I want a small place, with a little backyard. I wouldn't mind living in a low-rise apartment or a townhome, as long as it's in a quiet neighborhood (down a little quiet lane would be ideal).
I want windows, and I want one super comfortable and slightly bulky earth-tone sofa bed by a huge window in one of the rooms. The rest of the room should be white. I would like light wood floors and wooden cabinets. Each room can have a different color and theme -- but I'm not that picky, as long as it's not black. Hopefully I won't buy a lot of stuff, and hopefully people won't give me stuff, so the setup will be a bit minimalistic. I want every piece of furniture, cutlery, pot, pan, bowl, cup, mug to have an identity. And I want weird useless contraptions in some of the rooms, like light switches that do nothing, cabinets that need ladders, etc.
