A Daughter's Dream Room & the Dyson DC59 Motorhead Vacuum

My little girl is growing up.  She wants a more mature bedroom, something different than the one she’s had for years.  The room you see here is it’s condition just prior to a magazine shoot at our house a few months back.  So please understand, it’s NEVER this clean.  Which is a problem, but I’ll get to that later in the post when I share with you my dream . . .

daughter’s room

Her bedroom is really a pass-through room into my older daughter’s room, which doesn’t give either of them much privacy.  Mr. Man decided he is tired of going from his studio (in the finished basement) to the second floor of our home to get to his office. Because he offices from home, the Mr. has clients traipsing through our house all the time.  Although he has LOVED this room as his office, he offered to let our younger daughter move into it so that she could have a big girl room and he could have a complete studio/office on one level.  I do believe I saw him shed a tear, though . . .

My daughter loves all the bookcases and the window seat in this room (Mr. Man built those in ten years ago), so she and I began to dream what her new room will be.  We have decided to paint all the bookcases and trim throughout the room turquoise blue to change up the color scheme dramatically. The new color scheme will be turquoise, orange, and yellow. The more I think about it, the more excited I get about the changes!  This room will be different from any room in our home.  This is the Inspiration Board I put together for this space:

 

OB-Dyson Dream Room

 

So this is going to be great for her, but what about MY DREAM?  My dream is for a room that stays clean, picked up – everything in its place.  Not all the time – not when she’s playing, of course.  But for a small smidgen of every single day, my dream is for her room to look like a magazine spread.  Is that too much to ask?

Well, you may think my expectations are a bit unrealistic, but I recently learned about this amazing CORDLESS vacuum – the Dyson DC59 Motorhead.  It’s getting rave reviews, and I will tell you why. I’m pretty sure this could make my dream come true.  It outcleans the top five selling full-size vacuums, and it’s cordless. We have a central vacuum system in our home, which has its merits, but my kids hate the big clunky hose and claim it’s too hard to maneuver. See how easily the  Dyson DC59 Motorhead fits in her room:

 

OB-Dyson Dream Room

 

I’m thinking the Dyson DC59 Motorhead might be just the ticket to get the girls to vacuum their own rooms.  It’s lightweight – less than 5 pounds!  And it easily cleans under furniture, above head (to get into all the shelves in her bookcase).

We could use it to vacuum and dust – with one simple machine.  It’s great on stairs and will even zap cobwebs in corners without having to touch them, so no more excuses for my dear daughter NOT to clean her room!

The Dyson DC59 Motorhead works equally well on hardwood and carpet, and it’s a breeze for cleaning out your car – and if you’ve ever ridden in my car, you would know badly I need that.

My dream is a stairway without dog hair! How nice to have a lightweight, cordless vacuum to make that happen.

Not sure if I’m allowed to enter since I’m in the UK?

My dream room? A large, airy room with dark hardwood floors and pale blue walls. Floaty white curtains, a tufted headboard and luxurious white bedding. Excellent storage, mood lighting and a window seat (I’ve always wanted a window seat!)

And as for the most helpful Dyson feature, the fact that it’s lightweight would be super amazing (I’m disabled) though the fact that it’s cordless is awesome as well!

Will Dyson DC59 give me back 2 hours a day? YES! We have built our home to replicate the 1920’s feel with 2600 sf of hardwood and marble on the main level. We live on the lake with sand being tracked thru on a daily basis. The Dyson DC59 would easily power thru the hardwood and area rugs right thru to the marble flooring in the bath. Dream room? Not yet but with a power vac like that my dream might come true! Lets ditch those heavy canister vacs and enjoy our cleaning routine! Forgot to mention cordless? Thats a… Read more »

I love the almost all white room! And the pink dyson motorhead would be a dream to have! I have the dyson upright and love it but a cordless would be so handy.

My dream room would be an oversized laundry and mud room. With blue washer and dryer and a place for everything. Maybe even throw in a dog shower. I would use the Dyson to keep our dog hair under control. 🙂 The cordless feature would be most helpful.

