a dreamy space... that's also clean. :: CLOSED

Friday, August 1, 2014


i've mentioned before that both steve and i are huge fans of getting rid of.  i routinely go through my clothes and take inventory, "have i worn this in the last year?"  if the answer's no, good chance it goes in a bag to big brother or salvation army.  along with that, i'm trying to be ever more careful about what i bring into the house, particularly in terms of clothing and home decor.  i feel like i'm finally (am i late to the game?) getting a handle on just what my personal style is.  i suppose it changes all the time and what i loved at 22 isn't the same thing i'll love at almost 30, but i definitely have some regret-purchases i see when i look around the house.  shockingly, that white couch isn't one of them.  slipcovers and a really hot wash cycle rule.  don't fear the white couch!  

so, when dyson asked me to create a post around my dream space, it seemed like a no-brainer since living spaces are so on the brain lately since we are, as of today, a mere two weeks into our new home.  

here are a few things that are, in my humble opinion, crucial to your dream space.  that dream space doesn't have to be the dream space.  you know the one... the one you keep pinning and tallying up the budget for and getting really pissed when another mommy-blogger shows up with a house that includes so much of your dream checklist on instagram and you consider unfollowing them.  no?  just me?  (full disclosure: our new kitchen has white subway tile.  it was on my checklist and now i have it and please accept my apology.)

// baskets + storage in general: i am a big believer in everything having a place.  if the craziest, most chaotic of messes is contained in a cute basket, suddenly it's like, "oh, you sweet little mess you."  baskets!  they are worth their price in... twine?  weaving?  here are my favorites: 1 / 2 / 3

// a good cleaning system: we have hard wood floors in our new house and they're dark.  they're beautiful, they're pristine, they're dark.  and guess what else we have?  a yellow lab named gracie.  she sheds approximately 67,892 hairs a day, each one nice and white-yellow in color.  she merely has to walk through the freshly vacuumed room and i have to vacuum again.  so, i'm coming at this problem full-force and multi-sided (did that even make sense?).  a swiffer and a vacuum and me on my hands and knees with damp paper towels.  all three have happened and multiple times (no fewer than three times a day and that's the truth).  the plus-side?  a clean home.  the downside?  someone has to clean it and that be me most of the time.  this baby is sleek and small and would store no problem.  steve would be happy: no more tripping over vacuum cords that i basically have as permanent snaky fixtures running across our floors.  for real.  go you dyson DC59 motorhead, you go! (i mean, just check out that fancy name.  it should get the job done.)  some notes on it that i am finding really cool: it's cordless.  cordless!  it's lightweight so even the puniest of arms can reach it up to the ceiling to clean up there too (seriously--look at that petite lady doing it like it ain't no thang.)!  it's rechargeable!  rechargeable.  cause, if you're like us, once those batteries die... it's like the thing itself has died forever.  check out those features and more on their very slick site.

// music: having lovely background music is key.  my sister stopped by this morning and i had some really sophisticated french music playing on our sound dock and my coffee and i was draped in a pretty gray blanket and parker was holding grapes above my head while i plucked them from the vine with my teeth it was like suuuuch a normal scene at the hunt house.  like, "yeah, this is how i roll.  i was already doing this before you showed up."  here are my favorites to make you feel sophisticated: french cafe on pandora, etta james, theolonius monk

// a good candle: i'm currently working my way through a soy essential oils one that smells of lavender, orange, and vanilla.  it's from a local place however so... sorry.  but it's amazing how quickly a candle burning makes me feel like i have my life together even if our toilets are dirty and my hair hasn't seen a brush in three days.  "but... (wild flourishing of hands) smell my fabulous candle!!"

now for the nitty-gritty: 
this product is valued at $600 and one audience member from this campaign can win it.  just leave a comment telling me: what is your dream space and what dyson DC59 motorhead feature do you enjoy the most?

  1. My dream space is most definitely our great room. We just bought a nice new chair and a footrest and I LOVE sitting there and reading or working on my computer!!

    Best feature of the dyson would that it's rechargeable!!!! No cords are where it's at!

    ReplyDelete
  2. My dream space would be a huge window seat in front of a body of water.

    Best feature....it's cordless. That's just awesome.

    ReplyDelete
  3. my dream space is in Lyla's nursery (which, let's be honest, i totally decorated with myself in mind)...sitting in the glider, feet perched on the pouf, coffee in one hand, babe (preferably sleeping) in the other.

    and i have to agree: cordlessness is what brings all the boys to the yard.

  4. Dream space? A relaxing room with a large window seat to do some reading. I might add that a necessity is another room -- play room to allow me to enjoy my dream room!

    Cordless is awesome but floor to stair?! with a chocolate lab and the hair sitch? amen.

    ReplyDelete
  5. My dream space is now our living room...after the 1 yr old goes to bed and the toys are picked up! We recently took down the wood blinds we had and put up tall curtains. ~Completely~ changed the look in the room! Now I love to sit in the evenings and just stare out them as they face the west :)

    ReplyDelete
  6. My dream space would have perfect natural light, open clean space and beautiful simple decorations! I love that the Dyson is cordless and lightweight!

    ReplyDelete
  7. You don't even know how long I've wanted one of these! Since I failed to put it on my registry, that's when! We are about to move into a new house in Cali and I am so looking forward to the clean, open living space with huge windows all around... ie., my dream space. I would love to keep it sparkly clean with the 24 minutes of cleaning time on the battery! I don't own a vacuum and seriously need one with our cat and two kids. Pick me, pick me!

    ReplyDelete
  8. my dream space has natural light (something so lacking from my current space.... i'm wishing my 23 year old ignorant home-buying-self knew what mattered!) and comfort! an ottoman that encourages putting your feet up instead of a delicate coffee table. because... we all know our instinct is to put our feet up! and you totally had me cordless.

