I’ve always been fascinated by interior design from different countries. In an ideal world, I’d want a house or two on each continent, decorated in the traditional style. Is that cultural appropriation? Well, I certainly would feel more at home in any of these environments, rather than that same bland magnolia or silver decor that I so often see in houses for sale on Rightmove.
When life and all those around you give you the blues, you can respond with a similar but much more cheerful shade of aqua. Turquoise is a mood lifter for me, hopefully for you too!
Today’s escapism is more down to earth – pieces of furniture that I would like to own some day and that could really take my home decorating style up a level. As you can see, I have rather eclectic tastes, so they might not all go well together!
Hmm, I wonder why open windows and escape are top of my mind at this moment in time… Here are some houses that really do not need escaping from, to keep you relaxed and dreamy.
OK, gems might be stretching the truth a bit, but certainly some quite unique architecture or setting or both…
You know by now how obsessed I am with beautiful hallways and staircases that entice you upstairs with the promise of heavenly delights to come…
Today I offer you a hodge-podge of cute decorating ideas, which make me dream and wish myself somewhere far, far away…
And why wouldn’t you, with porches like these?
Although some (OK, most) of these home offices don’t have nearly enough books stored in them, I could easily remedy that.
I’ve barely been using my home office lately. Of course, that has nothing to do with being away or being busy at work and with the children. I’m sure it has everything to do with the decor! So this week I don’t want to get too envious and will show you studies which are Instagrammable but probably not all that comfortable or practical.
