What do you love about your decoration home?



Marina is hosting "What do you love about your decoration home" today.
I've already posted about my families love of "busts" here... and here are some other photos from home of areas I like such as our staircase covered in pictures
My dad is a military collecter so there is a heavy prescence of that theme throughout the house!
The funny thing is when I was hanging a number of pictures in my bedroom my dad complained I was going to bring the walls down!!!
This is the mirror as you're entering/leaving the house and a good stop for a final make up check!
(And yes there are more pictures!! - the ones on the right of the photo are of my brothers army days)
This sideboard is due to be stored for my home shortly when my parents redecorate... don't worry I have already decided it'll be painted white of course!
And this chair which is "my chair" at home will be coming with me when I move
They were once my mum's parents chairs which they had recovered years ago but I think with a good clean they will serve me well!
Shelves in our kitchen...
You can see my gingerbread man items which haven't been stored away yet... some of the china belonger to grandparents and other pieces are from my mum's collection
And I love this wardrobein my parents room... how wonderful with a lick of white paint!
Finally I'm taking you into our toilet....
I love that my parents haven't shyed away from decorating this room....
The cute figures were from a local antique store and they're actually sitting on toilets!!!
I hope you enjoyed seeing some areas of my parents home... I'm off to look round yours now!

You already have some nice piece of furniture (painted white of course or at that time grey perhaps or left like this...) when you are leaving your parents house. I always loved these old cupboards too.

PAINT MINE PINK said...

Hiya Victoria!
Oooh im in love with that sideboard! yep id paint it too no doubt...Do your parents just cringe when you say you are going to paint the furniture white? My dad does but mum is all for it of course!
Love the wardrobe too, love the comfy chair, the shelves...oh and the toilet! YAY for you! I wonder how many people will show their toilet? And the ornaments are so cute and funny.

Take Care,
Love Shann

How lovely everything is....I am going to throw my 2 cents in though.
I love white....I hate to paint but I love pieces in the natural state too. The side board and amoire are so beautiful...are you sure you want to paint them LOL.
Your choice, but you can always mix in light pieces.
I would love to have those!
The figurines on the potty are so perfect in the bathroom too.
Thanks for the tour :0)

I love looking at photos of people's homes. I enjoy seeing the different tastes in each persons home. TFS!!
Vintage Victorian used to be so me!! My tastes have changed in the last couple years! You can blame Hobby Lobby for that! :D

I have really enjoyed the tour around your home, I love the little chair and the furniture will look good white, although it kinda still makes me nervous, but it will look great!
