Street of dreams

I went to the street of dreams with my sister tonight. It's a Pelesky girls tradition. We've been ogling houses, furniture, and decorations we can't afford since the beginning of time.



OK, twist my arm. I would take this kitchen.



And because I'm feeling generous, I will take this bar for Steve for the basement, too.



I wasn't too impressed with the bedrooms this year. I see better at Furniture Row. Amber mentioned how impractical and pointless these curtains are. I agree completely.



There are very few things in life I wouldn't do for a flat top stove. No, I don't cook anyway, but I do clean the trays and the burners of sizzled up noodles and sauce that goes astray. I hate that I can never get the color back from black to silver no matter how hard I try. No, not even with a Mr. Clean eraser. And the next day, inevitably, something drops into the tray again. Murphy's law of the stove, that's how it runs around here. So yes, I'll take a cooktop, too.



Who has a perpetually set table? Rich people, apparently. If I kept plates out like that, I would have to dust them. I have enough to dust as is with my surplus of dark brown furniture. Which, apparently is in this year according to Street of Dreams.

i went to street of dreams while you were in washington...

i hated the dummy panel curtains, there were in every house.

i also think it is interesting what people choose when they are building a million dollar house. if i were spending a million dollars on a house, i wouldn't buy any of those houses.

but i think i am too practical for a million dollar house anyway...

since my dad is a carpenter and has done street of dreams houses in the past it takes a lot to impress me. my dad has done houses where the staircase railing alone was a million dollars.

i agree that flat top stoves are easier to clean but i have dreams of a 6 burner viking with the built in grill panel.
