Today’s “Dream Home” comes from the lovely, Southern-California based, Jami Goldsmith of Imagine Design. I am loving the bold architecture and clean lines of the home she’s dreamed up!
Wow, it's so crazy to think that I'm guest posting on the very first blog that I laid eyes on a few years ago! Paloma has been a major reason why I started my own blog, www.imaginedesignblog.com. I've loved La Dolce Vita from the first time I landed on it in a Google search and have been enjoying Paloma's posts throughout the years. It's an honor to be here, to say the least. Thank you! I owe Paloma another "thank you", as this creative exercise has forced me to really think about what is MY style. As an interior designer, I'm so accustomed to fine tuning my client's tastes and it's my job to hone in on their style, so it leaves little room to implement my own. I honestly had a difficult time blogging about this, as I found myself gathering a hodgepodge of pictures from all different types of design, loving little bits and pieces of every style.
My design sensory has been on overload since I've bombarded myself with home interiors while studying it for years, loving it since I was a kid and showing houses as a real estate agent. In order to figure out my favorite, I had to stop and ask myself, "What excites me?". I thought about which homes I've been most attracted to throughout my life and what spaces really make my heart flutter as I walk into them. Undoubtedly and undeniably, one style of architecture and design has always been my front runner: modern. As I think of TV shows and movies with a variety of homes, my favorite is always the modern home like the Cullen's home in Twilight, or Jay and Gloria's home on Modern Family, or Joel and Julia's house on Parenthood. Have you been to Aria in Las Vegas yet? H.E.A.V.E.N. in my book. After realizing that modern is my favorite style, this was easiest post ever to create! With all that being said, welcome to my (dream) home, located in Southern California, on the beach!
VIEW: Last, but not least, this is my view from my backyard. Yes, it's quite nice, I know. A pool is essential to Southern California living and an ocean view is luxury living at it's finest. If I could only choose one of the photos from this post to sum up my dream home, it would be this. Blue skies, a pool with loungers and the gorgeous ocean to gaze at all day long...what could be better? Thanks for visiting my dream home! I've so enjoyed "designing" this home for myself and sharing it with you all while putting in out there in the universe to turn this dream into a reality.
