dream living {brownstone beauty}

I have a long checklist for my perfect home . The dwelling of Caleo and Fitzhugh Karo pretty much ticks off everything of the list! Starting with the big (that it is a charming brownstone and has perfect shelving) all the way down to the minute (succulents over a farmhouse sink + library ladder) and everything in between (wide white plank floors combined with natural wood pieces).

Do you have a checklist? Have you found a home that's architecture and interior design comes close?

I definitely have a checklist but it's probably too long to match. I've found 1 that comes sort of close but still quite a bit different than what I have in my head!

Totally agree on this one...the soaring ceilings, white+wood palette, & big windows make this the kind of house I dream of waking up to each morning.

Loving all of the different shapes and textures... Now if only I could add some color to this and I'd be the happiest camper there is!

What a beautiful home - I think that, like you Blair, this home probably best epitomises everything I would want in my dream home. I am particularly fond of the library ladder!

Wow, I love it all. The bed, the bar stools, everything. Great spaces.

Every time I see a post like this it brings out my inner conflict of colorful v. neutral and white. I love both! It makes it very hard for a girl to decide on a design. =)
