I moved here in January from the big smoke London. I wanted to start fresh so packed light and got on the big jet plane.
Moving to a new country can be a pretty daunting experience. Unfamiliar with my new surroundings I had to find a place to live, pretty tough yes!
I wanted to find a place that I could play around with and create a little haven for myself. Not knowing Philadelphia I came across the first place that was safe and pleasant and took it.
Now I’m having fun making it my own. I love using my walls to create collages of inspirational thought; I collect random photo frames to trap my most memorable photos hang trinkets from family and friends and feature dried flowers wherever possible.
When I have friends over they engage themselves in the floor length mirror while I burn my multi coloured candles, dripping wax over wine bottles. The Diptyque scent usually fills the air while Nick Drakes plays subtly in the background.
My place is almost there, it’s nearly reached that comfort zone.
Starting from scratch is the most refreshing thing and letting your personality pour into a new home is quite satisfying don’t you think?
