  1. tammy says:

    i’m gonna need a bigger house.

  2. This is awesome! Imagine all of those options in the one house 🙂

  3. Always, Geraldine says:


  4. I want all of it in my home! 🙂

  5. Preeti says:

    Amazing Stuff !!

  6. Coach Carol Mazur says:

    These requests will be coming in to real estate agents everywhere!

  7. This list is cool beans. They all make sense to me (every single one). GENIUS!!!

  8. damn, and i thought i knew what i wanted in my next place. Very cool, the one thing that really caught my eye for some reason was the staircase that you can walk through. oh and the door knob to set your heat and ac off, very dope. nice post!

  9. nylonliving says:

    I know people withe underground spiral wine cellars, stairs you can walk under and staircase bookshelves. In central London, space is precious and these are useful ideas!

  10. I just have to say WOW !!! Fantabulous!!!

  11. Bebekoh says:

    I know my house wouldn’t be big enough but i like the Fridge-enveloping pantry, the library staircase / slide and the built-in drying rack.. Genius!

  12. […] Shouldn’t every door be a secret Ping-Pong table? […]

  13. jacquie says:

    What a great creative mind you have! I hope my son is just as creative in his entrepreneurship. Keep showing us your new ideas, I would love to see more!

  14. Melitta Holcombe says:

    Very cool ideas, love all the water features, especially the swim pond!

  15. Cardigan says:

    While most of these are awesome, I call BS on #34. Look closely. The lips of the stairs would prevent that “stair door” from coming down. What we’re really looking at is just another flight of stairs going up. Besides, if it weren’t that, the stairs on the other sides of the banisters would go nowhere.

  17. Elaine Santangelo says:

    When I am a billionaire, sure. But the divided tub does not make sense to me because if lovers want to take a bath together, they don’t really want it divided. Just sayin’

  18. peter says:

    I am a contractor and am available to install any of the necessities. Might be a pit pricey buy, Hey! Necessity IS necessity.

  19. alfie says:

    An impressive share, I just given this onto a colleague who was doing a little analysis on this. And he in fact bought me breakfast because I found it for him.. smile. So let me reword that: Thnx for the treat! But yeah Thnkx for spending the time to discuss this, I feel strongly about it and love reading more on this topic. If possible, as you become expertise, would you mind updating your blog with more details? It is highly helpful for me. Big thumb up for this blog post!

  20. jayden says:

    Great blog post. Its useful information.

  21. Emily Witt says:

    Reblogged this on A Keyboard and an Open Mind and commented:
    Holy crap, I need all of these things. When I write the Next Big Thing and have millions flooding in…

  22. pip says:

    will never have the money but definitely helps you dream

  23. […] a follow up to my last blog post, I figured I’d stick to the BuzzFeed format and re-blog another one of their posts called 22 […]

  24. sarsrose says:

    Wow these are fabulous!

  25. john says:

    To keep a house like that clean, would require an army of maids…

    • Raquel Vertucio says:

      With a big house like that you have be a millionaire and yes you will need a lot of maids for the upkeep. I can only dream BIG. Yet who knows? Dreams do come true.

  26. Chris says:

    That staircase doesn’t lift up, it’s fixed. It’s still a very nice design though.

  27. Bekkie says:

    Those glitter stairs are in the Swarovski shop in Paris, I have a picture of me sat on them.

    • Plinerd says:

      I was thinking those would really be hard to walk up/down if you’re totally drunk or delirious/dizzy from the flu or something. LOL. Very pretty, though. Makes sense to be at the Swarovsky shop. Cool

  28. David Bunyau says:

    I thought I need a swimming pool at my backyard but it is too expensive to maintain one. So, I’d rather go to the public pools or the beaches for a dip.

  29. Rebecca E says:

    My mom has the pond pool!

  30. John Doyle says:

    Obviously it’s mostly tongue-in-cheek. Taking the mickey out of the Affluent generation.
    Just the same a few ideas can work. My favourite is N018 the pond -pool. That makes eco sense.

  31. […] wird es dabei vermutlich nicht dazu kommen, dass ich unser Haus mit einer dieser Ideen ergänze. Leider. Ich möcht doch fast […]

  32. I like the stained glass door and the pantry surrounding the fridge. The rest of it is just too over the top conspicuous consumption.

  33. Sheena says:

    I want this house

  34. Thorn says:

    Perfect for the thrill seeking overachiever that can’t swim.

  35. […] article is a re-blog. These are awesome things to have in your homes! Click here for Original […]

  36. love them but you need lots of cash for any of these

  37. CARL says:

    “””””” FANTASTIC””””

  38. gail says:

    Let’s not forget….”live simply, so that others can simply live” some of this stuff is way too outrageous for average people but I do like the ideas that are simple and not extravagant like the built in dishrack and the pingpong table.

  39. Alberto Ramos says:

    While it would make for a great entertainment home. I just wonder what the upkeep and taxes on a house like that would be. The water bill alone would be a fortune.

  40. nashkay says:

    Reblogged this on Kayleigh's Blog and commented:
    These are cool and such fantasy house items 😉

  41. Raquel Vertucio says:

    With a house that extravagant you will not have to worry about the bills. You will have plenty of money.

  42. I loved everything and would love it all, but so many people I know have died lately or have Cancer, that I realise the best thing in life is your HEALTH not these material things.

    • Mr Lee says:

      Surely if you were” terminal”! You would wish to be surrounded by such imaginary and “beautiful things” .(regardless weather or not you could use them ?) or maybe frustration would prevent ? (catch 22).

  43. Natasha Haskell says:

    Great ideas some I had thought about my self , just need to put in to action x

  44. We designed and supplied the lighting for the underground wine seller item No 5 and the bathroom stars No 28.

    That must make Flairlight the most desireable lighting one can have!!!

  45. Mr Lee says:

    O 2 have plenty spending pennies .

  46. Isthma says:

    34 sounds awesome, but that isn’t what the picture is showing (it is a single upper staircase which splits in to 2 middle staircases and the reunites in to a single lower staircase. You can see this by looking at the edge of the steps). Don’t get me wrong, it’s be awesome if this was a lift up staircase, but I have to wonder about stability issues.

  47. Bob says:

    BS on the last one – that is all photo-shop. The pool slide is coming from no-where, and the angle of the slides going from land to water is all wrong. It’s a cool idea, but totally fake.

  48. JUDY MARTINEZ says:


  49. Sabrina Johnson says:

    This is a great list is there anyway we could get the name or designers of some of the products that were shown. I know Susan Jablon did the bathroom with the glittery beach tile. Thank You!!!!! I love EVERYTHING!!!!

  50. Joe says:

    What’s with all the fucking capital letters?

  51. Amy Jones says:

    im pretty sure i need all of these things right now..

  52. Bobbie Riplie says:

    Only for the rich and famous

  53. swapmolly says:

    Id never leave the house

  54. Love them – best one i’ve seen isn’t on here though – stairs which are actually drawers – loads of storage 😀 x

  55. laurawagner71 says:

    Sleepover room!

  56. MANVI JAYARAM says:

    Very nice to be imagined.

    To quote others, “Wow!” There are some very cool things here, the hammock loft and bookcase in the stairway!, but it also shows some people have just way too much money. Thanks for the exquisite diversion.

    Wow this is the best of the best! You really have vision Russell ,

  67. Louis Warfield says:

    34 Is not a lifting staircase. Where the “staircase” comes in contact with the landing it is too wide to be able to pass the tread molding on the right and left. It looks more like the underside of a flight of stairs that go to the third floor. If you’ll notice on the right and left of the railings it appears that there are carpeted stairs going down.
