Neighbouring Houses Reflect Polar Opposite Interiors

Interiors are so fundamental.  You open the front door and you in an interior.  How you decorate and manage one is so individual though.  I sometimes get to see inside the neighbouring houses, not often as we’re all very busy people.  To describe the difference would take ages, suffice to say mine is decorated in early 2000s modern, some scandi minimal and a little bit of comfort.  One neighbour has gone for the vintage 1970s look – very stark streamlined sofa and matching armchair.  No arms on either, both items look like public amenity seating in fact.  Not for them an oak sideboard  – no, they have bold shelving units with everything neatly positioned, colour coded books and vinyl albums – these alone tell me that someone in that house may have a problem loosening up occasionally!   Brutally unattractive at first thought but everything works well.   The other neighbour is quite the opposite – it’s all pretty chinzy and romantic frills.  Each bedroom has a hand made roman blind to match the bedding and the lounge could be a little country cottage.  Fantastic contasts!
