Dream Home Dreaming

*Update*
We've finally broken ground on our mountain dream home! Can you believe it? Even more surprising, we actually managed to work a good chunk of this list into our actual design.

Original post:

Sexy Nerd wants to move up building our dream home to yesterday. I still don't know what I want though! Yes, it's difficult to decide on things like paint colors, flooring, and appliances. My problem is a bit worse.

Should we build one of those adorable 500 square feet mini houses? A (budget-friendly) mansion? A charming stone cottage?

Ultra-modern??

The internet makes it easy to find great design ideas for building our dream house. The downside is that all my favorite photos combine to make an overpriced, mismatched conglomeration.

According to my Pinterest account, my dream house has:

...a dramatic front entrance...

 ...a charming brick fireplace...

...this eye-catching wall of mirrors...

...stone accents like these...

....a copper apron sink...

...a floor-to-ceiling window...
(Though perhaps the bathroom isn't the most appropriate place for this.)

...a quatrefoil ceiling in the master bedroom...

...a brick ceiling inside the kitchen...

...a curved floor in the guest bathroom...
(But with shorter cabinets and different tile that continues all the way to the door.)

...the cutest little writer's nook...
(No writer's nook. I'm pretty sure this is why I haven't finished my novel yet.)

...this ceiling...
(How did they even create this?)

...a cobblestone floor like this for the patio...
(And maybe inside the house too?)

 ...one of these rooftop tower dealies...
(Rooftop tower dealies is so much more fun to say than cupola. Try it.)

...a fountain on our rooftop deck...
(Can't have a fountain on the ground with the bears, after all.)

...this brick barrel ceiling inside the dining nook...

 ...a view straight into the backyard when you step through the front door...

...acid stained concrete floors in a shade like this...

...metal accents like this...
(But with nice crisp corners.)

...these windows!

What do you think? Can all my photos be merged into just 1 house? Are the design gods going to strike me down?

Sexy Nerd is ready to build, but based on my saved photos, our house fund is going to need at least a couple (dozen) more years of padding.
