One of the things I like the most there is how they decorate small spaces:
They manage to squeeze a lot into a tiny space and make it still look stylish. I've been amazed by small houses and apartments lately. I think we are too messy and have too much junk to live in a 500 sq. ft. living quarters but it amazes me how wisely some people use the space they have. Our suburb house is not small by any means. We have 1800 sq.ft, in case you are wondering, but it was used very wisely when they built it. It's a 3-level twin home with 4 bedrooms, 2.5 bathrooms and a decent size kitchen. It's not my dream house - I still want to have a real dining room one day, and I definitely wouldn't mind to live somewhere close to the beach - but I love it, and it works great for our family so far.
But I know some people who think you can't possibly have a family with kids in such a "small" space. They want bigger, even bigger, and then they might think it is better. I can imagine that for many this would be an absolute dream house:
That's actually the most expensive house that ever hit the market. Just $190,000,000... It took me a few attempts to write all of those zeros right. Actually, the price of it was barely lowered, you know, a merely 50 million dollars... Not that big of a deal... But it has 13,519 square feet with 12 bedrooms and 9 baths and overall its pretty impressive (especially the views. Look at these views! You can read more about this house here if you are curious).
So my question to you - in fact a bunch - what is your dream home? I don't want you to be realistic, I want you to dream :) What do you have/need in your place to fit all of your needs? Could you live in a tiny apartment with a loft bed and a kitchen the size of a pantry or would you rather have a nice master bedroom with a walk-in closet and a master bath? How far can you push your level of comfort?
Are you happy with where you live right now??
