5 Superfluous Rooms We Want In Our Home
Buying a place may be years off, and with square-footage at a premium it’s unlikely we’ll have the high-ceiling Victorian town house we’ve been dreaming of. Oh but all the things we’d do if space wasn’t an option…
1. A Sun Room
We want ours light, airy and preferably filled with plants; all the while we’ll spend our days drinking herbal teas, reading novels and napping on plumped up cushions. And snuggling with cats, lots of cats.
2. A Morning Room
Ever since we visited Highclere Castle (AKA the ‘real’ Downton Abbey), the Estate’s Morning Room had us wondering which flatmate we could evict just so we had a room to receive our mail in. Except ours would have this ultra-cool Palm Beach twist, obviously.
3. A Dressing Room
Complete with live-in stylist. Although we can’t seriously call this room superfluous, it’s an extravagant upgrade from our Ikea wardrobes. We’d like ours with wooden floors, a large rug and an Oliver Bonas style velvet ottoman.
4. A Craft Room
A space in which to display our macaroni shells, sequin pots and sewing machine = major #lifegoals. We feel such a room would increase our creativity ten-fold and allow us to craft all sorts of papier mache objects without having to justify said creations to bemused co-habiters.
5. An At Home Cinema
Although at-home cinemas feel a bit MTV Cribs circa 2006, we’d really appreciate somewhere special to relax given the amount of hours we invest in Netflix. Far from a flashy room fitted with 24 individual Lazy Boys, we’re all for this garden cinema. Think rugs, throws, massive pillows and a huge outdoor screen to watch all our favourite movies on.
