The image of a Great British Home I have in my head is my three lovely boys running to hug me across the large lawn, the dog wagging his tail and me sinking into a comfy, large sofa. The cry of "Your Bubble Bath Is Ready, My Darling" wafts down the stairs as I glide up the plush carpeted stairs to my sparkling clean, candle filled bathroom.
Lovely eh? It's great to dream and always good to have a goal!
In reality, I am always glad to be home with our old, but comfy sofa and I love to relax in my deep bath as they are the things that make my home, well mine.
So what makes a home? What makes a Great British Home?
Firstly, the home is not just a house, it is a home, its where we belong, it's ours.
|So Comfortable, Our Sofa is Immediately Sleep Inducing!|
I believe Great British Homes are not minimalistic, they are comfortable, everything is in reach.
Great British Bathrooms are functional and not staged. They are warm and cosy.
The kitchens are used, they are not clinical, they are the heart of the home.
And most importantly we love to love our furniture. We are sentimental and we do buy things to last. We buy quality and we buy British where we can from trusted retailers we have grown up with like John Lewis.
So there's my romantic view of my ideal and my belief of a Great British Home. I then took the #GreatBritishHome Quiz sponsored by Victoria Plumb. The results really surprised me!
I was named as Mrs Glamorous!
Quite pleased, I can agree with that, I can be glam with a little effort. Look!

And my home style?- Well that made me laugh even more! Out Loud. And tell several friends. And then post it to Twitter.
Turns out my Style is that of TOWIE Chic! I am liked to Joey Essex and Sam Faiers. I have not, I add EVER watched TOWIE, so I shall take that as a compliment, grab the Victoria Plum catalogue and upgrade ones bathroom to a glamorous Princeton! After all, let's not forget, I AM a glamour princess!
