My home is my castle indeed. I'm not a follower of the latest interior trends, but I love to create spaces filled with things I love, which reflect who we are as a family. Colourful, homemade, collected, gifted and upcycled. our home in all it's quirkiness reflects US. (And there's nothing I like better than splashing paint around).
