home sweet home reveals ♥

i absolutely love seeing other people's homes... i like seeing a glimpse into their lives, what's important to them, what are their lifestyles like and of course, how they've designed and styled their homes. i like visiting personal blogs to see what people have done with their spaces and in some cases, how they've transformed them into their own.

mikko sometimes calls me a 'peeping jenny'... i can't help it if when we walk outside in the evening and people leave all their curtains open and lights on, they're just asking me to peek inside and take a look at their homes... 
i also like going to open houses... they're (impersonal) invitations for us curious ones to go and check out homes that are on the market. visiting open houses in my own neighbourhood is great for the sake of getting ideas of what could potentially be done to our own house (we live in an area that was developed in the 1920's... it's full of semis much like our own). although i don't think i'd like the actual work of a real estate agent, i would love to be (personally) invited to clients' homes to see how they look before they are staged.

i'll be posting a series of 'home sweet home' reveals from when i visited finland this past summer. maybe these will give you a bit of an idea of how finns live, what is important to them, what their lifestyles are like, and of course, how they've designed and styled their homes. of course, this is just a small selection of homes that i visited - i encourage you to check out some of the finnish blogs that i follow...

here's a glimpse of tomorrow's post...
