Away from the hustle and bustle of Manhattan life. Mostly countryside with lots of greenery or close to a lake. White fencing around the house, quite a large yard for our dogs to run around. A dog house on one end. Closed parking garage. A large living room with a beautiful wall to wall shelving system for books. A grand piano at the other end. A fireplace. Comfy couches, a bean bag and a recliner for the hubby. A mini bar. No TV.
TV room should strictly be in the basement and it should have a large screen or a projector to make it look like a theater! A formal dining room to one side of the kitchen. Nice open layout of the kitchen with a breakfast nook. Four bar stools. Tall windows. Plenty of sunlight. A small prayer area facing the north east. I would love to keep it simple, neat and beautiful. A study room with minimal furniture – a small book shelf and a comfortable writing desk. Upstairs, one master bedroom with attached double bath, one room for the children and 2 guest rooms. Parents should often visit. We love to have them over!
All walls should have light colors, simple decor, nothing extravagant, no clutter. Should be peaceful, filled with love and sounds of laughter. May be the children’s room will have some bright colors or cartoons and stickers on the walls! We’ll see once they come into existence! hahaha. Oh, a game room is important too. In the basement, may be next to the TV room where the hubby’s friends can go. I better make place for a carrom board and a ping pong table, to say the least. Wow, I guess I am done here.
Once I finish my doctorate, we would love to buy our first home. Let this be ours 🙂
