I love my (rented) house. It’s true. It’s in the suburbs, but it’s bright and light – and I can look out across rooftops and trees. It’s my favourite place to be. Home is my absolute fave.
I have been thinking a bit about other kinds of houses and places to live, too.
I favour houses where you can go for nice walks nearby and see the trees from the living room… or perhaps see other natural and lovely things from the living room.
My current house is near lots of things I like, but far enough from things to feel like a retreat. It’s a nice change from living on busy Brunswick Street in Fitzroy for 8 years. And clattery Bridge Road in Richmond for 3 years before that. The green and the quiet of my now house are good things for me.
I also like it that my house is a bit non-traditional. It’s nice to have a quirky house with some character and I love an original kitchen and bathroom, with all my heart! My house has those things.
I also love a house that reflects comfort and cosiness. If it’s dotted with books and art and craft and excellent things to cook with and leafy greens, all the better.
Here are some other nice houses.
I don’t like to show too much of my own house, for now, because it’s nice to keep some special things for myself, ya know?! There are some bits and pieces on my Instagram, I guess, if you fancy a peek!
What is your house like? How does it make you feel and what kind of things are nearby?
