We have had the most wonderful weather this last week and through the weekend, lots and lots of sunshine. Which always brings up a long-time fantasy of mine of living somewhere in southern California, where this kind of weather is more often the norm than not. My grandparents took me on a few trips through California when I was younger and I feel in love. I loved the weather and the varying landscapes, the palm trees and the fact that swimming pools were everywhere. In my mind it was all hollywood-esque, all with a timeless mid-century vibe and warm breezes. From then on I often imagined myself living in a mid-century styled ranch (I was really in to old movies and shows from the 50's when I was little which gave me an early love of mid-century design and cropped pants paired with ballet slippers). I should also note I also imagined myself living in either the hearst castle or winchester mansion. But when I spied this home on Houzz, I thought, this is a lot like the house I imagined myself living, if I lived somewhere in my more realistic childhood-california-fantasy, it would definitely be in this house.
Did you have a particular style of house you dreamed of living in someday when you were little?
