My home style has changed dramatically over the years. I’ve always had a passion for home interiors, but never had the confidence to execute a vision fully. I’d tend to ‘play it safe’ and end up with a carbon copy of the Next Directory or Ikea Catalogue.
As the years have passed, naturally home trends and my tastes have changed. Obviously our way of living has adapted to include 2 little people. So now practicality, storage and functionality come into play more than ever. But I like to think that my confidence in delivering my interior vision has grown. Maybe it’s through all the ‘pinning’, blog reading, magazine flicking and even spending hours planning with interior designers at local shops that has given my confidence a little step up.
Sure as fate though, every now and then I’ll have a bit of a wobble and hit Pinterest, Instagram and bulk buy homes magazines, I guess in some sort of ‘buyers remorse’ mission to reassure myself that what I’ve put together is ‘right’. But I’ve also learned that what is ‘right’ to one person, might not be ‘right’ to someone else. I’m not talking about the scientific make up of the room here…I know that designers train for years in putting pieces together and building textures, layers, heights together and I’m not a designer. What I am meaning though is learning to trust my own eye and recognising that what I like can’t always be defined either. You see, when it comes to my home style, I’ve definitely fallen hard for a few of the recent trends and procrastinated to the point of ‘unlabelling’.
So, I’m not sure what trends have inspired me in our recent home renovation. Call it hygge, Scandi, industrial chic, minimal, rustic….for me I just call it home, in all its multi faceted glory.
