This post is brought to you by Dyson… makers of a thing that makes my ‘functionality obsessed’ heart sing with joy.

Today we are going to do something a bit different here at the house of TDC, and we are going chat about our hopes and dreams – kind of. But more importantly we are going to give you amazing folks the chance to win a Dyson DC59 Motorhead vacuum!

Dyson DC59 Motorhead Giveaway from The Design Confidential and Dream Home Tech Creature Comforts to make your Life Easier

What do you think? Crazy good, right? So keep on reading friends… deets for the giveaway are at the bottom!

My Dream Space… Where everything is beautiful, utterly functional, and so full of amazing features and conveniences that leaving is never quite as welcome as staying. In a perfect world, every single item in my home would clean itself and have a place where it can be put away when not in use. Maybe the items I have would make life easier somehow or help me make decisions about what to have prepare in the way of meals that is both healthy and made from things we already have. There would be no waste that is not necessary and anything left over from consumption would automatically be put to use somewhere else without having to think twice about it.

Dream Home // 10 Home Tech + Creature Comforts that Make Life Better 1 - 5

1 a / b / c / d // 2 a / b // 3 // 4 a / b // 5

I am sharing a roundup of 10 items I think would make life better / easier / more beautiful and would perhaps save me money / time / frustration from the inevitable stuff.

There are certain unavoidable things in life, so making those things bearable by making them pretty or uber-functional is a great way to give them less of a negative impact on me.

But, Let us be real for a minute… I despise cleaning of any variety. Organizing on the other hand, now that is my jam. But keeping things hygienic and clean? Ugh, not so much. But, in a life with kids and dogs, cleaning up messes and disasters around the house is an everyday thing and a necessary evil of the most violent variety. Well maybe not violent, that might be a slight exaggeration, but certainly an attack on my personal well-being, which is basically the same thing, right?

Having a cordless, super powerful, handheld vacuum that can be quickly adjusted for length and purpose, and then hung back up on the wall out of sight to recharge and store? Well that my friends almost makes the task of cleaning up debris and collateral damage just a bit more tolerable. Thank you to the fine folks at Dyson for creating the Dyson DC59 Motorhead – I think I love you! I’m sure it’s mutual right? And not creepy in any way? Just say yes. I’m a mom of two boys with dogs (who are boys) and a husband and I’m entirely outnumbered over here in the ways of cleanliness and harmony. I could use a little love sent my way!

Urban Oasis on Waterfront with Glass Walls for Dream Home // Home Tech + Creature Comforts

One thing my Dream Space would have, that is missing from my life right this minute – is water. I am a water baby at heart and everything good in this world of mine, at least in my imagination, happens near the water. And of course where there is a beach, there is mad sand, and where there is sand… there is a crazed lunatic mom with a vacuum in hand. Might as well make this less of a thing, am I right? Who wants to be the crazy person running around wildly and shouting at her kids? Not I… that is for sure.

But first, before I cry myself to sleep over all of these things that I do not have, let me go soak in my large bathtub and watch a little Bravo reality tv on my amazing vanity mirror tv – it is built right into the mirror for goodness’ sake (or perhaps it is the mirror?), while I tune out the sound of crashing and breaking going on in the other room (sob).
