I once again find myself drifting off into one of my favourite daydreams...
Living in a house with a hundred rooms!
Buckingham Palace has 775 rooms.
A hundred is nothing! ;)
"What would I with a hundred rooms?" you ask.
Let's see if I can fill them.
Ready, set, go!
First of all, each family member would have their own personal suite of rooms.
The kids would have their own bedroom, bathroom, playroom, study and media room. (10)
My husband and I would share a bedroom, of course, and have our own bathroom, dressing room and study. (7)
Then there would be several guest suites for the hoards of family and friends that would be dying to visit us in our new mansion.
Each suite would have a bedroom, bathroom and sitting room.
I think 12 guest suites should do (that would accommodate both sides of our family). (36)
A kitchen, larder, cellar (3)
A breakfast room, family room, family dining room (3)
A formal lounge and formal dining room (2)
An outdoor barbecue room (1)
A family media room, a family play/games room (2)
Two sitting rooms (2)
A formal entrance and cloak room (2)
A laundry, three separate toilets (one on each floor) (4)
A sewing room with separate fitting room (2)
A two-storey library with a secret room behind a bookshelf (thanks Sarah for that idea!) (2)
A music room (with a baby grand piano) (1)
A gym (1)
A salon (for my private hairdresser and masseur) (1)
Four huge store rooms (one each) (4)
A viewing room on the roof (to take in the spectacular view) (1)
An indoor swimming pool with sauna and three dressing rooms and bathrooms (8)
A rooftop bar, two change rooms and bathrooms (for the rooftop swimming pool and spa) (5)
An indoor/outdoor garden room (1)
A workshop (1)
A 10 car garage (1)
And that, my friends, is one hundred!
It might look a little like this...
Surely, surely, there would be enough space to put everything away in this place!
Okay, enough daydreaming.
I'm off to tidy some of the clutter.
Wish me luck!!
PS Our current house has 11 rooms. How many does yours have?
PPS And don't ask me how I would manage to clean such a massive house. I'd have a team of housemaids, of course! :D
