‘Dwelling Gawking’ (AKA ‘property porn’)

OK, I’ll confess. There are few things I love more than to be nosey and look inside people’s homes. It seems I’m in good company as many people express a weakness for ‘property porn’ and numerous TV programmes are dedicated to it here in the UK. Perhaps it is something you can’t resist, either?

So when I discovered the website http://www.dwellinggawker.com a number of years ago, I was really pleased. It’s basically a site full of links to homes around round the world, most of them beautiful and inspirational. There are various categories you can search in, such as ‘small spaces’, ‘before and after’ or you can search for country names. I suspect I have probably idled away a fair few hours on here over the years.

Since the advent of Pinterest and Instagram, there probably isn’t much that is truly unique to Dwelling Gawker, but I still enjoy using it. The search category options make it easy to search for something new and different.

I appreciate various different types of interior style, though my current favourite is Scandinavian. In particular, the use of natural materials such as wood and leather, the presence of natural light and pale colour tones and simple, uncluttered style appeal to me. The photo above incorporates most of these elements and has a wonderful sense of space, don’t you think?

As we have three young children, our house isn’t quite (or let’s be honest, anywhere near) the uncluttered, minimalist haven it would be if it was inhabited only by my husband and I. Still, I try my hardest to keep on top of the clutter and everything in its proper place. There will be more on home organisation and the tools I use to organise ours in my future blog posts, so please click follow if you haven’t already 🙂 Sign up link to the right hand side ->
