Inside my home – The lounge

Posted by Emma Patterson on

Hi! Come in, come in. Come through to my lounge. Take a seat. Can I make you a cuppa? :) A couple of weeks ago I showed you inside my guest room/office. Today its the living area. Although it isn't where I'm supposed to be working (given such a great office) it is where I spend most of my time. I love this room!

Australian Home

About a year ago, I threw caution to the wind and became somewhat of a drifter. Ever since, I have had more opportunities to live in some amazing temporary dwellings, than I ever would have dreamed of! The latest abode-tunity leads me to pinch myself, as I have everything a girl could ever want including wood panelling, tasteful decorating, a lovable black Labrador called 'Darrell' and even a kitchen sink (the last place I lived in didn't actually have one.) And best of all, the house owner actually thinks I'm doing her a favour by house-sitting! This beautiful house in...
