    Your differences are not grammatical - both 'dream of' and 'dream about' are used interchangeably. They mean the same thing.
    You are correct, however, that 'dream of' would be used more to describe some aspiration, whereas 'dream about' tends to be used to describe a dream while sleeping. However, you could switch them in either use and still be correct.

    Both are meaning the same