    ReplyDelete
  9. My dream space would be a spacious kitchen with light colors and lots of natural light. I'd have a large island to accommodate all of my cooking and baking, and the kitchen would open up to the family room so I could keep an eye on the littles while cooking. I love what I've read about this Dyson, but my favorite feature is the ease with which you can go from carpet to hardwood floors. My wood floors collect a lot of dust!

    ReplyDelete
  10. My dream space has lots of natural light, built in bookshelves filled to the brim with favorite books and whimsical accents that show off my family's character. A few favorite photographs mounted on the wall in some wannabe artsy arrangement. And a really, really comfy couch.

    ReplyDelete
  11. ahhh my dream space....I agree with everything you listed! Baskets for days, clean floors, good music and a good candle. Can't beat that. It's what I strive for. Favorite Dyson feature? Cordless! My vacuum sits out constantly and the cord is always in the way!

    ReplyDelete
  12. My dream space is a large airy kitchen with my battered old farmhouse table surrounded by family and friends! I love Dysons, they really do the job, and clean far better than any other vacuum I have used. I would love the cordless model!

    ReplyDelete
  13. My dream space is my bathroom, well more specifically my garden tub. Nothing better than a loooong, relaxing bath at the end of the day! I've never owned a Dyson, but I love that it can be used on different floor types. We've got carpet, hardwood and tile throughout our home so that would come in handy!

    ReplyDelete
  14. My dream room would be a large room with a fluffy rug and comfy chairs! It would be lined with bookshelves. I would love a Dyson that picks up dust on a wood floor!!

    ReplyDelete
  15. My dream space is our living room and I love the cordless feature (easily used on the car in the garage or squeezed into a tight corner).

    ReplyDelete
  16. My dream space at the moment is a QUIET one, away from loud apartment neighbors. And preferably with soft plush seating and a bookshelf that rivals the one in beauty and the beast. And maybe a fireplace?
    My favorite feature is the balance thingy. I look like an idiot trying to lug our vacuum around. This would be soooo nice.

    ReplyDelete
  17. Well, my dream space would be that white subway-tiled kitchen that you speak of. And I can think of two little boys that I'd like to attach the vacuum to so they can suck up the crumbs they drop everywhere they go, even if they aren't eating. It's an amazing anomaly unique to boys I think. I love that the vacuum is lightweight so it won't tip them over when it's strapped to them. I may or may not be joking.

    ReplyDelete
  18. My dream space would have huge windows, wood floors, PLENTY of great light and a sofa so comfortable that I never want to get up.

    My favorite feature (how to choose!) is that it's CORDLESS. DREAM vacuum.

    ReplyDelete
  19. My dream space is a library room... :) I would love that. My current, more realistic "dream space" is an organized place to put all the baby stuff we're going to be accumulating before we have our first baby in October.... neither is realistic in our teeny apartment lol.

    I love that this dyson can do hard floors AND carpet!

    ReplyDelete
  20. My dreams space is a great kitchen - one much bigger than the one I have in my small condo now. Love that this Dyson is cordless.

    ReplyDelete
  21. My dream space -- a white white kitchen with subway tile! (You knew that, though.) Love the idea of no cord for my toddler to unplug behind me.

    ReplyDelete
  22. My dream space is a cozy living room with a fireplace and access to an outdoors space. it would be filled with family and lots of snuggles! It's hard to pice ONE fave feature of the dyson. I love that it easily adapts to different floors and that it's CORDLESS!

    ReplyDelete
  23. I'm with you on the white subway tile in the kitchen. It would be so nice to get rid of the harvest gold countertop and half backsplash that we have now! The cordless and rechargeable aspect sound great. We have the opposite problem as you...black dog with light colored floors!

    ReplyDelete
  24. My dream space is a clean, bright, white office space. I love the compact and rechargeable aspect of the vacuum. Thanks!

    ReplyDelete
  25. I would love a little cottage just for me at the back end of our backyard! I love the "cordlessness" of this vacuum.

    ReplyDelete
  26. I love that they never lose suction. I've wanted a Dyson vacuum for years.

    ReplyDelete
  27. My dream space is a large yet still cozy kitchen with a huge island to sit at and sip coffee and browse cookbooks! I love that the Dyson is cordless and it looks so light for vacuuming stairs!

    ReplyDelete
  28. My dream space is light, bright, and cozy...and clean!! I love the Dyson's cordless feature and that it works on hardwood - both absolute necessities with a just starting to crawl 8 month old!

    ReplyDelete
  29. My dream space has natural light pouring (pouring!) in from indulgently-large windows. And coffee. Always coffee.

    As for the Dyson...the cordlessness. Really, did the question even need to be asked?

    And, thankyouverymuch, I am now suffering from an acute case of soy candle envy. Sigh.

    ReplyDelete
  30. My dream space is neutral with pops of bold color. A big white comfy couch with amazingly soft pillows and blankets. I love that the Dyson is a do-all. One stop shop for all rooms and surfaces.

    ReplyDelete
  31. My dream space is bright and open with lots of windows and natural light. And an air conditioner, must have an air conditioner. Best feature is definitely the cordless! I hate dragging the vacuum and it's crazy long cord out to get 3 minutes of cleaning done in the kitchen!

    ReplyDelete
  32. My dream space is our upstairs future Master suite. Our house is over 100 years old and has 1 bathroom on the ground floor, which also happens to be the only room with a door. I dream of a lovely old door with beadboard ceilings, wood floors, with cozy rugs behind it. I dream of a walk in shower, large closet, and a very large bed. Also I totally relate to the dogb hair and wood floors (husky and terrier on wood here). I would love a dyson and cordless in this large two story house would be awesome. We have high ceilings so the reach would be great too.

