The House That Pinterest Built

Lately I've become completely obsessed with the idea of not living in a sub-standard apartment building. Don't get me wrong, my apartment is nice, but having to depend on elevators and put up with the idiotic musings of rude people in the lobby, is starting to get really old.

Ok, it's not starting to get old. It IS old. Anyways, here's my dream house on Pinterest. I'll break it down, room by room.

The Entrance.
A well-lit, classy yet functional entryway with a giant mirror would be perfect for me. That way, I don't have to run into our bedroom all the time for that "one last" once-over to make sure I look presentable.

The Living Room
Exactly what it says, the room where we do our living. If I didn't have kitties, I would all over getting a leather sofa, but since they would shred that faster than you can say "scratching post" I guess it will always be a dream!

There isn't much that makes me as giddy as I get when I see a beautiful kitchen. A huge sink with all stainless steel appliances is probably as close to heaven as I'm ever going to get.


A Workspace to Call My Own
Right now, I've got all my stuff strewn across various parts of our apartment, all my clothes and shoes are hanging out in the bedroom, my makeup and whatnot in the bathroom and my school supplies are all over the living room and dining room. This could be rectified with my own personal working room. A desk where I could do all my (positive) writing and (negative) bill paying, and then included in the room I could cultivate my own clothing museum...

Even though I may not be practicing what I preach right now, I firmly believe that the bedroom should be as uncluttered and serene as possible. Our current room would be hitting the nail right on the head if it wasn't for the tornado known as OFW that I'm too lazy to clean up after. This room here would be ideal. A nice low bed perfect for collapsing into. 

I've been noticing now, for months that the hallway leading the parking garage in my building (DON'T EVEN get me started on what I think about parking garages) kind of smells like mould. It's nasty...and thinking like a rational person, I would have thought that having a great smelly and damp hallway would be high on the list of things to fix. But no, the other day I come home to find that the latest bit of revamping that was done in my building, was the painting of the lobby, which was last done like FIVE MONTHS AGO. Seriously? 

I think I need to make this dream home a reality sooner rather than later because if apartment living doesn't drive me mental, it will surely kill me of mould poisoning. 


  1. Ahhh, my place was a total disaster after OFW, haha.

    Loving the contrast trend going on in the apartment photos you picked out, it gives such a clean look (even when it's messy inside).

  2. I love this! I want to steal this idea (and obviously credit you and link your blog) on my blog! I can't wait to have a house one day so I can make it Pinterest worthy.
