The day we bought our first house was the day I realized that what I actually wanted was to completely remake my house into a new one. Remove this wall, change the floors, leave no wall unpainted.  A never ending slew of light fixtures, hardware, and furniture captivated my every waking moment.  And then I ran out of money (read:  had two babies and realized that the closer we could get to living in a padded room the better) and haven't done much since.
Well, imagine for a moment that you really can make your house into your dream house.  And that you've spent years imagining every possible permutation until you finally settle on THE ONE way that things should look.
Perhaps you'd come out with something like this:
A gorgeous white house with black trim and a brick walkway:

An entrance way with the most perfect pale pink light fixture you'd ever seen:

Asset162754

And a view into the living room that could make a Real Housewife jealous:

Asset162755

I think you'd want a room that looked effortlessly chic, yet comfortable enough to pull up your feet and have a cup of coffee:

Asset162756

And just the right chairs to make a guest feel like they landed in some fantastic land where every conversation just seems better:

Asset162757

Maybe a little lucite table with perfect little accessories:

Asset162758

And monogrammed coasters for good measure:

Asset162759

Check out the chevron tile work in the fireplace! By the way, this is a working, wood burning fireplace:

Me? I would have lots of little whimsical touches, and of course, a fully stocked bar for entertaining:

Asset162761

But if you're anything like me, you'll want to have a room where your kids can watch TV, something less....white :)

Asset162762

Your first order of business would be a pattern so perfect that it just had to be the center of the room:

Asset162763

A green chair that might have come right off the set of Mad Men, and gold bookends that anyone who saw them would want to casually slip in their (very large) purse and walk out whistling and avoiding your eyes. And of course, wallpaper so special that it would take MONTHS to acquire and install perfectly:

Asset162764

Black bookcases, and art everywhere that makes you stop and stare:

Asset162765

A view from the kitchen, and you can see that there are black pocket doors peeking out. Pocket doors are, of course, the solution to all of lifes' problems.

Asset162766

But if you were choosing your perfect house, the one thing I know for 100% sure is that it would have a kitchen like this one:

Asset162767

White marble, stainless steel, black cabinets, gold fixtures....there's a song or a poem in those words, I just know it!

Asset162768

This table was built by Herb Ritts' father, a master craftsman:

Asset162770

An unexpected touch for the barstools:

Asset162771

Glass and gold fixtures as far as the eye can see:

Asset162772

Now, we will retreat upstairs:

Asset162773

Let's start with the childrens' rooms. Obviously your children would always keep their rooms looking perfect in your dream home:

Asset162774



Asset162775

Oh look! The lady of the house makes a rare cameo:

Asset162776

Every detail would be both functional, beautiful, and adorable:

Asset162777

But where would you sleep? In a slice of pale pink perfection, obviously:

Asset162778

What? You'd need a darling gold and glass light fixture?  Me too:

Asset162779

Pink, check, stripe, check :)

Asset162780

Every fabric would be luscious and feel like good quality:

Asset162781

But the bathroom....that would be my retreat:

Asset162783

And this light fixture would be my prize posession:

Asset162782

Once I was done with the inside, I'd go sit casually on my back patio and congratulate myself on a job well done :)
