It seems that for some of us we start in one room and work your way around the house until we get back to the first room we played with. Then we start all over again.
I am guessing this continues until your walls hold enough cd’s, dvd’s and trashy ornaments to earn a steady ebay income for the next 12 years.
Others do the house up till it is just how they want it… Then move.
Perhaps I belong to the last category. Kind of the very long term property developers approach. The only difference being that this home is being done up with personal tastes in mind and not that of any potential purchaser.
For some, the improvement of the house and the space inside the four walls directly correlates to maintenance of the soul.
This I think is a very dangerous mindset to fall into. I think the more we clutter our house, the more it clutters our soul. I am not saying we all have to live in a white space minimalist box. I just think we ‘the consumer’ tend to get carried away with all the pretty things we are told will make our lives fuller, happier… better.
Right, that said I am off out to buy a compost bin, a door bell and other ever so practical objects to clutter house and garden.
