Unfortunately, I’m not in a position to be buying or renting my own home at the moment but I trust that when I become a millionaire sometime soon, I will be. I’m just kidding but we all know how difficult it can be to get on the property ladder right now, with house prices going up and up and up and the hope for young people ever moving out of their parents house getting slimmer and slimmer. But obviously, not impossible. Lots of young people do manage it and that’s great. Although I’m fairly happy with my position right now, I’ve always had a love for home decor and home interiors. You should see how long I spend designing houses on The Sims! So designing and decorating a place of my own is something I often dream about. So, if money was no issue, here are some of my dream home interiors!
I’ve been re-decorating my bedroom since more or less last September. I re-painted my walls; got rid of this awful, stained, grotty pink I had on my walls for what felt like forever (I sound like I live in a swamp Jesus Christ) and painted them a simple off-white (against my Mum’s judgement who insisted it “wouldn’t look right”. It did. Sorry Mum but you’re wrong on this one). I got rid of all my “tat”. I hate clutter as it is so I’m very happy throwing stuff away and I got a more simple style of bedding. As I’ve gotten older, I’ve been drawn more and more towards minimalism. In my life and in my home decor. Although I’m still not entirely happy with my bedroom and I’m still working on making it that perfect, simplistic place for me to have my safe haven, it’s certainly getting there and I have a much clearer mind of the type of style I want. And the type of style I’d want in the future when I hopefully have my own place.
I am my mother’s daughter in that I love candles. Big, small, scented, un-scented, Yankee, own-brand – you name it, I love going into a shop and sticking my face in a bunch of gorgeous candles. Like, when they’re un-lit, of course. We have more candles in our house than we know what to do with but when Candles With Love contacted me asking if I’d like to review some of their candles, I wasn’t going to say no, was I? I like to think I have enough experience in candle sniffing to be a reliable judge of what makes a decent candle or not.
