The curated home.
We went out to dinner with friends last week and somehow managed to get onto the topic of house work. I could not believe it, all my friends have cleaners, now I'm not saying there is anything wrong with having a cleaner, but I was like 'what do you do with all your stuff?'
It was then that I was reminded that their homes don't contain lots of stuff, just essential living things.
Thank the Lord we're all different.
They then said I should get one, 'but what about my stuff?' I cried, 'I don't want anyone touching my stuff' lol.
It dawned on me the reason I like housework, it's because it doesn't feel like housework.
My home is carefully curated every few days to match my mood. I'm a constant faffer, and revel in collecting beautiful nik naks (lucky, as that's also what I do for a living), and styling them into interesting vignettes around the home.
I imagine it's like playing with a huge dolls house, but it's my home.
I've always loved intricate detail, I prefer always to see snippets of a room then the whole thing, so my collection of things are always quite small.
I love vintage china and flowers, and use these a lot to dress my home, don't get me wrong, it's not a museum, hell no, it's a family home with a dog and the odd chicken sometimes wandering through lol.
Actually, I think it would probably be a cleaners nightmare ha.
