Have you ever watched Mythbusters? All geek-iness aside, I really like that concept of separating myth from fact or fiction.
Consumerism can often sway our perceptions on what it takes to make a beautiful home… It can be overwhelming because we feel our homes are never quite perfect or good enough.
How fabulous would it be, if there was a TV program for myth busting misconceptions on what it takes to make a beautiful home? One that was truthfully based on real life family budget’s and preferably with no 7 day makeover-miracles insight. Would you watch it??
When compared – I know that simple, great- styling on a budget will always give luxury a sincere run for its money. I do really believe a great home is all about how it is put together! We could call it Myth Dusting. “Yoo – hoo Foxtel (I’m waving :-)), obviously I would need to check my schedule…. however, it is possible that I could make myself available to consult on this particular project”…. hee he just saying. All jokes aside, maybe you too would like to join me?? What home-myth would you like to bust?
- Firstly the people who live within a home – will always add more character, beauty and depth than anything you can purchase
- A beautiful home is always well lived in and loved by its occupants
- A home should reflect the personalities of the people who live in it
- A great home is always about the love that’s been shown to it and never about the expense. *FYI the small things we do/ achieve definitely count!
- Time and energy is needed to style a home well; a stylist can also work wonders with nothing, save you money and help you fall in love with your home!
- Never underestimate a good colour palate- it will create mood and tie the many different elements of a room / house together. And lastly
- Space, organisation and proportion is a hugely important consideration for every room. Big chunky things look great in spacious rooms and smaller sized /fewer pieces can make a room appear more spacious than it actually is.
Now, have you thought of a home- myth we could bust? Do tell me – lets dust it!
