Inside Your Home...

Thursday, July 15, 2010
(via pinterest)
Whenever I take a walk with my dogs I tend to look on houses or apartment buildings and I can't stop wondering about the kind of people live there and if those places or designs reflect their personality...Obviously I don’t know the owners but I create pictures of who they are, what they do, based on their decor....On the other hand it would be interesting to know, what our place says about us...
So what do you think, does your home reflect your personality?

Have a wonderful afternoon, Sweeties:)

Ps: Our friends tend to agree that it does, but they know us....:)

So true. I'm the same way--always sneaking peaks into windows and doorways as I walk down the street.

Diana I totally like to see inside when I take walks too!! Kinda feel like a cuckoo and give a wave if they see me. oops!

I'm not sure my home reflects me anymore. Lots of change this past couple years. Not a lot of moolah to make the decorating changes though. sucky.

Krystal said...

I totally do this too, which is why I love taking walks at night....creeper much?? :)

I've created whole personalities and stories for the lives of the people who live in the apartment block opposite me - there's the lonely old man who reads his newpaper, the chain-smoking woman with cats...

Emilie said...

So true!
Lovely ;)

the inside of my home TOTAL reflects ME - not the outside, sadly, tho - i haven't even TOUCH the outside - and it looks like a homeless person would live @ my house :o(

ps - my Niece is awesome, she's 4.5 years old - we have SUCH a good time together - our tea party was AMAZING - even though i forgot about the biscuits in the oven and burnt them :o( .. thanks for asking lovey!!!

*kiss kiss*

My apartment doesn't reflect my personality...yet...but when I move in December things will change. I plan on moving to another apartment that fits my personality a lot more!

I love the picture though, and I too love to walk around the houses and imagine what their life looks like, sometimes they live more extravagant and other times they are doing worse off than me (in my own imagination that is)

Barbara said...

Well i do think the same way as you do. I think that houses reflect the way we are, maybe not the desing itself (because if you buy an apartment the building is the same for the rest of people living there) but the decoration does tell much about us. I love wandering around places of others.. it's says a lot about them. I like to imagine which kind of life they have, what do they like to do an all that jazz!

have a nice day!!

i know what you mean, thought the same things myself today when i snuck out of the office for a walk at lunch time. great way to forget about work for a while, looking at peoples gardens and curtain fabrics! jxx

Keith said...

I think my apartment pretty much reflects who I am and what I'm about.

I always like thinking about the people in homes, etc. as I pass by them.

jemina said...

I sure hope so, I think my house reflects my personality :)), xoxo

Aurelia Mattos said...

Hi dear. I think our home has to have to do with our personality.

Alely L. said...

lol! i tend to do the same thing...however i dont get as far as thinking about whether their home reflects their personality. i just like to peek into the beautifully decorated homes. : )
yes, i think my home reflects my personality.

photohogger said...

That's a very cool gate! I'm not sure if our house reflects who we are - we haven't really furnished it much, yet haha :)

Have a great day Diana!

Dancing Branflake said...

Mine does not at all. But I love looking at others, it's so comforting. I really can't explain why.

SogniSorrisi said...

I think homes are like wedding dresses--they say a lot about a person.

Emily said...

Yep I totally do this too!! I love to imagine everything about the people that live there.

I definitely think my home reflects my personality and the hubbys. We work really hard to make home a piece of us.

Jess said...

I'm still working on decorating my new house, but yes - my goal is to have it reflect my personality. Wish me luck!!

Gina said...

my home most definitely does not reflect my personality because i still live at home with my parents, but thats all changing in a few short months & we can't wait to make our new apartment a home :)

Elle Sees said...

i think so

Annie said...

I adore this pic, Diana! And so perfect for the post :)

Lillian Chang said...

I love to imagine other people's lives too :)
I hope my home reflects my personality!! I think it does - my space is so important to me. I need to create a space that looks like me for me to feel so comfortable that I can spend hours there and never be bored :) Having a space that resembles you can also remind you who you are, when you need that sometimes :)

Krysten @ After 'I Do' said...

My home totally does not, at least not on the outside. But it's an apartment building, so what can you do?

Couture Carrie said...

My home definitely reflects my personality!

Love this pic!

xoxox,

Valerie said...

Diana, I do the exact same thing when I'm walking by houses! I love checking things out and seeing what other people are like. I think homes do reflect the people inside. Have a great day!

Poppies and Sunshine said...

I do this same thing when I look at homes or apartments! I think parts of my home reflect who I am and other parts could use some work!

thingsIlove said...

I do the same thing too! My room reflects who I am. :)

orange sugar home said...

perfect photo for the post. I do the same exact thing. I love to walk in my neigborhood and check out the gardens, the lawn decorations, the paint color of the home....so fun!!

Tamara Nicole said...

I love to look at other people's houses and decor! Even their yard:-)

Ours kind of shows our personalities, but it's always a constant changing process around here, but that's how I am! Lol

Dominique said...

I think the artwork on a person's walls is like a window into their soul. I hope people see the real me in what I hang on mine.

Lucy said...

ooh how interesting! Im actually a little bit obsessd with other peoples houses, I pften get the urge to cycle around and take photos of beautiful houses that I wish i lived in! I feel a little bit like a spy though because I don't want people to spot me snapping their house! haha.
That image is sooo pretty, thats just the kind of pic i#d take - a sneaky one! haha
Luckily i feel my house reflects me even though its my parents one, i love it, it has a bright yellow door and lots of flowers :)

Happily, I know my home does reflect me and my style. I've had very close friends of mine, who live far away, come visit me and say "Oh, this place is so you". It's a nice feeling.
