I’m a nosey parker. There, I said it.
Blogs have only fueled my love for peering into other peoples lives. It might be a notch up from reality tv but I unashamedly love it. Show me photos of your bedroom, bathroom, kitchen, lounge, the more the merrier. Repeat posts revealing your rooms in different seasons, with new additions or a new arrangement. Love, love, love. More, more, more.
I’ve said it before but it doesn’t hurt to repeat it – my home is a work in progress. Hampered by moving around way too much, we seem to be just settling into our current place but I like the way it’s shaping up although I many more plans. I now know exactly what I’m doing with my all too bare walls. We held off filling them up until we decided how we wanted to display our pictures, posters and photos but I think we’ve settled on an idea now, so that’ll be our next decor job.
We love our vintage but try to keep it as streamlined as possible. Our sixties coffee table is a mutual favourite but it’s in desperate need of a repaint. I’ve given it a good sanding down, so now that it’s primed and ready all we have to do is settle on a colour – we’re stuck between keeping it white or going all out with a vibrant orange or yellow.
Another thing on the shopping list is a new sofa. The one you can just about glimpse here (with the postage stamp cushion) was left by the previous tenant and whilst it’s not awful (it’s almost awful but not quite), it’s definitely not something I would ever choose myself. The purple throw covers most of it, which means I don’t have to endure the bland beige in its full glory. Hopefully we’ll be able to replace it at some point in the near future and I’m always on the hunt for a vintage Scandinavian style couch. Effortlessly sleek, enduringly classic and fantastically comfortable, it would be the perfect addition to our lounge.
