the room

Monday, 25 April 2011


A mismatch of numerous buddhas, aborigine memorabilia, vintage finds, music and my mother's homemade crafts amidst a variety of colour, including that yellow wall, make up my family living room. Favourite pieces include the Indian rug, colourful wooden long man thing, the big wooden chest and our salute to the stars wall. In case you couldn't tell, that last image is of our piano; completely covered in memories. That close-up is of my sister and I with a collection of our favourite teddies. Always a fan of dressing up, I - on the right - was the ultimate poser.

While some say my house is too cluttered, most are enamoured with its charm. I get a fair few comments regarding the room that I take my outfit pictures in so thought it might interest some of you, hence the tour. Some days I have the strongest urge to leave this house forever - note: lack of funds prohibit this - and other times I know I'll miss its eccentricity.

  3. My flat is on its way to slowly becoming like this! I particularly love the wall of photos, I've got a collection of old special cameras that I'm still working through the film until I can develop it and then my own wall of photos can begin! lol

    It's not cluttered, its just unique :)
