    Does anyone watch Grand Designs? Some of the things people come up with are amazing. Mind you, some are unutterably stupid too.:D

    (And they're ALL over budget)

    Some of the designs are incredible, but I don't like how hoity-toity the presenter (and the programme) is. All the houses on there cost a minimum of a million pounds.

    Yes, that's true. I suppose that's the only way they can get something flashy enough to be able to justify making the programme.

    Probably a hobbit home such as the one in Wales. Although I would prefer a bit more space - a lounge or a library, a couple bedrooms, a dining hall (I want my dining table to seat at least 10 people) and an attached sauna cottage with room for sleep over guests is a must. And I want my rooms to be a bit taller than your average hobbit rooms. I'm 5'7 and I don't want to be able to touch the ceiling, lol. Also, lots of colour! Way more than these pictures have! Ideally this thing would be overlooking a lake or a bit bigger pond, where one could swim and fish and canoe. In the garden bit next to the front door I'd have tomatoes and cucumbers and rhubarb and some roots, potatoes, carrots, pumpkin maybe... A few different types of herbs too, and in the summer I could have chillies and strawberries. Plum and apple trees and different currants all over the yard!

    I love the last picture. That window and the view is just amazing.

    Haha yeah I was thinking that when I was posting these pictures. "Wolfie would never have living wood in his house!" In fairness I'm not entirely sure I'd enjoy having indoor trees either, though I do like wood as a material. I also think these people can't really decorate, but I do love a proper cozy, well-lived and loved house.

    I actually do like wood, especially wood flooring. The beauty of minimalism is you can incorporate a lot of materials into the style without it losing its taste.

    Those two are very scandinavian in style. Very much something like my aunt's home actually.

    Wooden floor boards is a must, though mine need to be at least 100 years old, or self made. :D

    I dont think I could have one perfect house.

    One would be an apartment in NYC, London and Melbourne.

    The other would be a beach hut (think more mansion) on some tropical island maybe in Thailand.

    Conversely, I think people should put their "nightmare" homes, too.

    The most important room in house is the kitchen, and it has to be large and open-plan. This is a horrific kitchen.

    lack of light kills for me. Dingy homes = big no no.
