Hello all!! I hope each of you is winding down your hectic shopping and planning, and getting ready to settle in for some relaxing and peaceful family time.
I’ll be taking all of next week off from the blog. I have projects I’d like to finish up, movies I’d like to watch, relaxing I’d like to do, and planning for the new year I’d like to accomplish. I’m hoping to bring a new, more organized format to the blog in the new year so that you’ll know exactly what kind of posts to expect on each day. In fact, my overall goal for the new year is more organization, more structure, and better time management, so I thought, why not start with the blog?!
So since today is my last blog post of the 2010, I thought I’d leave you with something really fun…the 2011 HGTV Dream Home!! I look forward to the Dream Home each year. So let’s get started…
The home in its picturesque setting. Simply gorgeous.
Mudroom. Heck, this thing is bigger than my kitchen!! 🙂
Entryway. It seems a bit plain to me. Don’t you think?
Gathering Room. This is beautiful. I love the colors used. Of course, I would add fabric to those windows, just because that’s what I do!
Annex. I like the interesting little sculptural thingy hanging above the ottoman.
Kitchen. Do you find this impressive? It’s just okay for me.
Dining Room. I can say unequivocally that I dislike this room. It looks like a boring conference room in a boring office building. What an opportunity missed, in my opinion.
Master Bedroom. I like the colors used here.
Master Bathroom. LOVE the dramatic, tall gray drapery panels used at the entrance.
Guest Bedroom. I prefer this over the master bedroom.
Guest Bathroom. For such a grand house, this seems a bit like an afterthought.
Master Balcony. Oh, how I’d love to have a balcony like this some day!!
Living Area. I love this room. Love the barn door, love the colors.
Ski Dorm. Very fun!! I could imagine some good times being had here.
Ski Dorm Bathroom. Love the light fixtures, and the red/charcoal combo.
Car Barn. Ummm…chandeliers. Yes, chandeliers.
Laundry Room. Oh, what I wouldn’t give for this room!!
Terrace. Don’t you just want to jump right into that hot tub?
There are definitely some great ideas here, but I have to admit that overall, I’m less impressed with this house than I’ve ever been with an HGTV Dream Home. The dining room especially was just such a huge let down. So what do you think?
Well, that’s it for me in 2010. I’ll meet you back here in 2011!!
Addicted 2 Decorating is where I share my DIY and decorating journey as I remodel and decorate the 1948 fixer upper that my husband, Matt, and I bought in 2013. Matt has M.S. and is unable to do physical work, so I do the majority of the work on the house by myself. You can learn more about me here.
I hope you’ll join me on my DIY and decorating journey! If you want to follow my projects and progress, you can subscribe below and have each new post delivered to your email inbox. That way you’ll never miss a thing!
