Corinna Perry (@twolittledrakes) takes us for a tour of her colourful home where she lives with her two young sons. Check it out!!
CP :: I’ve always had a passion for home interiors, I’ve been painting and decorating for about 20 years now. I brought and renovated my first house when I was 23, sold it when I was 29 then we brought this place 7 years later in 2016.
I think a house can be a finished product but a home is a work in progress and there’s always new ideas and inspiration to make more improvements.
I suppose I follow trends to a certain degree but I also like to put my own spin on them. I’m not really sure what my style is, I suppose I have eclectic/boho elements. I do feel my style is my own! I don’t go shopping looking for things in particular, I just buy what I love and somehow make it work. My paint colours aren’t always well thought out and I often have regrets and repaint the next day.
Most of my furniture is upcycled in a way that I envision is best for space. I’ve painted and repainted it a lot, I get sick of things after a while and need a change!
I’m a girl on a budget and I would never pay $80 for a cushion. No matter how much I loved it because I just don’t see the value when I can make or buy cushions just as nice for $10?! I’ll probably be sick of them in a year anyway and buy new ones.
I also do a bit of DIY decor. I think if you’re a bit creative you can draw inspiration from things you love then replicate them as to be something no one else has. Especially nowadays where there is no originality and everything is mass produced.