I only have a old and cheap vacuum that just doesn’t clean that well so any high functioning vacuum would be a huge improvement. Dyson has that reputation in spades.

We have a cottage behind our home and I’m constantly dragging the vacuum back and forth. How nice it would be to have the lightweight, cordless Dyson. I’m sure it would quickly become my new best friend forever.

My dream room is making our main entrance hardwood – our carpet has given its best for 5 years of my son’s life! Entryway, office area, eat-in area and the kitchen. One large activity space for our home every day – it’s our high traffic, high usage room. We already are big believers in Dyson – we invested in a DC33 and fell in love with that powerful motor. I would love to have it’s “sister” to take care of new hardwoods!

I love that it is cordless and works on lots of different surfaces. I know it’d use it all the time in my dream room–a library with floor to ceiling bookshelves and built-in window seats with plantation shutters. I’m lucky to say my dream is becoming a reality with DH building it this fall.

I love the new design for your daughter’s room! I too struggle with both my girls keeping their rooms clean. For the past year I have been redecorating both of their rooms, but our constant challenge is keeping them CLEAN! I currently have a Dyson Animal that I saved up for for years. It’s an amazing vacuum and all the Dyson products are fabulous. But many times I have wished I could more easily carry it to the attic, down to the basement, out to the car…..so my FAVORITE thing about theDC59 Motorhead is it’s cordless portability. Hands down!

I thought for sure you’d mention that the girl’s would love that the dyson is PINK! I hate vacuuming stairs so the light weight feature might get me to actually clean the stairs instead of having to move. My dream room is a beachy kitchen/living room overlooking the sand and surf.

I think the docking station as well as the ability to pick up all the things I’m allergic too… And loose pins without bag rupturing would make it perfect for my teenie tiny craft room. Plus the reacher arm attachment means I could keep all my fabric stash dust free.. Even the top shelf.

I hate vacuuming the stairs, so the fact that this is only 5 pounds and cordless would make my day! My dream room would be a romantic but still functional bedroom to share with my husband as we celebrate 25 years of marriage this year.

I love to vaccum to see the “clean” streaks on the carpet! They only last a few minutes after the kids… Dog… And husband walk thru! But a happy family is also a dream!

My dream space is an uncluttered and redecorated bedroom. Haven’t done much to it for about 28 years as raising children and taking care of other spaces has been the priority. The cordless and dual use on carpet and hard floors are awesome features of the Dyson DC59 Motorhead. Also the fact that it sounds like it cleans so well! Most cordless vacs I’ve used in the past have not done a thorough job.

Like you, I love any space that is clean! My front formal living room is my fav space right now… we just painted and cleaned it top to bottom so it’s organized and very clean! I sit in there to read the paper and my husband and I sit there just about every work day to catch up with each other. It’s my dream space – and I hope it continues to stay clean!
We have a dyson – the cannister model, which is awesome – but really need a hand held too.

This little vacuum looks like a dream! I would love using it on my stairway and for hard-to-reach, awkward places that are difficult with a heavy machine. Be gone! years of lugging that huge vacuum up and down and up and down! My dream space is to update the kitchen with white cabinets and lovely hardwood floors incorporating some of my much-loved Victorian pieces into the update.

Living in an rv right now, so my dream would just be a house! Currently though the most helpful thing about the vacuum would be its compact size.

I fell in love with the ” captures microscopic dust” feature!!

My dream room would be a large pantry with undercounter laundry to store all of the food that we can from our garden while having an out of the way place to fold laundry – and store my new Dyson vacuum : )

Living on the cape, we constantly track in sand from outside. The stairs to the bedrooms are just inside the back door, so invariably, the stairs have sand and dirt on them. I love the cordless, lightweight design of the Dyson DC59 Mortorhead. It would make cleaning the stairs a breeze.

My dream room has long been a multi season sunroom with a slate floor and plenty of windows to let in light for reading, many plants, cushy furniture with sunbrella slipcovers, 2 hanging chairs for my daughters, billowing window sheers, & an indoor/outdoor area rug.

I would love the Mini motorized tool on the Dyson to make it easier to vacuum the upholstery more regularly than I do now!

