy. For some reason this kind of reminds me of the house in "Rachel Getting Married", one of the most annoying movies I've ever seen in my life (dishwasher race scene, shaky nausea-inducing camera work - UGH!).
My S.F. dream. Victorian row house should come complete with dreamy cool architect husband.
I've written about this house before, it's the perfect little beach getaway.
Farmhouse fantasy, complete with daisies.
So this is my dream house if I were a famous Hollywood actress who opted to live away from the paps in San Francisco.
This is my Atlanta dream house. It's about two miles from my new house. The dream would have to come complete with someone to clean it for me though, and a bunch of kids to fill it up.
I do have access to this one, because I am super lucky. It sits on a cliff overlooking Nantucket sound.
This is perhaps the most charming little cottage I've ever seen. I love a good shack!
Another one that charmed me in Branford CT - across the street from the ocean. That screen door, windowboxes, and lime trim get me every time!
A great example of drawing on precedent to create a home that's modern and warm. This design is absolutely brilliant.
This is my New Orleans fantasy house. In the dream it comes complete with Harry Connick Jr.
If we'd had this outbuilding as kids, I think we would have been in trouble.
This is the cutest house I've ever seen. It's funny, when I see pictures of mansions, I'm usually drawn more to the adorable little guest cottage. This seems like a little guest cottage where a fairy tale would happen.
