There is one important fact that I love about interior blogs, Pinterest and Instagram: The abundance of real, lived in interiors shared with the world. Those interiors with character and imperfections remind us that living beautifully does not mean living in a staged surrounding.

For me, the most beautiful home is one that reflects its owner or dweller. Be it eclectic collections of vintage ceramics, plants, embroidery, art books, portraits, music instruments or anything else – these homes tell stories and can be read like a good book.

I love homes of well-traveled folks. People bring back details from their journeys and decorate their homes – and I do not refer to tacky souvenir pieces bought in a cheap (or worse over-priced) tourist shop. I refer to those unexpected pieces found along the way: in a local boutique, on a flea market, gifts from hosts and friends abroad, pieces found in the nature. Bring those pieces back home and tell your visitors about them!

I love homes that exude an easy-going, imperfect atmosphere. I love places where there’s a random blanket left unmade, cushions squeezed into a corner, a forgotten bunch of wilted flowers, a few crooked frames – sometimes this oh so real imperfection seems to be hard to achieve for people referred to as perfectionist. I myself tend to be that way. But then I remind myself that life is not perfect either. So why bother with the home? Don’t you agree?
