My Dream House

One of everyone’s fantasies is the dream house: if you had a place that soothes your every wish, how would you like it to be? I think this is a good question because it can tell a lot about you to the one who asks you.

I would like my home to be on a cliff, with a superb view over the sea or the ocean.

There would be a thick glass wall between the office and the living room to admire the view.

My office room would have a substantial transparent LCD display, similar to what Tom Cruise was operating in Minority Report.

The house would be energetically independent, using alternative energies for producing electricity and heat. I am thinking about solar panels + wind energy.

The office room would be the biggest, with desks on wheels so they can be moved around easily. This way, I can work with as many people as I want in the room or alone. In my office room, I would also have space for training 15-20 people. I would also have all the equipment for video transmissions through the internet & satellite. There would be shelves up to the ceiling with books,  DVDs, and Blu-Rays on the walls.

My dorm room would have a bed inside a library, which you then turn after using. Well, something better than this. Anyway, you get the concept.

Then, I would have a creativity & strategy room, a place for all the breaks and the planning to take place, a colored, well-designed place that would stimulate me and inspire me with all sorts of things that I can put on the walls, move around, including graphics, tables, panels for colored notes, blackboard, posters and all kinds of things.

The kitchen should be big enough, with everything at two arms’ length, the space well used, and the table(s) which can be easily packed and unpacked, depending on the number of guests.

Additionally, I will have a family, a room for my wife, and at least 2 rooms for the kids, with the space, used so that if we have three kids, the 2 rooms can be transformed into 3 rooms. When the rooms are not used for this purpose, they can serve as a place to meet the kids.

As much as I like ample open spaces, I also appreciate doors. So each apartment room would have its own entrance, preferably with a key.

The house would have 2 bathrooms. Both with shower and bathtub.

Now, that’s enough about the basics of the inside.

I would have the office room all in white. Nothing else.

I would have something like a Bao interior fountain as a decorating fountain for the inside. The water wall is optimal for cleaning the air and offering a relaxing atmosphere. It attracts dust particles, ionizes the air, and evaporates water, which keeps the skin from drying.

I would choose apparent rock for the living room, something similar to these. My favorite would be Alpin Color:

I would have a fireplace in the living room and one in the garden. Something like this. I’d love something like this.

By the way, for decor in the garden, I would also use an artesian well. Something like this.

For the flowers, I would use these pots.

Also, in the garden, I would have a small kiosk. Not something as extravagant as this, but something similar:

I would use cubic rock for paving. Cubic stone is cheaper and more durable than other ways to create alleys in your garden.

For the dorm room, I would go for apparent brick, something pleasant and warm, like this:

For the room of the (potential) wife and the space for the kids/clients, I would get some wallpaper like this or like this. Get a picture here:

I’ve been invited to describe my dream house using the products of the “Rock Star Construct” company, which has quite an extensive range of products, almost everything for interior and exterior decorating, especially natural rock, which is being imported. The company has a showroom in Bucharest. On their Romanian website, you will find a lot of different types of products, which are well worth checking out.

They also have decorative plaster in every color you could ever wish. And they also have everything you need to take care of the natural rock.

What is your dream house?