    ReplyDelete
  33. My dream space is one of those awesome old libraries that are filled to the brim with books and you need a ladder to get to the top shelves. The ladder runs on a sliding track (obviously) and there are always a few open books lying around. A big, comfy, leather chair (that is perfectly broken in) and a fuzzy blanket (that sheds - hence the need for the vacuum) would top it off! By far, the cordless feature is the biggest and best selling point!

    ReplyDelete
  34. My dream space is a beautiful wrap around porch with rockers and plants and bright colors. There would be a swing and a fun door mat. I dream of living in forest gumps house!

    My favorite feature is the cordlessness (That's not a word) either way, that's awesome!

    ReplyDelete
  35. i dream of an all white bedroom with lots of natural light and tons of layered textiles, preferably under a sloped ceiling. i'm not too far, my bedroom is already all white with natural light. still working on e textiles and sloped ceiling.
    Naturally, I need a dyson to keep all that white clean. I love that it's really powerful so it can get all those dog hairs!

    ReplyDelete
  36. Have you ever heard of the Edible Schoolyard? Well, my dream space would be a cozy, white (slip-covered and washed on a hot cycle ;) ) couch in front of a wall of window looking out onto that. Yes, please.

    And as for tracking in all that Edible Schoolyard dirt my toddler and I will track into the house after picking sun-warmed golden raspberries... = the Dyson Motorhead. I like so many things about it. The color! It's small and lightweight (my home is small and I'm a lightweight), but most of all (and I know this because a friend has a Dyson and I couldn't resist trying it) - it picks up everything! Dyson's are amazing.

    ReplyDelete
  37. I absolutely love dark hardwood floors, but they're just not practical for me with my borderline OCD cleaning :( Every time I see dog hair I'll just want to vacuum, especially with the Dyson. No wires? No bags? Yes, I'll be vacuuming all day long.

    ReplyDelete
  38. I dream of a white Kitchen! And my favorite feature? Cordless!

    ReplyDelete
  39. I love sun, comfy chairs, wood floods, and a touch of yellow and blues. Oh, and photographs, add such a personal touch. I love the Dyson's sleekness.

    ReplyDelete
  40. I kid you not, the other night S and I were watching tv and the commercial for that Dyson vacuum came on and S (being the domestic one in this relationship) was all, I NEED THAT IN MY LIFE. So I told him maybe he would get it for christmas (last year he asked for an ironing board. You cant make this stuff up). THEN just now (tonight) he was like, "i need to find this cordless vacuum" and i was all HEY bridget is actually giving one away on her blog, and was like, DID YOU ENTER? So here I am, sacrificial wife.

    Dream space: charming little house with all hardwoods, big windows, tons of natural light, high ceilings, garden.

    Stephen loves that it is cordless, and cleans on multiple surfaces, and other reasons I am sure but I blacked out.

    ReplyDelete
  41. My dream space would be a gorgeous white kitchen (so different from our current rental!) with an island and double ovens.

    Best feature of the Dyson? That it's cordless! We love our full size Dyson, but this would be great for quick clean ups!

    ReplyDelete
  42. My dream space is a house that doesn't have sawdust all over the floors and has some furniture in it. Sleeping on an air mattress in the middle of a small reno- not much fun.

    Love my Dyson multi-floor (still consider it one of the best investments I've ever made), but something to make cleaning the stairs easier would be nice! And even the car... oh that would really be useful.

    ReplyDelete
  43. My dream space would be open, with large windows, and hardwood floors, and filled with love :). Okay - and a professional grill/double-oven.

    My favorite aspect of the Dyson is the ability to do hard floors and carpets. I have that plus rugs!

    ReplyDelete
  44. dream space? anything near the ocean.

    the dyson i own is one of my happiest early-on-in-the-marriage purchases, that my mother-in-law bullied me into buying. but then, we got a german shepherd who ALSO sheds 60,000+ hairs a day and now that dyson is the biggest defense against people thinking our floors are carpeted with german shepherd hair.

    the best feature of that dyson, so beautifully photographed, is the pet hair thing. hands down.

    ReplyDelete
  45. Dream space, sunroom with bookshelves and cabinets below and windows to the ceiling. Softest couch with the most pillows as only other furniture. Best aspect of the dyson... Lightweight! Hate dragging around a heavy vacuum!

    ReplyDelete
  46. I want that Dyson! Cordless and lightweight? My dream vacuum. My dream space is an open, airy, clean and decluttered living room.

    ReplyDelete
  47. with a black lab who sheds as much as Gracie, my dream space is CLEAN and HAIR FREE! haha :) that extra suction would be KEY in getting all the hairs out from within my rugs.

    ReplyDelete
  48. My Dream Space is a place with lots of art on the walls, lots of books on the shelves and lots of laughter in the rooms. Love the Dyson!

    ReplyDelete
  49. My dream space is my living room :) I love that it is cozy and my family gravitates towards it to spend time together. I love that it is small and light! I have a small house so those are big sellers for me!

    ReplyDelete
  50. I just have to say that this is the least annoying and most engaging 'sponsored/giveaway post' I've ever read, so congrats for accomplishing the seemingly impossible.

    I love the cordlessness ...

    ReplyDelete
  51. Dream space would definitely involve tearing up our ugly old carpet and installing hardwood. Gahhhh!
    That cordless Dyson is amazing!! I have a yellow lab too and our poor old vacuum gets a lot of use - like dailyyyy.

    ReplyDelete
  52. my dream space is white, neutral, open, airy, with plenty of textured blankets to cuddle up in! i love how compact this vacuum is. there are four of us - we have two kiddos, a four and five year old, and live in a 2 bedroom 650 sq. ft. apartment. we need compact!

