I live in a country which is famous for design. You can find the most wonderful things for your home in Denmark. Stylish chairs, even more stylish TVs, candles in every shape and size, beautiful glass and china. For many years, I rejected my english heritage and built a home which was very much inspired by the clean cut danish design. I even moved into a modern apartment with white walls and wooden floors.
But I realised I wasn't creating a home for ME. I was creating a place that looked amazing in the pictures and could tick many boxes but it wasn't my home. I have always liked furniture from Bali/Indonesia and last summer I found a warehouse outside of Copenhagen where the couple who own it travel to Bali for a couple of months each year and come back with gorgeous unique pieces of furniture. Last summer I bought 5 pieces and this really changed my home and yesterday I got the missing piece. A rug for the floor.
I have realised how important it is to feel connected to the place where you live. To feel it represents you. That is a calm space. That you can stop, rest, recharge as well as entertain and have fun. I have a lot of buddhas and lanterns and I also love my altars (one in the living room and one in my bedroom). I have photos from holidays and also ones that my Dad has taken. My children call this our hippy dippy home.
This has been a key step in my journey. Making MY home feel like the right place for me. What would your ideal home look like?
