Believe it or not, I am the worst Christmas decorator ever! Yes, I pretend to be an interior stylist and don’t get me wrong: I love the cozy vibe, I’m a s*cker for all Xmas songs so Mariah Carey is always welcomed with open arms and I know the lyrics to ‘Last Christmas’. I love spending these days with the family and appreciate some good food that goes with the festive season.
But when it comes to Christmas styling I feel very far off and feel a bit left out seeing others doing the decorating as they do it soooo much better. My Instagram feed is filled with the most gorgeous trees, wreaths, dinner table settings and happy snuggly families.
Originals. The real deal. A statement piece. That is what sums up design for us.
Investing in design is something most people don’t do overnight. It is is a process.
You might fall in love with a piece of design furniture when you are young and save up for it to finally call it your own many years after your first encounter. Or maybe you inherit a statement piece from a family member because you were always eying it. Whatever the story is, it is about surrounding yourself with furniture that you will love for the rest of your life.
We like clean and organised so doing a spring cleanup is welcomed all year round with open arms. Out with the old, in with the new!
That does not perse have to mean that you literally through out and replace with new furniture, we use it more along the lines of changing around items you already have, giving a wall a new color and make space for a new accessory to make your home look fresh and ready for a new season.
In my Instagram you might have seen that the hashtags #Movethatbus #RentalHeaven and #Getridofuglytiles is still going strong. We have moved into our new rental house that luckily feels more like our own home then any of our previous houses. This time around we had the chance to decide on most of the finishes. Finishes that, to me make a big difference in how I feel about my home. Where rental houses often make it necessary to turn a blind eye towards ugly tiles, a hideous kitchen or an unidentifiable color on the wall, this house is the best one yet! A wooden floor (yeah!), a marble counter top (hurray!, grey simple kitchen cabinets and walls on which we can choose our on color (yessss!) make me so happy! For the first time, this is a place that I want to show off and trust me, I will!
