I like old houses and I am an avid collector of antique furniture (often picked up from the side of the road). I also collect indoor houseplants so some rooms in my house are a bit of a jungle. Definitely not a minimalist!
What are your interiors like? Can the way you decorate reflect the state of your mind? My house is a touch chaotic and my brain is often in chaos to match!
It’s a sort of run-down aesthetic, you know?
The kind where your bathroom never looks clean no matter how much you clean it.
And where you don’t really care how your furniture looks, because you’re not sure it would really help that much if it even did look good.
Currently I live in a largely empty small flat and that’s how I intend to keep it, I can’t cope with anything more complicated than that. I still haven’t cleaned since moving in (but I’m starting today) 6 weeks ago. I only have one piece of furniture in the main room, a sofa bed. I’m planning on getting an orthodox style icon for the entrance, and a nice pic by a photographer friend in the kitchen area. That’s it.
I’m currently living with my in-laws, but their house is very 90’s farmhouse. The living room is the only updated room and it’s more mid 2000’s farmhouse with light brown walls and red and light brown plaid curtains things.
I have a lot of IKEA furniture, and my desk is from Staples stationary store. My apartment is a mix of modern with feminine touches like a floral wreath, a vase of flowers, and some 3D butterflies stuck to one of my walls.
My place is cheap but has a scheme. Grey and turquoise, espresso wood. All the furniture came in a box and had to be built. Everything is new and bought on a very low budget. But it came out kind of nice I think. Right now I’m working on making final touches like flower arrangements and more wreaths. I also need window treatments and need to get some last paintings on the walls.