    ReplyDelete
  53. My dream space is light-filled, organized, but still homey with personal touches like travel mementos and favorite books. It's hard to pick just one favorite, so I'll go with three- I think I'd actually vacuum more since it's cordless, it's compact and we don't have all that much space, and it's powerful, which with hair-shedders like us, is key.

    ReplyDelete
  54. My dream space is our sunroom--lots of comfy seating, a fireplace and many windows. Our family loves to hang out and read together on cozy, rainy days. I live that the stain has the stair cleaning tool. We have a dog and carpeted stairs, and it is such a challenge to keep them clean.

    ReplyDelete
  55. My dream space is less is more. Which it so isn't right now (that's why they call it a dream, right?). I would like my space to be minimal because all the stuff in my head is so maximal. I wake up every day endeavoring to change my space but life gets in the way. Someday...til then I continue to dream.

    Fave feature....3X the power!!!!! I have had a love affair with cordless vacuums for 30 years but they all seem to fall short on power and longevity. I have a feeling this one wouldn't!

    ReplyDelete
  56. Lots of cozy couches with pillows and blankets. And I love that it's cordless!

    ReplyDelete
  57. Screened in porch with beautiful comfortable furniture and decor! No bugs no problem!! I love the lightness of the dyson! Functions and is pretty!

    ReplyDelete
  58. Anywhere in the mountains sounds about nice right now! A place with lots of light and clean lines!

    ReplyDelete
  59. I've always imagined having a huge library like the one in Beauty and the Beast. Rolling ladders and all! Of course I would need to have a big comfy chair next to a large window as a place to read all of those books.

    Favorite feature of the Dyson? It's cordless and so small! It can practically fit anywhere!

    ReplyDelete
  60. My dream space would include a lot of bookshelves with dusty old classics and a big cozy couch to sink into. And I love the dyson's cordless feature! And I love to clean!

    ReplyDelete
  61. dream space is a cozy living room with tons of light. and i love how small but mighty it is (:

    ReplyDelete
  62. dream space for me is a room lined with shelves filled with books, new and old, and a big comfy chair to read in. the best feature of the dyson you mention above is its size and that it is rechargeable!!!

    ReplyDelete
  63. My dream space would be my bedroom which would have two comfortable chairs for reading. When my husband and children are watching television, I can retreat to my dream space. I have the opposite dog-hair-wood-floor-color problem. I use the Swiffer with the vacuum to clean up the chocolate lab's hair from my white wood floors. I think the Dyson would do a better and quicker job. Cordless, cordless, cordless is the only way to clean.

    ReplyDelete
  64. dream space is a room where the tv cannot be heard. Cordless makes it very wantable.

    ReplyDelete
  65. The best feature of the vacuum is definitely the cordless part! I am so tired of dragging my vacuum around and finding plugs everywhere I go. My dream space would be a small cottage on the beach with hardwood floors throughout, oriental rugs, high ceilings with wooden beams, and white plank walls. :)

    ReplyDelete
  66. My favorite feature is the carpet to hardwood capability with more brush bar to get into the carpet. With two kids, two dogs and a cat, that's a must! My dream space is my family room with the large toy box to contain the kids toys which and a fire place to relax by!

    ReplyDelete
  67. My dream space would be a cozy sunroom to relax and read after the kids go to bed.
    The best features are the size and that it's cordless.

    ReplyDelete
  68. The one feature I like the most of the dyson DC59 motorhead that it is compatible with both hard wood floors & carpet and it seems that it would fit in pretty small spaces!

    My dream space is a space that I can call my own and take pride in. A space that has a spot for everything to be and I can find it when I need it. A place that prioritizes that value of quality over quantity and less is more. I will be moving into my first apartment as a "real" grown-up on my own soon and I am trying to emulate these things as I purchase, organize, and purge things as I prepare to move to really make this rental space in its' own way my "dream space".

    (Winning this would be quite a treat of a house-warming gift!)

  69. white subway tile: gimme.
    that vacuum: gimme (cordless and light = i might even use it!)
    dream space: bright, organized and cleeeeean!!

  70. dream space: view of the ocean
    choosing one feature I like the best of the dyson...cordlessness fabulousness

    ReplyDelete
  71. Dream space: one without winters! And beautiful hardwoods, of course ;)
    I love the cordless feature most- I can't remember a time I've recently vacuumed without cursing the cord!

    ReplyDelete
  72. Dark floors with no dog hair!!! Need that cordless vacuum!

    ReplyDelete
  73. The cordless feature is awesome! My dream space is a sunroom for a natural light studio!

    ReplyDelete
  74. oh please please replace our horrible $40 dirt devil from target!! you know you are getting old when getting a good vacuum makes you excited!

    ReplyDelete
  75. Oh I totally need one! My dream space is a garage. Room for cars and bikes and lawn mowers.....

    ReplyDelete
  76. my dream space is a big, open room with soft light, a big, squishy chair, a cozy throw blanket, fresh peonies, a beautiful candle burning where i can snuggle up with a good book and a mug of hot coffee.

    ReplyDelete
  77. My dream space is my kitchen but the black and white tile floor with the large windows make every spec of dust and pet hair visable. A dyson would surely solve that problem! Cordless and compact is my favorite feature!

    ReplyDelete
  78. My dream space would be one that is completely my own! I am planning to get married within the next year, but until that day comes I will be living with my parents. It might sound silly, but I absolutely cannot wait until I have a space of my own that I can clean and nest in! (Although I adore my parents and love being with them for the time being!) I love that this Dyson can clean both hardwood and carpeted flooring. It is a pain when you have to switch machines all the time between different spaces. The fact that it is cordless is a major plus, especially for those of us that are a bit clumsy!

