I have had this list for too long.
  1. Rooftop garden.
    B990ecc8 5189 4e02 971e f0d88144e50f
    With herbs and vine fruits, so I can tell my children to "go grab a few sprigs of thyme from the roof."
  2. Stairs with a slide.
    903a59c7 90ee 447a 87a1 01d6caf15d7f
    Going down stairs is a lot of work.
  3. Light switch and water faucet next to my bed.
    389a1484 bb2c 4b90 b4a5 8f03f824deb8
    This is a boring one but I hate when you're all snug in bed and you have to get up to turn off the light or get water before you sleep. Screw that.
  4. Secret rooms hidden in each bedroom.
    13247dab d175 4160 9883 ebf106f34655
    My friend had a secret playroom behind a bookcase in his house and even though there was only a blanket and some old toys inside, it was the coolest thing ever. I want my kids to have that. These would also be useful in case of Nazis.
  5. High, interesting ceilings.
    9b3b3b9d 4468 479c 8f6d d262b6e34a03
    I think there should be more ceiling art in the world. Painted skies, murals, patterns, whatever--just make it feel like I'm in Hogwarts.
  6. The perfect reading nook.

    Duh.
  7. One of those bridal shop-style mirror areas with a pedestal.
    26b1f624 387f 4a38 9543 21d8d4644369
    I have no idea what you call these, but they're in most stores with fancy clothing. You stand on a pedestal and look tall and beautiful and can see yourself from a bunch of different angles. I want that.
  8. Bath overlooking the sea.
    371dea60 3721 4116 af1a 485ad72ba563
    In this scenario, there's a huge window looking out over the ocean that I can see out of but no one else can see into.
  9. Bedroom or study overlooking a forest.
    30e2b623 6cca 4a50 b66f 007f4677f2c9
    I realize this is tricky in conjunction with the last one. Work with me here, it's a dream house.
  10. A wall of records and a big ol' record player.
    D58eee34 a937 4923 9aee b421effce151
    I like records as art. They are underutilized in decor.
  11. Chutes.
    66eb7678 4af8 4477 a8f1 d8b235be476a
    I was always resentful of my mom for not installing laundry chutes in our house. I want those, I want a compost chute, I want a recycling chute, I want all kinds of chutes. ALL KINDS.
  12. A stained glass window.
    35c4caee 40af 43e4 a557 1c1f56848b18
    Why don't more houses have stained glass murals?? They are so cool!!
  13. A circular library with a wheeled ladder.
    05fe6e5e eddd 47a7 9a91 83713d00abb1
    If I don't feel like Belle, I'm not interested.
  14. Tortoise. Courtyard.
    379a2a0c 65bf 44cf 8161 a8d87e76d734
    Ok this one is the weirdest. I want a large glass encased courtyard with giant tortoises lumbering around it. My goal would be for a "Land Before Time" vibe--I would adopt the tortoises as babies and then they would grow up to lumber around, chewing lettuce near my ankles while I read fantasy novels on a wooden bench next to them.
  15. THIS.
