As far back as I can remember I’ve always been fascinated by pretty buildings and pretty interiors. I love anything having to do with either, and wherever I’d go, even just on short trips around town, I would stare and marvel at beautiful buildings I’d pass. I loved at night when you could see in the windows to get a glimpse of the inside (don’t lie, you love it, too). And while other kids were playing video games, I was dreaming up floor plans on one of several home design computer programs (seriously).
I have a long and ever-growing list of house+home blogs bookmarked that I check on a weekly basis. Some are diy, some are more luxurious by professional designers, but I love reading about and seeing the transformations and amazing spaces. I love how a little pattern here or there or a new lampshade can totally transform a space. John and Sherry’s younghouselove was the first one I found and really got into, and from there I would blog hop from links on each site to lots of other interesting sites and it’s given me a great variety to view each week. If we’re being totally honest here, younghouselove is actually one of the daily stops in my internet routine. I love the tone of their writing, like they’re just having a conversation with each reader like they would if it was in person. I really love the projects they do and how approachable they make everything seem (although I don’t think I’m ready to build a deck quite yet). And of course I love hearing about Clara and Burger, too.
I’m not aiming to go pro and I can’t guarantee that this will be an interesting or entertaining read to anyone but myself (although I hope it is!) but I wanted to create my own little space where I can share things that I find interesting or just pretty, awesome things I find for my own home, or even when I decide to take on a diy project. And my fluffy cat Milo may or may not make an appearance from time to time as well.