    ReplyDelete
  79. My dream space is comfy and lived in with super soft leather chairs and a vintage velvet couch. It would also have no golden retriever hair balling up in the corners and under all furniture. We have a dyson vacuum already but we also have a 1yo who loves to chase the chord as we clean so the chord less feature is awesome.

    ReplyDelete
  80. We have a black lab with dark hardwood. We can definitely sympathize with the amount of hair we find everywhere. We especially love the hair bunnies that move around when the AC is on. Our dream space is an open concept kitchen/ family room filled with rustic decor and modern touches. Brown Leather couches, a soft rug on the floor and some sitting chairs for guests.

    ReplyDelete
  81. My dream space is an outdoor patio with ball lights hanging along the ceiling.
    Best feature is cordless for sure!

    ReplyDelete
  82. Dream space: Chair and a half, reading light, cold night, warm fire, blanket, good book
    Best feature: that it's a big and a small vacuum (both the big rooms and the car, etc)

    ReplyDelete
  83. First, love the cordless; no more little children unplugging it while you are running it. Second I love that it goes well from carpet to hardwood and vice versa.
    my dream space is currently my master bathrooom. It's clean, white, has pretty curtains and I can go there alone and breathe.

    ReplyDelete
  84. My dream space is my comfy couch with a good book and no interruptions, at least for an hour.

    ReplyDelete
  85. My dream space with a toddler, a babe on the way, and two dogs in our house here in the woods would be a space that cleans itself! When I started writing this I originally thought "a dream space would be one allllll to myself that always stays clean and where I can have aloooooone time!" but really, with a dog at my feet and a little boy snuggled next to me, I realized my dream space really does have to include my whole motley crew! Anyways, that beauty of a dyson with its sexy cordless self and LIGHTWEIGHTness would be INCREDIBLE to have!!!! Fingers crossed!!!!

    ReplyDelete
  86. My dream space would be organized and free of clutter. Love that the Dyson is cordless.

    ReplyDelete
  87. My dream space would be a big wrap around porch with lots and lots of ferns.

    I love that the Dyson is powerful enough to deal with all those plant bits that fall off along the way.

    ReplyDelete
  88. My dream space has lots of open space and is repells dog hair.

    My current vacuum is sitting in the middle of our living room and I stepped on eh cord on my way to the couch just now. Needless to say, the cordless feature would be my favorite part.

    ReplyDelete
  89. My dream space would be a pantry. I'd love to have everything organized and beautiful.

  90. It's like I've been waiting for this giveaway all my life! I LOVE my Dyson vacuum and ever since my aunt got this beauty, I've wanted it badly. The fact that it's cordless! And so lightweight? Score! My dream space is simply one that is inviting to others. I want others to feel welcome in my home, be it chicly or sparsely decorated.

    ReplyDelete
  91. My dream space: large rustic kitchen. Double oven, butcher block counter and to die for barn wood floors =)

    ReplyDelete
  92. my dream space that is a reality is our front room. we moved in 3.5 years ago, and i'm just now calling it done (it was empty and a "yoga room" but slowly, it's amassed couches! a coffee table! end tables! and now lamps!)... i love it.

    i love that the dyson is cordless :)

    ReplyDelete
  93. We are slowly building our dream spaces in our house. It is a process because we have been in the house less than six months. So far my favorite in the front porch and any room with my husband and our new dog.

    I have a family member that owns this vacuum and have looked at buying it...He tells me that cordless on steps is a real winner!

    ReplyDelete
  94. I would live in a proverbial haystack of dog hair if it weren't for my dyson vacuum. We have a love affair. But the tumbleweeds grow so quickly, I think this little cordless number is just the ticket. My dream space? A light-filled, warm, personal, and inviting space filled with the guilty fur-covered family members, and people with whom I love to share my home and time.

  95. my dream space would have a lot of windows for natural light. a beautiful view. open concept. huge kitchen. livable.

    I love that dyson can pick up our pet hair on the couch, cobwebs on the ceiling, crumbs under the high chair, sand by the entry, and everything else our boys track in.

    ReplyDelete
  96. dream space: some where quiet to read with great lighting and lots of shelves!
    dream dyson: portable/light and rechargeable - says this girl that is living with a corgi and a husband who loves that corgi but hates to vacuum.

  97. My dream house would be bright and clean with an open layout and lots of built ins. And I would kill for a wrap around front porch.

    That dyson is so sleek! I am always struggling to lug around my vacuum. I would willingly vacuum my buildings stairs with that bad boy.

  98. My dream house would include a three season porch. I love white walls, ceiling fans, and comfortable furniture with a nautical look.

    With a 5 month old golden and a move to the country, the Dyson would come in very handy. The incredible suction would help pick up the shedding baby fur, and also allow me to reach spiders in the corners. I've never seen so many spiders in my house.

  99. LOVE the sneak peeks of your new space :) My dream space has always been (and still is) a kitchen with a farmers sink. I just love the look of them. I want it. And my favorite part of the Dyson? Besides it's amazingness, I love that this one is cordless! I constantly get tangled up trying to shoo Toby out of the way while I vacuum.

    ReplyDelete
  100. I JUST added the Dyson DC59 to my "Wish List" Pinterest board. We are remodeling our home and when we finish, we'll have tile, hard wood and carpet. I would love to have this multi-surface tool to make cleaning up after our baby (and husband) a breeze.

    ReplyDelete
  101. I am more proud when people tell me how comfortable they feel in my house rather than how it is decorated. So my dream place is somewhere people like to gather.

    ReplyDelete
  102. I have a 2 year old and another baby on the way. My dream space would be one that our kids can play comfortably without my husband and I feel like we are being taken over by kid toys! We love our Dyson we received as a wedding gift but a cordless Dyson?!?! PLEASE let me win!

