Corners Of My Home #1

Being a bit of a nosy person I love to see in people’s homes. If Estate Agents didn’t have such shoddy reputations I’m sure if would have been a great career for me. There’s nothing I think is more revealing of a person than the inside of their home, am I right?

When it comes to me I think I’m pretty house proud but happy to be in a home that’s ‘lived-in’, yes I like things to be as clean and tidy and smelling of bleach (die, germs, die) but you’ll still find muddy boots in the hallway, a toy car in the bathroom and the perpetual pile of washing on the bed.

I’m a big fan of interiors blogs but often they’re a little too perfect, a little too dream-life. Where are the French doors covered in toddler toothpaste? Not on Apartment Therapy, that’s for sure. So the recent ‘Corners of my Home’ feature that some of my favourite bloggers have been posting recently is awesome; it’s like snooping through someone’s front window without getting caught (though I ask: why live at street level if you don’t want people looking through your window? Just saying…).

Here are some current favourite nooks and corners of my home, in the dining room, kitchen and hallway.

‘A Visual Compendium of Haircuts in Popular Music’ from PopChart Labs – needs hanging – and a collection of animal ornaments from our travels (plus the Eiffel Tower)

    Glad you like it, although if you could see my room/house at this moment now, you would probably call Aggie & Kim, and maybe the police?

      Ditto with Elfie’s bedroom… she found that her storage boxes have tights in and managed to empty them all over her room. I would wait for her to tidy up herself but that might be about seven years :(
