Reader’s homes

Posted on Tue, 21 Apr 2009 by KiM

We have received several emails recently from reader’s who wanted to share their homes so I thought I’d feature a bunch of them today.

The first is from Melody, of the blog me melodia. The following photos are of her friend’s bedroom in Berlin. She posted them on her blog for a new series she’s working on of her friends’ interior spaces. It’s such a comfy, relaxing space, and I ADORE the branch used to hang clothes!

We heard from Julie of Belle Vivir who recently made over her bathroom. She sent us some before and after photos. What a huge difference! I love the colour scheme and the totally cute toilet paper holder. Bathroom redos always make me jealous, as mine are embarrassingly horrid. I’m taking notes. (Click here for more photos).

Jen Venegas sent us a really sweet email the other day. A 25 year old woman who loves the notion of people turning their home into something that’s a direct reflection of themselves, Jen just moved into a home and has been having fun making it her own. Her income is somewhat limiting (I hear ya), but she makes do with garage sale finds, and sort of prides herself on that (I hear ya again!). It excites me to no end that junk finds are making their way into so many people’s homes, as it adds so much character to a space when it’s not all item after item found in any major home decor store. (Jen, I will send you a great big virtual kiss if you hang your art much lower – I’m so anal about that).

Claudiu of Cluj, Romania wrote us wanting to share his work-in-progress home. He’s an artist and his creativity is evident throughout his home, inside and out. The kitchen looks so cozy, and I love that he took his artwork to the exterior of his house as well.

Thanks to everyone featured here for wanting to share their homes with us and our readers!

That palm painted room is glorious. I will not try that at home though – I suspect it requires a great deal of ability!

I love the clothes hanging on the branch! So creative.

I approve of the bathroom renovation. With so much sleek smug modernism in bathrooms these days, it’s refreshing to see someone going with gingham and lace. More power to her!

I love Melody’s friend’s apartment1!! I especially love how she displayed the shoes. As someone challenged without closets, it is great to see someone so inventive about displaying their stuff. Thanks for sharing!!!

That branch! This one is definitely going in my files.