  104. I don't think my original comment showed up. Let me try again...

    I really need this vacuum! I also have dark wood floors and a big yellow dog and kids who love to scatter Cheerios everywhere. I hate lugging out our behemoth of a vacuum cleaner to do battle with the mess. This would make my life so much easier! My dream space would be a cottage on the beach with whitewashed plank floors, white walls, colorful cozy decor, beamed ceilings, and of course a cleaning lady. :)

    ReplyDelete
  105. also wondering -- where is that pillow from?!? I LOVE IT.

    DREAM SPACE: a cozy living room, fire going, curled up on the couch under a blanket with my husband and my son (walls of built in bookshelves would also enhance this dream)

    That dyson is awesome - the fact that it's cordless cinches it for me. And how lightweight it looks.I have a cat and a toddler and a husband who tend to leave a trail behind them wherever they go... I'm constantly pulling out my huge behemoth of a machine to pick up hair and crumbs.

    THANKS!

  106. I have 1 dog, my roommate has 1 dog and also 3 cats. My dream space would be one with no pet hair. I seriously have to keep the handheld vac in living room and use it several times a day. I'm all down for this Dyson!

    ReplyDelete
  107. And I forgot to say that the cordless feature is my jam. HATE the cord! : )

    ReplyDelete
  108. b! i have been following your moving posts and can relate 100% because my husband and i are going through the exact same thing. we moved in this weekend and although i got the kitchen i have always wanted and a giant soak tub, what i am missing is a living room with hardwood floors and vaulted ceilings. and maybe a floor to ceiling fireplace. i have more space in this house and would love a vacuum without a cord to make it easier running around the house.

    ReplyDelete
  109. Family in a cozy, comfy room playing a game. All three dogs at our feet. Lots of laughter!

    I have dark hardwoods as well and with three dogs it's a constant struggle to keep clean. I would love to have the kids help clean with a amazing device that doesn't have to be plugged in!

    ReplyDelete
  110. My dream space is light and airy and clean! I think the DC59 Motorhead looks like an awesome choice considering I have a 5 month old who is about to start crawling!

    ReplyDelete
  111. My dream space is Belle's library in Beauty and the Beast. Floor to (vaulted) ceiling built-in bookshelves packed with books, a ladder on rails to slide around and climb to reach hidden treasures, comfy chairs for reading, and HUGE windows for sunlight and scenery. Of course, one would need something like the DC59 Motorhead to keep a dream space like that clean ;) The cordless-ness, lightweight and powerful suction make it perfect for me!

    ReplyDelete
  112. I love that it is light! My dream space is the basement that my husband and I are building together!

    ReplyDelete
  113. My dream space is my home! It is not fancy or big but everything I place into it comes from a place of love. I too have a yellow lab and can sympathize with the incessant hair picking up - but I LOVE my Johnny Cash and can't imagine life without him. As for the dyson - you had me at cordless. Thanks!

    ReplyDelete
  114. My dream space is clean, cozy, and dark. I love that it is compact and lightweight!

  115. My dream space is cozy and inviting. It's one of those places where guests come over and they never want to leave! As for the Dyson, the cordless-ness and strength are perfect for someone with long black hair that sheds like crazy! :)

    ReplyDelete
  116. OMG, that thing sounds Amazing and no cord for the WIN, I need that in my life!!

    Dream space....a beautiful open kitchen with lots of space for entertaining and open to the rest of the house!

    ReplyDelete
  117. Definitely love Dyson! We have one now, but to be honest we stole it from my parents two years ago. They now have someone who cleans their house and she brings her own vacuum! Dream space is definitely a clean, uncluttered area that is homey with always freshly baked cookies on the counter! :)

    Best thing would be having our own vacuum! AND space saving!

    ReplyDelete
  118. My dream space is wherever my family is. And considering one part of my family is a little black furry nugget who has a tendency to get kitty litter all over the place, my favorite aspect of the Dyson is the fact that it'll take care of my sweep-the-floors-at-least-twice-a-day-or-walk-around-with-litter-stuck-to-your-feet ritual. Thanks for the terrific giveaway!

    ReplyDelete
  119. Having 2 Siberian Huskies in our household my dream space would be one that's dog hair free! My favorite feature of the DC59 is that it's cordless and light - easy to get out quickly to do a quick dog hair clean up before guests come over!

    ReplyDelete
  120. My dream space is a clean, warm and inviting home that can get dirty with crumbs and whatnot on the floors from dinner parties and cocktail parties and that can then be cleaned up easily the next morning!

    And oh my gosh... a vacuum that can hang up on the wall while plugged in? A dream.

    ReplyDelete
  121. thanks for the giveaway! I'm getting married next year so a new vacuum cleaner would be a great addition to our new home. My dream space is when I am with my fiance. Cheezin, I know. But we've been long distance longer than I care to admit; it's safe to say we're both ready to fix that.

    oh, and a cordless feature vacuum cleaner sounds magical. :)

    ReplyDelete
  122. My dream space is one with lots of light, space for friends, music and books everywhere!

    ReplyDelete
  123. Cordless... did you really say cordless?! My 500 square feet of apartment home are drooling at the sound of that! My dream space is a cozy corner and a stack of books... maybe a chai latte if we're getting really fancy!

    ReplyDelete
  124. My dream space is an open kitchen/living room, with a reading nook and lots of family space!

    Favorite feature: the way it can clean stairs and vents!

  125. My dream space would be to have a huge whirlpool tub next to a big window looking out onto a beach. I think the cordless part is the coolest!

    ReplyDelete
  126. My dream space would have repainted walls and pictures hanging on them! I love the size of the Dyson.

