Currently, we are flying up over the sea from Turkey to Malta. Before I left, I documented my favourite things about our place back home. Like many places we’ll see in Malta, the condo came furnished, and since I wouldn’t necessarily say the furnishings were to my taste, I had to work around them to create my own space. Although I’m looking forward to travelling for some time, and living out of one suitcase, I still can’t wait to finally settle into our true home, unpack, and decorate it fully to my liking. Here were some of my favourite things in our place:
This aqua accent wall is actually removable wallpaper. All the artwork in the apartment I painted. The wooden numbers 0 & 4 are actually our buzzer code, and are antique address signs from a barn by our cottage.
Much to my mother’s dismay (whom’s house has been turned into my storage unit), I began collecting unique shaped mirrors. They are a serious obsession of mine. I can’t wait to be able to create a full gallery wall with them all.
For me, my front entrance was always a welcome sight based on the items I kept there. Another antique mirror in a stunning gold-rimmed silhouette, propped up by a contrasting modern bookend. Storage boxes in my favourite hue, with another pop of colour from my magenta reading glasses.
A photograph taken and gifted to me by a friend, as well as my signature perfume to dab on while running out the door, and my favourite candle.
Our cluttered little desk, complete with my favourite Eames chair, some more artwork I’ve done, and the prettiest floral storage box I ever did see.
This was once home sweet home, but I know wherever I may end up I’ll be able to make that particular place feel like my own little sanctuary.
