Hello. A yummy look at interiors today.
I just love the personality and warmth that shines through this tiny house - a one up, one down house, in Brighton. There may be a little too much stuff for me but I do like the vibe of the place. How cool is the micro-caravan pictured in that last photo? To read and see more at Wealden Times.
In previous posts I've talked about making necessary changes to our house to make it work for us. Within a tight budget we've still got some more jobs to do and things to purchase but to be honest buying a new door knocker or house number is not that exciting. By concentrating on the basics I think we've lost that initial enthusiasm for our new pad.
What I can't wait to do is to add some character to our house. You know, put up some photos and pictures and unpack the last of our personal belongings. Our style is fairly minimal but we want to add a few personal touches to make our house feel cosy and welcoming. We have pared down our possessions and furniture and have kept only a few chosen decorative items; selected items that reflect our history, interests and personalities. Alongside some modern items we have several vintage/retro items such as a printer's letterpress tray so hopefully our house won't have that everything-matching-brand-new-bland look.
Minimal meets eclectic may seem a contradiction but I think small spaces can still have style.
I don't believe minimalists have to live in bare, white spaces. Do you?