    ReplyDelete
  127. love the fact that its cordless, seems too good to be true! my dream space would definitely be outdoors (probably backyard area) with lighting, pizza oven and swimming pool

    ReplyDelete
  128. Stop it! You're giving away a Dyson? It's funny, the older I get the more appealing and envy-evoking a vacuum becomes. Ohhh adulthood, I'll never understand you! Anyway, I love love that this vacuum is cordless and light weight (without sacrificing quality and suction power). It would be perfect to clean my dream house which consists of a big, leather restoration hardware couch, wood floors (maybe even painted white), perfectly curated book shelves, a fluffy, white bed, pretty potted plants, and raw wood coffee table. Gahhh!

    ReplyDelete
  129. my dream space is filled with natural light! it would have bright whites, pinks, yellows, pale greens, oranges and teals in pops of color around the space. ideally, it would be an indoor space outside so i could enjoy the trees and flowers and the breeze. oh, but there would be no bugs. it would have a comfy white couch and always smell like anthropologie :) my favorite feature of the dyson dc59 (other than that it's pink!) is the cordless feature. i've tripped one too many times on my current vacuum! also, it looks like it's not too heavy, which is really nice!

    ReplyDelete
  130. My dream space is one that is open and white with all the natural light in the world, but lots of rugs and blankets to make it cozy too. And I would KILL for the cordless feature. It's been such a bitch lugging around our shop vac to get the black dog hairs from the corners of our light hardwood floors

    ReplyDelete
  131. My dream space would be a reading room with natural light, wood flooring and the mostly comfy couch you ever did see. I love the light weight feature the most, I vacuum once a day with my two dogs and it's no fun to lug around.

    ReplyDelete
  132. my dream space would be light, bright, clean and full of books and lounge chairs. I love that this is cordless, it would be so much easier to clean

  133. Dream space-big windows, comfy furniture, always clean (w/o me having to clean it ��), family around. Loooooove that the Dyson is cordless & lightweight!

    ReplyDelete
  134. My dream space would be anywhere with my family that is NOT in Midland, Texas as we are currently. Somewhere in the mountains would be a dream for sure. & that cordless aspect is pretty sweet. This would really help me with life, for certain.

    ReplyDelete
  135. Fresh breeze through windows with a comfty couch and rug on hardwood floors. The rug being so deep you can sink your toes into it. A wood burning fireplace, exposed brick and wooden beams for the ceiling. I definitely agree about the candle, pumpkin spice is usually my favorite. But the best feeling of a dream space is settling into it when the house has just been cleaned, the fridge is stocked and the laundry is finished. The 24 minute charge for cordless cleaning would be amazing for achieving those relaxing moments of soaking in a dream space.

  136. I love nice clean lines, no dog hair, and lot of natural light.

  138. oooh my goodness. pomeranian plus dark wood floors = we're in the same dog hair boat. i would love something that not only picks up the hairs but also the dust, so i don't have to go back and swiffer after vacuuming (like i do now)

    and my dream space? cozy but clean. natural light, greys, candle burning, andrea lindsey on pandora (if you love french music, she's a must check out!), cable knit throw on my lap and a giant cup of french vanilla coffee. oh, it can be lightly raining outside too. cause that just sets the mood :)

    ReplyDelete
  139. Ohmygoodness. What a lightweight powerhouse, you mean I can actually lift the thing to clean my fan blades? (I might actually clean them more often then!) As far as rentals go, I think I'm living in my dream space: good windows, wood floors, high ceilings, quaint 1920s kitchen fixtures (though I do fantasize about having a dishwasher and not lugging my vacuum upstairs from the shared basement... this little guy would eliminate one of those problems...)

    ReplyDelete
  140. My dream space encompasses the kitchen and family room; has great flow, hardwood flooring, clean lines.

    I LOVE that the Dyson works on hardwood AND carpet. Been looking for a vacuum that would pick up my dear Duggan's chocolate lab hair! :-)

    ReplyDelete
  141. I love that the dyson DC59 motorhead is versatile! We have hardwood floors and rugs and carpets...and two dogs...a toddler...and a messy husband. I vacuum constantly and this would save me so much time and effort. We have a regular Dyson now and I love it.
    My dream space would be a cozy, lived in family room for the whole family...with clean floors!

    ReplyDelete
  142. My dream space is a big bright loft bedroom with a huge soft bed. I love that the dyson motorhead is cordless! THat would be amazing!

    ReplyDelete
  143. Dream space.....a loft with concrete floors, exposed brick walls, my boucherouite rug from Morocco, our family's green tufted sofa, bookshelves filled with my husband's books & trinkets from his travels, & a wall filled with photographs of my four children & the memories we've made.
    Favorite feature on the Dyson....most definitely, the fact that it's cordless. :)

    ReplyDelete
  144. Dream space: a cozy couch anywhere with my six week old baby girl asleep on me with my husband at the other end. Favorite Dyson feature: it's cordless!? This would definitely help me conquer our dog hair covered carpeted stairs.

    ReplyDelete
  145. Dream Space: Our back screened in porch, in the fall, with the fireplace going...glass of wine with the hubs :)

    Fav Feature: That is customizes to clean stairs, car, floor, etc and Cordless!

    ReplyDelete
  146. Floor to ceiling bookshelves, a window seat and lots of light are essentials in my dream space.

    And that vacuum... swoon... I would have to say my favorite feature is the cordlessness. I am always getting tangled up in my cord and this would be a dream come true.

    ReplyDelete
  147. The hammock out back under the cherry trees. I love that this Dyson is compact and cordless- a major bonus when cleaning lots of stairs.

    ReplyDelete
  148. Oh! My dream space is a swinging bed on a screened in porch, with a vintage lamp, and a glass of wine! Oh and a great station playing on pandora!

    ReplyDelete
  149. My dream space would be my outside patio with a hammock and a light breeze and no interruptions. Best feauture of the Dyson: it's lightweight and sleek! Means easy to store in a hosue with no storage closests- eek, yes you read that correctly. NO closets. Lord, help us.

