Make yourself at home

kitchen

I'm possibly the world's nosiest girl, so I just love seeing inside other peoples houses.
If true be told, I love nothing better than sitting on the top floor of the bus (a winter's evening is best) peering into the houses as the bus ambles through the city streets. I even have firm favourites.

Needless to say, I love seeing other bloggers homes. Especially Sandra, Carrie and Francesca's

I thought it was about time I showed you around my home.
So I'll start by showing you my favourite room, the kitchen.
I spend most of my time in here, baking, cooking or sewing at our huge kitchen table (I didn't take pictures of it because its just a big table...kinda boring)

You're probably as sick of seeing this print as I am. It's everywhere, in every colour but in my defence, I've had it for a good few years and I bought in Barter Books, Alnwick where the poster was rediscovered for the first time since 1939. Totally off the point but if you love books and you're in Northumberland Barter Books is definitely worth a visit, I promise you won't be disappointed.

When I'm buying things for the kitchen, I always have Daisy de Villeneuve's flat in my mind. I love how simple the decoration is and how vibrant all the accessories are.
I know its such a cliche but I love mixing old and new pieces.

I'd say 75% of things in my kitchen are tatty, old and hauled from thirft shops. I really hate buying new crockery because old stuff is so much is so much prettier and a mere fraction of the price.
And the other 25% is shiny, pastel and new but sometimes I just can't help myself.
Especially when it has cupcakes on it.

All that is missing is a pastel pink Smeg fridge so I'll just have to make do with a simple white one and some favourite pictures.



Do you have pictures of your home on your blog or just some inspiring images?
I'd love to see, send me a link!
