Dorothy Damage's Profile

My household uses our fireplace as game storage. We have board games that were either given to us or found in charity shops and an old lamp that we found, with Moroccan lanterns on each side (as seen here in an old post, before I moved the board games into the fireplace: http://dorothydamage.wordpress.com/2012/06/02/maison-damage/)
Decorating Ideas: Fill Up the Fireplace

Odd, I've had a completely different experience after living in London for five years. I've seen a lot of gorgeous homes, from Georgian and Victorian homes that still have original features, to ex-council flats and 30s/50s houses that have been lovingly designed and/or modernised. British people in a lot of ways aren't afraid to be a bit mad/fearless, and the result are some lovely, cozy, inviting homes with a range of influences. And with the range of markets, design and furniture shops (in all price points), there's no excuse not to make your home the way you want it. I'm afraid that your stereotypes are just based on unfortunate experiences. And if you've had such poor experiences, why not just fix it up yourself! I've spent the past year fixing up my old Victorian and I'm proud of the results (and there's nothing more British than making your home into your castle).
