When it comes to pretty homes it’s not all about the interior, but the exterior is extremely important as well.
English houses are so boring-looking with their red bricks, and most English people don’t seem to care about the exterior of their house at all!
I have asked myself many a time whatever happened to the architecture in this country – what’s up with all the millions of ugly terraced houses everywhere? Can the British not do better than that?
What I love about my country of birth – Sweden – is that most houses are unique, and made of wood. People take care of the exterior of their houses and paint them in pretty colours. The house I grew up in is wooden, and purple. Yes, a lovely plum purple colour. Unusual, sure, but that’s what’s so charming about it. It’s funny when you look at the houses on my parents’ street in south east Sweden – the houses range from purple to blue, green, yellow and red. It’s like a pretty rainbow of colourful houses :)
I visited my family home last week and I took the chance to walk around our purple house and snap some photos of it. What do you think? Is purple really that weird? I think it’s absolutely lovely! My mum is very creative as well and has arranged little old fashioned looking decorations around the house, which makes it feel very homey.
