Little One's Chat: What are your style and values in interior design for your home?
There are no right or wrong answers as everyone has their own individual tastes. We should be proud of our uniqueness and what we are interested in; don't be scared to express yourself in the fear that you won't be accepted in society. A lot of people play it safe with the interior of their home because they are worried it won't look good or that their friends won't approve of their tastes. This also translates to other things like music tastes, race, sexual orientation and fashion. In school I remember feeling embarrassed for being different as I was one of very few kids in school of ethnic minority. I am mixed race; white/asian and now very lucky to feel proud of my heritage!! I remember trying to keep it a secret that I was born in Malaysia and that my mum is Chinese and I now think how upsetting is that? We should embrace our differences and it shouldn't matter what anyone else thinks of you or your interests if they are different from the majority of people.
Decorate your home for YOU and nobody else.
Interior Design is a chance for you to express your individuality, your interests and your passions. Who cares if you like something that is not 'on trend' at the moment... just get it!
PICK THREE WORDS out of the following that best describe your values and tastes in decor and please comment at the bottom of this post, on my FB page ( Natalie Holden Interiors - Little One's Blog ) or on Twitter ( @N_H_Interiors ) using Hashtag #LittleOnesChat. I want to encourage everyone to share their likes and dislikes with me without being scared of what everyone else thinks. This is also interesting for me to find out which takes priority out of form and function. Do practicalities take priority over style? Please let me know! I will share with you all in another post on what my values and tastes are, aswell as the results of this exercise! 🙂
Look forward to getting your comments!
