Adventures in homestyling part 3: the Things I like

What follows is a photographic account of the violation of my home and my aesthetics for the simple reason of making it more commercially appealing.

In this third installment I thought it might be time to bring up some things I actually liked.

The absolutely best thing is because we moved our computer area I could finally set up a sewing corner in the bookshelf. All the boxes, things, doodads and books, no way I can make it look tidy and that’s what I like about it.

Notice how the sewing machine isn’t plugged in? Yeah …

Living Room

First thing I made after setting up the sewing corner was this table runner.

The cats never let me have things like these on the walls, I’m looking at every catfree weekend as an opportunity.

Hallway

I like turtles and mini Höganäs jugs.

And tiny ships in tiny bottles. I mean, who doesn’t?

Then we got Lenin as a book stand. Who doesn’t need random communist memorabilia in their decorating scheme? (There’s a Chairman Mao vase in the next installement)

The table and my first doily.

Adventures in homestyling part 2: the Bedroom

What follows is a photographic account of the violation of my home and my aesthetics for the simple reason of making it more commercially appealing.

Secondly the bedroom.

Delving deeper into this twisted world of affirmations, white and beige, we start with covering up my bright red armchair. More plants, curtains and a glass horse head.

Bedroom

Serious business this homestyling thing.

Bedroom

Seriously.

Pillows and absolutely non-offensive bedroom “art”. A picture of rocks with the word hope.

Why one needs reminders of abstract concepts via rocks I will never really understand there will be more of those in the next installment. But I digress.

bedroom

Assorted things, some of which are actually things I owned from before, none of which are porcelain animals.

I leave you with this. It’s on my desk, next to the computer. Where I can see it. With my eyes. Why?

Adventures in homestyling part 1: the Kitchen

What follows is a photographic account of the violation of my home and my aesthetics for the simple reason of making it more commercially appealing.

First the Kitchen.

It starts with citrus fruits. As these things tend to do.

Kitchen

Works its way to becoming a teacup herb garden, more candles and even more fruit.
