We have the open living space that I love, and will always be a must have in our home, with an open kitchen, dining room, and living room. Everybody has their own bedroom, the kids have their own bathroom (not they ever use it), and hubby and I have ours.
Then, we also have an extra room that serves as a playroom, guest room, office, and storage room. Gotta love those all purpose rooms. And we can't forget about the garage. We have one of those too and despite its main purpose, it does not house our vehicles, but rather tools, toys, bikes, and other
It works for us.
The other day I was reading one of my magazines about the Spelling mansion and all the rooms that it has in it. When I got over the initial reaction of "Oh my gosh, I would HATE to clean all that" (yes, I realize they hire people, but still I would not even want to be those "people") I was intrigued with the purpose of some rooms. There were the multiple bedrooms and bathrooms of course with their closets that make me drool, but then there were weight rooms, a movie room, a bowling alley, a pet room, a library, a scrap booking room, a craft room, and even a gift wrapping room, which I had never seen before. I'm sure I'm missing some of the other rooms, but you get the point...there were a lot of them.
That got me thinking.
If I had an insane amount of money and could build a house with as many rooms as I wished, what rooms would I want?
I think I would go with...
- A massive closet as big, if not bigger, than my bedroom, with those handy organizer systems.
- A library with floor to ceiling bookshelves in that dark cherry. Oh and I would definitely want those big ladders too that slide back and forth so you can reach the books way up top. Belle would be so jealous!!
- Why not throw in one of those gift wrapping rooms too? Pretty ingenious actually. That way I don't have to keep pulling that under bed storage container, that I currently use, in and out. That would solve the problem of always stubbing my toe on it when I don't get it all the way under too.
So tell me, what room would you design?
