#GreatBritishHome Challenge – Are we really Mr and Mrs Glamorous?

#GreatBritishHome ChallengeVictoria Plumb has created a really funky “What’s Your Celebrity Home Style” quiz. There are just a few questions to answer and a lot of interesting facts to read if you want.

Did you know that on average, Britons take 1.3 baths a week and take 4.4 showers? Weird numbers wouldn’t you agree?

Anyhow, I wanted to know the answer to this question – “What’s Your Celebrity Home Style” – so, I took the quiz… apparently we are Mr and Mrs Glamorous 🙂

Mr and Mrs GlamorousDo I agree with this assessment? Partially, to a point I guess…

I do not think that everything about us screams glamour… at times it is far and away from it but we do crave home comforts… but then don’t we all?

When we bought our house six years ago we were not so sure what we wanted it to be like – decor wise. Coming from rented accommodation where we were not allowed to change almost anything it was hard to pick what we like. I think the biggest problem was that we were quite unsure about our own style and preferences… with time, once we lived in our little “doll house” (this is how my Mum refers to our house, as comparing to their house it is so tiny)our vision become much clearer. Six years in and our house is still a “work in progress”.

If you are a regular follower of my blog (and if not…why not?) you will know that just a few weeks ago we did an on suite makeover; one of the bathrooms which has never been unused since we bought the place. We went for natural, calming colours and simple white and silver accessories.
Is it glamorous? Not sure. But what I am sure of is that it is nice and pleasant to be in. It feels home like and I think that is what it should all be about.
We all should try and create spaces we love and feel comfortable in; after all it is Your home, so make it Yours.

  1. I got the same answer and think it is nothing like our style. I wondered if it was because we don’t have a style so my answers were more or less evenly spread across the options!

  2. the result: my style is most like lady mary or lord gillingham from downton abbey hahahaha Our house is a neverending construction area. I love our house but in my next live I never buy a house from 1905 again, that’s for sure :o) I like your bathrooms, you did a great job. what’s the name of the terra-cotta like color on your wall?

  3. I love the bright colours you’ve used in your bathrooms, I wish I was able to make my home more ‘glamourous’, sadly it’s a rented property and I’ll never feel like it’s ‘my’ home if you get me.

  4. I love what you’ve done to your space. I’m not sure if ‘glamorous’ fits- but maybe if it translates as doing things your way, probably? Might be intrigued enough to the quiz now!

I love all comments :-)
