Day Dreams

Hello Everyone!
Do you ever browse the internet, blogs, books or magazines and
dream of homes you would want to live in? I'm raising my hand!
With our upcoming move next spring I can't seem to stop looking.
Join me for a tour of beautiful homes. I'll take any one of them.  
 The red door grabbed my attention. I want one in our next home. Love it!
 The garage doors are perfect. I like the arches and hardware.
 The mixture of stucco and stone looks great. The grass is so green!
This front porch is dreamy. I'll take some sweet tea please.
The soft gray is a really nice exterior color. I like the peaks at the top too.
How about this amazing exterior lighting. The home glows with warmth.
Wow! This one is gorgeous. I'm really dreaming now....:)
The arch above the front door looks fantastic. It gives it character.
Which one is your favorite?
~*~
Come and join me on my new Facebook and Pinterest. I'm hooked already.
I'll be having some minor blog changes done this week. Pardon the dust.
Have a wonderful week!

They're all beautiful....really like the 4th one, the front porch is great and I love the dormers! Thanks for sharing these...I love looking at houses!

Barbara F. said...

I'd be happy in any of these homes, especially if I had a cleaning woman to help me out. :) xo

Gypsy Heart said...

All are beautiful...but so huge. I'd have to have a ton of $$$ and a cleaning staff. Love the one with the gorgeous porch but like I said, all are wonderful!

Really hard to pick a favorite because they are all so beautiful! I really like the white one with the big front porch..I have to have a porch...it's in my southern genes or something! Love the landscaping too! I know you will have a gorgeous home when you move! Can't wait to see your new "dream home".

Melissa, you picked some great homes! I'm partial to the one with the exterior lighting. I'm a fan of cast stone, against the brick. The iron railing on the balcony does it for me! I'm in love with red doors, as well!! Did you see the one on Barb's house...over at Grits and Glamour???

Michele Smith said...

I LOVE the 4th one, it is definitely my style!!!! I want a red door when we own our home too! I think red doors are fabulous.

Savvy Seasons said...

Oh, Melissa, East Coast homes are so beautiful. Sigh... You are going to have so much fun finding the perfect house. All of your choices are gorgeous. I'm so excited for you. Thanks for sharing! XO ~Liz

L said...

They are all beautiful. Yes, I like to dream too! Love the one with the large porch and the last one.
I'll see if I can find you on Pinterest. Fun isn't it? =)

Angela said...

They're all gorgeous! I love the 5th one down. Whatever house you live in will be absolutely beautiful. :)

Pam@OurAdventuresInHomeImprovement said...

I love them all! We definitely have similar tastes. :) I agree, it's so fun to look at houses, but especially when you'll be in the market soon.

Have a great week!
Pam

Ceekay- Thinkin of Home said...

I can only dream of living in a house like that...but I love the last one. Looks like I will be downsizing...so these are definately out...maybe their sheds might be the size of my next house! It is fun to dream and I hope your dream comes true!

Kathysue said...

Oooh I love to walk down dream lane. I will take #4 and the last one. I like a homey cottage or vintage looking home. Nothing big and grand just quaint and charming is fine with me. Thanks for stopping by my blog house tour of my home,Melissa. It was so nice to have your there,Kathysue

I love the one with the columns and the red door, the exact reason why I fell in love with our newish home (we have been here for two years now). I don't have railings between the columns, 57 feet across the front, I really want them but the previous owners made the porch a tad too shallow, it might feel too closed in. All the homes are lovely! After 26 years in the military, I know how you are feeling...I wanted to move again, two years after we retired. It took a while to get used to having planted feet! Have fun dreaming and searching! Pamie G.

Kelly said...

I really like the 2nd picture best. I'm a sucker for lots of architectural interest on the outside of a house. I also like different roof pitches. They're all so pretty though.

lvroftiques said...

Hi Melissa!
They're all really beautiful! But the third from the bottom is my hands down favorite *winks* Now that IS a DREAM house for me! Which was your favorite? Vanna

Sonya@Beyond the Screen Door said...

What beauties, Melissa! I'd have to say #4 and the last one are my favorites.

Queenie Jeannie said...

#1 & #6 are my favorites!! Gorgeous homes!

Paula said...

I like the last one best because it is unique and has character. Looking at homes is fun!

Jeanette said...

I love to house hunt. I find myself looking at homes all the time. The homes you showed are all gorgeous. Any of them would be fine with me so long as a wallet loaded with money came with it!

The Decorative Dreamer said...

These are all so gorgeous! I absolutely love the 2nd one from the top and the 2nd one from the bottom. I love to look at houses for sale all the time. My Mr. always jokes when he see me looking online and says; "Are we moving again?" I will definitely follow you on Pinterest too. It's so fun! Enjoy the hunt!

Becca said...

Gorgeous homes, indeed ... the 1st and 4th being my faves! I know you are going to find the perfect, most beautiful home ... so excited for you!

"Blossom" said...

House no 7 is my favorite. It has my name on it.......dreaming.

Traci said...

You are not the only one that daydreams! These houses are amazing!

Val said...

Gorgeous homes....I wish I had one of each =)

Emelia DiCarlo said...

Hi Melissa, Love it all!Love the Low Country look of course!

Maria Elena said...

Oh, Melissa! I wouldn't know which one to choose! Beautiful homes!
I know you are going to enjoy looking at buying your new home and imagine how much fun is going to be to decorate it.

Pam said...

I like the second to last one. It makes such a grand statement.

Bring Pretty Back said...

Number six for this girl... althopugh , I love a tiny little house!
Hugs and have a pretty day!

Tanna at The Brick Street Bungalow said...

They are all beautiful, Melissa! I think the last one might be my favorite by a hair. I do love the entry on each and every one! BIG dreams! blessings ~ tanna

Diane said...

Wow...that would be a tough decision..although, I do love a front porch...nothing says "the south" like a front porch.

Marianne said...

These houses are just gorgeous. I'm always browsing the MLS listings even though we aren't going anywhere. You can get some great decorating ideas from other homes. Of course, my favorite is the house with the front porch. I bet you can't wait to start your new home search!

Marianne :)

Nancy from OHIO said...

I like them all! HOW ARE YOU SWEET GIRL??? I try to pop in every once in a while. I am back to school! So.......... not as much time on my hands. Go for a front porch... love, love, love front porches!

Helen's Decor said...

Melissa, I'm so excited for you and your husband to be soon shopping for that new home. Hope you get a nice screened porch....that's my favorite kind. I think you would love blogging about yours as much as I do mine. Good luck finding the right home.
Helen

classic • casual • home said...

Tina said...

They're all so pretty! However my favorites are pictures #1,2,4 and the last one.

Have a great weekend.

Anita said...

Oh yes, Melissa, I do it all the time!! I have house plan books that I look in daily and dream about. Knowing that we are crammed in here like sardines, makes me more dreamy:-)

CAS said...

First, I just want to thank you for following my blog. It's always fun to make new friends!

Wow, on those houses! They are all so gorgeous, but I think my fav was the white one with the great big porch -- love it!
