It probably hasn't gone unnoticed that this blog has undergone a serious makeover, hasn't it? Not only did I change the name to my own, I personalised the categories as well. The purpose? Well, I've never been good at focusing on only one aspect of my character and specialising in one 'kind' of blog topic. I found it didn't really paint a picture of the person behind the blog and so I decided to just take the leap and expose the real deal. The whole package, so to speak. The first one I'll be introducing to you is my obsession with decorating and personalising my apartment, the little piece of my personality I dubbed 'the decorating geek'. Here goes.

Oh, so SO much. Putting tiny pieces of my personality into my apartment's interior is a thing I think about every day. That and reorganising, looking for new and hip home decor trends and even colour-picking: all things I see myself blogging about in the future.

The Decorating Geek... It does have something of a double meaning. First and foremost as in 'geek' referring to my love of decorating in general, but also as in that I love leaving pop culture hints (well, they're not very subtle are they? Haha!) scattered around my interior. In fact, they're the central theme the minute you enter - and check-in to, please do if you're ever here! - Echo Base. I absolutely love stacking my desk, shelves, walls, etc. with things right out of my favourite cinematic or written universes, and am often on the lookout for new additions to the collection.

I am a big fan of the botanical and urban jungle interior trends and having as much greenery indoors as you can. It's safe to say that I have the ambition of becoming quite the green thumb, but honestly... I'm not there yet. I F up all the time and have to throw nice plants away more often than not, but it does occupy my spare time a lot. So as I learn more about keeping all sorts of plants (and keeping them safe from - say - cats), I would love to share the dos and don'ts with you.
And they just work so well in pictures, don't they? They're the ultimate prop!

Whether it's Halloween, Christmas or just a tv series you love that's at the centre of attention: they're all topics that can inspire a new twist or detail to add to your interior so to create a fresh and fun space to live in. For example, I am currently loving this letterboard quote I found on Pinterest. It's both funny as hell AND giving me a pat on the back every time I look at it.
So there you go! The mystery that was this first category has been uncovered. ;) Stay tuned for more posts and other categories for you to get to know!
Q: what do you think of the big metamorphosis? Any decorating geeks amongst you? Be sure to let this one know!
