But if I reel it in a little I would gut my house and our coach house.The coach house would be an artists' studio and in our house the walk up attic and the basement would get finished.
I don't think our style would change too much but everything we owned would be hand made.That's our big fantasy.
first, i would have land. not a ton of land, but a fair bit. i would have a cob build, off the grid house. i would likely grow bamboo or some other sustainable plant for burning in the wood burning stove (a friend of mine does this). it would have a lot of gardens, as above, and be very minimally decorated. i like the furniture to take prominence--so i would buy beautiful, natural pieces built beautifully and built to last (and also eco-friendly/sustainable).
i would use jars (as i do now) for flowers, as i love to have bouquets around.
so, yeah. i would just be more of what i do now.

I'd want it a bit bigger, but this is the general idea. Off grid, surrounded by acres and acres of land that my like-minded family/friends would live on as well. Not to mention the whole assortment of homesteading things that would go with my strawbale, off grid hobbit home...

I would also have a home in a beach or resort type town. This is a goal we have someday.
We have always been DIY etc so we pretty much can have what we want such as craftsman furnture etc. Its more of the timing and $$ resources stopping us from having it right here right now. But we kind of like the waiting and dreaming instead of just having it all right now. Make sense?

Basically, it would be a typically minimalist Scandinavian home, with the smallest carbon footprint we could manage. It would be self-sustaining and next to a large, beautiful northern lake with lots of land. Something like this would be nice.
