RISING FROM THE ASHES
Back in September 2019 I had a chimney fire at the barn which resulted in the sitting room, guest bedroom and back hallway being gutted. I lost 90% of the items in those rooms, this week the wood floors are being fitted then I can do what I do best and that's design the interior decor.
But what I wanted to talk about was the impact it has had on me emotionally and whether I can feel safe and secure in the barn again.
When I talk to potential clients and speak at network meetings it is always about making your home feel like the safest place in the world where you can leave the day behind, shut off, put on your pjs and relax.
Am I getting that now at the barn?
In some ways yes as it has given me the chance to decorate and create the interiors that I want and love.
But in other ways no I can't light the fire even though it is new and everything has been replaced, we had a power surge a few nights ago (the whole area did) I couldn't rest until I had checked every room.
The point of this blog is that homes are not just roofs over our heads they play a big part in our emotional well being and if your home is not hugging you then maybe I can help?
