Making This House Feel Like Home

I’ve been a bad blogger. How can I write just a post for the whole week? Isn’t it a disgrace? Especially I felt bad not stopping by my favourite and loyal bloggers to say hello. Mia colpa, mia grandissima colpa!I I was finding it difficult to balance my blog writing with trying to make this house feel like home away from home.

Yes, I’ve been very busy because last Tuesday we received our stuff from the UK. As soon as the delivery guys brought into the house all our boxes, I forgot about writing and busied myself unpacking 40 pieces of boxes full of books/CDs/DVDs, shoes, clothes, paintings, beddings, decorative items and kitchen items.

I lost myself in reorganised the house in a way that it feels more comfortable and homey. AMI and I re-arranged the position of our sofa and TV. Now what was just a big empty room, which made me feel far away from home, looks welcoming divided into small sections of precious areas each one dedicated to a purpose. We are happy of the outcome and every time I come out from the bedroom to the living area I feel a sense of peace and joy.

We still don’t have a proper camera but I really want to show you the new look, I am not picky so I used an old Nokia phone camera to document the changes happening in this household. You can see pictures of how the place looked like before the new arrangement here. 08052011815

“small library area” – I have my own studio, I will show you that in another post.

On the other hand the big dark blue and red throw was a souvenir from my sister-in-law M, when she went to Peru.

I was settling in alright, but I saw a drastic mood improvement from the moment I received our boxes of books, clothes, shoes and the little items tat made my flat in London felt like home.

Truly, little things are really what make a person feel at home.

Until the next post, a BIG HAPPY MOTHER’S DAY TO ALL MOTHERS! Lots of love!

Please stay tuned I will bring information on my pregnancy very soon :).


  1. Nothing like putting a few personal touches to make a new place really feel like home. Hope that you had a wonderful Mother's Day too.

  2. No one can blame you for your silence while lost in such things. My favorite thing in the world is unpacked our "home" and nesting it... Love it!

  3. i think it is very important to get things in order to feel more at home ... so a few days without the blog is ok, we forgive you! :)

    the house is looking great! you are doing an amazing job! can't wait to see more pics! :)

  4. I'll be doing the same thing in less than 2 months. Your doing a great job so far :)

  5. Life is so busy! You'll come back when you can. Also, I can't wait to hear about your little bean!!

  6. So great you got your belongings...so cozy now!

  7. Sometimes it takes a while to get it all together. I wanted my house the way I wanted immediately, but that's not realistic. So far so good!

  8. I see it all now. You were NESTING! It looks very cozy.