    ReplyDelete
  150. My dream space is a big open kitchen/dining area where my family amd friends could gather while meals are being made...and, I would have a dishwasher!!! I like that the dysonn can be used on multiple surfaces. Such a great giveaway!

    ReplyDelete
  151. My dream space is big comfy couches on our deck to enjoy our trees in every season - unless NJ has another winter like last year!!
    That dyson would be so handy for perpetual crumbs under my sons' spots at our kitchen table. Much easier than pulling out and putting back our central vacuum!

    You look so cute!!

    ReplyDelete
  152. I dream of a screened-in porch. It would be delightful. And my favorite feature of this Dyson is that, unlike my current vacuum, it seems to be both lightweight and functional. I guess that's actually two features.

    ReplyDelete
  153. my dream space is open, airy, lots of white. the best feature on the Dyson is that it's cordless for so many reasons!

  154. Dream space would be a library in my house. I have a front room that is empty (we moved in in the fall and then I had baby #3 soon after and well, haven't had a lot of time to paint and furnish the extra room)...but I'd love to make it a library. I love that this Dyson is cordless. It would make cleaning the car, which is ALWAYS a mess, a lot easier!

    ReplyDelete
  155. My dream space would be a big kitchen! Love the cordless feature on the vacuum!

    ReplyDelete
  156. dream space- lots of windows and sunlight with seating for family and friends. Love the microscopic dust picking feature. At the rate my dog sheds he should be naked.

    1. I got so distracted by the vacuum, I forgot my dream space: a floor plan that has rooms open to the kitchen. I want to see my babies play while I cook! I would love to chat with guests as I cook, but that's tricky from a galley kitchen.

      Delete
  161. My dream space would be a family room with huge windows opening up to a huge backyard. My favorite thing about this vacuum is probably that its cordless. I hate having to hold the cord and trying to vacuum around it!

    ReplyDelete
  162. My dream space would be a tiny house (which we're working on) - which makes the vacuum ideal because it's small, compact and multi-functional, which is pretty much key to anything that's going inside our tiny house!

    ReplyDelete
  163. Dream space: just redid master bath and it's pretty dreamy. No more brass, no more giant ugly tub (yes, just a shower now), no more ugly tile, no more weird ceiling fan. I love the rechargeable feature and it being lightweight since I too am a lightweight.

    ReplyDelete
  164. My dream space is a well decorated master bedroom. Big king sized bed, nice vanity, gorgeous wood furniture. The feature I love the most about the dyson is that it is lightweight yet very powerful. I need something that I can clean the stairs with easily and not break my back in the process!! I tried this baby out in bed bath and beyond and it was very powerful and lightweight!! I also love the boosting feature, it would be great for hard to clean spots!

    ReplyDelete
  165. My dream space would probably be a man cave with lots of big leather couches and a large screen tv. I'd like the dyson because it is cordless and lightweight. My wife loves her regular dyson but it is too heavy to lug up the stairs and she cant use it to clean the stairs. This would be great.

    ReplyDelete
  166. it's lightweight. my old vacuum weighs a 'ton'.

  168. My dream space would be a clutter free yet cozy room with a comfy couch, lots of pillows and throws, and tons of candles. The perfect place to snuggle up with a good book!

    I love all the features of this Dyson, but especially how lightweight it is!

    ReplyDelete
  169. A white kitchen with black and white tile floors is my dream space. I love how lightweight the dc59 seems. No more lugging the full-sized one up the stairs!

  170. A library/atrium with bottomless coffee. Love how dyson is cordless and lightweight.

  171. My dream-space is our newly re-done kitchen + dining room! My husband and I spent a good portion of our summer working on it, and I'm so please with how it turned out (and to be rid of the nasty old linoleum and beige-tile-brown-grout countertops)! The Dyson would be an absolute godsend for helping keep the
    new slate floors looking clean...my favorite feature
    would have to be that it's cordless + lightweight...maybe the kids could even help vacuum up their endless messes!

    ReplyDelete
  172. With two cats, two dogs, and two little boys my dream space would be clean and fur free. A Dyson would definitely help with that!

    ReplyDelete
  173. My dream space is our screened porch with two couches and a hutch I painted lime green to display seasonal dishes, etc. A table and chairs sits on an outdoor rug that needs this lightweight Dyson to pick up the crumbs and dog hair!

    ReplyDelete
  174. My dream space is my big country kitchen with new flooring. We painted the cupboards this winter and the walls are a sunny yellow so there is not much left to make it perfect. Now if only i had a nice light vacuum to keep it clean. I found your blog though camp Patton and am enjoying the house keeping ideas.

    ReplyDelete
  175. My dream space is a beautiful breakfast nook with benches lining the window- we have 3 little boys 3 and under and love to always spend our meals together- as our family continues to grow, we hope to always share meals together in this special space! Love the cordless option!

    ReplyDelete
  176. My dream space would be an outdoor kitchen/living area. We love to spend time outside with our 2 kids and having that additional space would make it even more fantastic. I love that the Dyson is cordless and will clean hardwood along with carpet!

  177. That thing looks amazing! Looks so light and easy to use! I love spaces with white walls, tall ceilings and dark floors!

    ReplyDelete
  178. My dream space would be a covered front porch with a swing, in the country where I would read. Maybe a ceiling fan too ;) And definitely, the best thing about the vacuum is the cordless feature, and that it last 24min on one charge. I bought a dirt devil cordless, that lasted only 10 minutes on one charge and died completely after 6 months! Should have went with Dyson!!!

    ReplyDelete
  179. My dream space would be a cottage-like kitchen with open windows, curtains blowing in the breeze and a large dining room with family seated all around. Cozy, charming and inviting...ahh one day!!
