This dream occurred near the start of 2011. It took place in the house that I wish to someday design, build, and live in.
I walked in the front door of my house. Upon entering the house, I am greeted by three sets of staircases, one on each side of me going up and a larger staircase in the middle leading down.
I stumbled down the steps into the main living area. However, everything was different than I had imagined it in my sober life. All of the furniture was old--antique-like. It was also randomly placed and there was no feeling of organization or design. This confused me greatly. I wouldn't have decorated like this!
..then I realized I was dreaming.
I looked around the room and observed the ridiculous alignment of chairs, stacked tables, tipped desks, and upside down lamps. I chuckled. I looked at the opposing wall and could see a beautiful landscape. It was as if the wall was a portal and I could see through to the other side.
The dream quickly started phasing and I could feel myself falling out of lucidity. In fear of losing it and waking, I panicked and dropped to the floor. When I was laying on the floor, I closed my eyes and began meditating (focusing on my breath). Surprisingly, this worked and the lucidity was stabilized. I was able to keep myself in the dream and found this extremely odd in itself.
I opened my eyes and fixed my gaze on the portal. Present, on the other side, was a shockingly gorgeous view of a mountain scape with the sun snuggling down just beneath their peaks. The colours of the landscape were reminiscent of a trippy painting (purple mountains, pink/blue/green sky, yellow grass, etc.). Birds were circling in the sky.
I walked towards the wall and hopped through.
Upon jumping through the wall, I awoke.