My dream room is an open concept basement. Part laundry, part entertainment kitchen, part family room, with painted beams and a insulated hardwood floor. The Dyson DC59 would keep our new space clean of cobwebs, at 5 lbs and cordless, cleaning overhead would be a breeze.

With a new puppy in the house and four precious grandchildren, we would use this nearly everyday. I would love to have a cordless vacuum for the stairs and car.

Cordless and lightweight? I would finally be able to clean my nasty stairs! Even though I have lots of ideas of how I would like my house to look, my dream room would be one that is clean and looks clean. (2 different things)

Our dream room is a wine tasting room in the basement near my husband’s winery. It would be a wonderful place to sit with friends and taste his great wines. With the Dyson Motorhead Vac, I wouldn’t have to haul my heavy vacuum cleaner up and down the stairs. Ah! : )

I already have my dream room. It includes a hallway into a kitchen/family room/ dining room where most of my life takes place. A light vacuum that could help me with the carpet, tile and wood flooring in this large space would be absolutely wonderful!

My dream space is an office/library with lots of built ins for books and storage. Pets are part of the family, so the Dyson would be great for keeping the office (and the rest of the house) free from dust, dirt and pet hair.

The fact it’s cordless (and lightweight) would mean that even my 7 year old could easily use it, right? Well, that would definitely be a game changer! 🙂

My dream space is a spot for reading, so it would need a cozy place to curl up and room for my coffee — but I love to look up from my book now and then and gaze outside when pondering, so I’d really love welcoming windows for a peaceful outdoor view. My favorite Dyson feature is its versatility. Thursday is my cleaning day, so I would love to use one piece of equipment for the many things I tidy up: carpet, wood floors, dusting, stairs…plus all the corners and tight spots throughout the house where dog hair and cobwebs… Read more »

My dream space is any room I can claim as my own in a house full of boys…one that I can make as girly as I want. The Dyson would be a great addition to our household and the fact that it is cordless and lightweight (kid-friendly) is perfect for us!

This DC59 vacuum sounds amazing. My favorite feature would be the ease of cleaning both carpet and hardwood…tile too! Thanks, Kristie!

This vacuum would be great at our shore cottage. Built in the 80s it has a sunken living room with two sets of stairs and a spiral staircase. Not great for long cords and long hoses. In my dream room I will replace that 40 year old industrial carpet with textured or reclaimed wood floors. One wood panelled wall will have store from floor to ceiling and the remaining wood walks whitewashed. Don’t even get me started on the kitchen, that is “a do over”. Thanks

My dream space would be a large homeschooling room – complete with built-in bookcases, work spaces (for five!), space for all supplies to be at our fingertips and organized.
The cordless vac would be MARVELOUS! No cord getting stuck as I go around the fridge….or under a cart with wheels. And going from carpet to hard floor without changing any heads – that would be great!

My dream is to turn (with her permission and excitement) my daughters playhouse into a new urban chicken coop! We would LOVE to hsve this stain for vacuuming dog hair of of our basement stairs. I would love to be rid of the carpet, but our sweet dog Lola needs it to keep a grip on the stairs as she travels them. And, I didn’t even think about the car! That would be revolutionary! Thanks for the opportunity to live dog hair free-ish! 🙂

I have the Dyson Animal and am already sold on Dyson vacuums! But I live in a 2 story house plus a basement – it would be great to have a lightweight vacuum to carry upstairs – and to rid those stairs of dog hair (my dogs aren’t allowed on the 2nd floor – how is there dog hair on the stairs to the 2nd floor?).

Thank you for offering this!

My dream room is clean, clutter free with warm earth tones a big cozy sectional and a fireplace. It needs to have plenty of storage for board games and books. A place were my family and friends can spend time together laughing and loving!
I love that the Dyson is cord free and only 5lbs! I can store it in my closet and use it in every room in the house without ever worrying about plugging and unplugging cords!

My dream space is a family room that is inviting, warm, comfortable and stylish at the same time. And did I mention CLEAN? My vacuum is so darn heavy, I don’t having to get it out, and forget taking it upstairs! The Dyson would be very helpful since it is so light 🙂
