I've always been proud of my home. It's weird to say I guess... I am not a spectacular decorator. I do not have the cookie cutter house by any means. 95% of my decor comes from thrift stores and antique stores. I spend so much time in here, that I don't notice how the over all look is. But, the moments when I decide to clean it, and photograph it, I get to see the over all feel and look of my house, and it makes me very proud. I feel my home is unique. It's very dark, because of the thick purple curtains to keep the temperature stable, and the darkness adds to the charm. The best thing about a house, is when it feels like a home. The best way to make it feel like a home, is to be proud of the things you put in it.
Surround yourself in the things that are you.
Like I mentioned, just about everything in this house is thrifted. So, there is a story behind the items, an energy, and a special feel of them. We love knick knacks, and curious items and I've always had a love for creepy things. I think this is the first time in my life that I am proud of the home I live in.
Life is too short to not surround yourself with beautiful things.
