The Ultimate House According to Pinterest

What a dream home really looks like…according to Pinterest.

One of the fun parts of Pinterest is the ability users get to dream big.

Let’s be serious…if Pinterest were real life, we would all be dressed in designer clothing, cook like Giada De Laurentiis, plan a royal wedding like Kate and William, have a home that looked like Martha Stewart decorated it and still have enough time in the day to complete even one DIY project that has been on our list of things to try since the spring.

But that’s what makes Pinterest so unique. It’s the place to be for dreamers, and dreaming of a perfect home is something that millions do everyday regardless of whether they are pinning their dreams on Pinterest or not. So we wondered…if we took the most repinned photos from our boards what would the ultimate house actually look like?

Take a look!

The outside of the home would look something like this:

The Ultimate Home

The Northwest craftsmanship of this expansive home won the hearts of nearly 400 people.

Open the doors and walk into this beautiful foyer:

The Ultimate Home Entry

From the gorgeous double staircase to the elegant simplicity of the chandelier, it’s no wonder this entry was a fan favorite.

This is what the “ultimate” backyard looks like:

Any backyard with a fireplace is over the top awesome. But, add in a beautiful stone gazebo and that is backyard heaven!

Were you wondering if the ultimate home comes complete with a pool? Well of course it does!

The Ultimate Pool

Four 20 acre parcels of privacy makes this pool in Bellevue, WA the ultimate in private resort living which is why it was also featured in our post 7 Drool Worthy Pools.

It would be tough not to wake up in a good mood in this sunny bedroom:

This bedroom was an obvious choice with an abundance of natural light and beautiful views.

It’s no wonder this bathroom is one of our favorite pins of all time:

Can you imagine stepping into this tub to relax after a long day?

The kitchen is the central hub of a busy home, and this one is a pure beauty:

This open gourmet kitchen is just as beautiful as the view it frames of downtown Aspen.

A great living room is essential for homeowners who love to entertain:

 No words needed.

No need to go to the movies when you can have a home theater like this:

Shouldn’t every home come with one of these? (snacks included!)

For those lucky enough to work from the comfort of their home:

Ultimate Home Office

 Whether you need to work from home or want to cozy up in front of the fire, this home office is a luxurious spot to escape from the rest of the house.

You can do this too! Pin photos of your ultimate dream house using pictures from and tell us about it. We may choose your “dream house” as one to feature in future blog posts.
