Home Of My Dreams

I've been frequenting Pinterest a bit too much lately, and I've noticed that one of the boards I pin to the most is my "Home Of My Dreams" board.
Six months ago, if you had asked me any questions about my idea of a dream home, I wouldn't have known what to respond.  It's not that I hadn't thought about it (my mom was a realtor and we watch HGTV religiously), but I just didn't have any idea what my style was.  Now I have a definite idea in mind, and thinking about it just makes me giddy.
If you're wondering what my home style is, just read the description of the board:  "I'll take one extra-nice Cape Cod/ Southern Plantation home, with all-white interiors, a lawn covered in ivy and hydrangeas, and a Tumblr-worthy front door.  A home with a view is preferred but not essential."  To add to that, I'd also like everything to be in corresponding colors of white, navy, and gray, and I'd love one of those driveways that's lined with trees.  I'm definitely branching out, right?

4. I can easily pretend that I live in Europe with this kind of front door.
Something like this but possibly darker colour. And without the birdhouse obvs.

5. Talk about making an entrance!

10. If this isn't Tumblr-worthy curb appeal, I don't know what is.
Lovely hydrangeas blooming along and over fence......love them!

Is this house scheme a realistic representation of the first home I'll ever own?  Probably not.  Can a girl dream?  Of course.

What's your dream home?

Love,
