Keeping it real

I love this post because it makes me feel normal and makes me realize that all those beautifully perfect homes you see in those magazines are not normal.

I mean, look at this beautiful photo I posted a few days ago. Rug is perfectly angled and chairs look perfectly inviting. Why can’t my living room nook look like this?

Well, here’s the before picture.

I’m not sure why that before picture makes me feel better. Perhaps it just makes me feel a little more normal and I love knowing that all of those “perfect” spaces you see in magazines are really just normal peoples homes who live, eat and sleep just like you and me.

Cheers to a vintage life well lived.
