How to do… HOME PORN

….not the kind where one might set the mood lighting, shave your legs, hit the RECORD switch and do sexual gymnastics.

HOME PORN : As defined by Woogipedia.
“Nice stuff in rooms”
I am not good at home porn. I appreciate it and can enjoy being in it, but I find it difficult to create it. There are many fine blogs which can teach you home porn. Here are but a few….



(By the way, if you have an interiors blog or know any great ones, please leave the details in the comments. I am getting into this porn in a big way.)

But getting back to my recent experience with home porn, I will need to give you the background info.

You might recall our family had suffered from 2 deaths, quite close together. My cousin Vinnie and his wife Anna-Maria flew back from Brazil, where they live, to attend the first funeral. When they returned home, they were met with the devastating news that my cousin Mark, Vinnie’s brother, had suddenly passed away.
So they came back. And decided to stay on for a few months to be with family. They needed a base, somewhere to stay and of course, I have a little house called Jabba the Hut, so that is where they are now ensconced.

Anna-Maria is Brazilian and when she talks, if you shut your eyes, you could swear you were in the room with Gloria from Modern Family. She asked me if I would mind if she made a few changes to the old girl, as she is a home porn aficionado.

I told her to go for it. 

Yesterday I barely recognised her!

Anna-Maria outdid herself. She LOVES phaffing about with bits, placing things in sensible places, looking at colour and textures and making things work. The only thing that was added was the white leather couch that I found for $395 in a second hand store, and the rest was all there. Just in the wrong spot!

She vignetted the SHIT out of Jabba! And as a result, she has now been elevated into a very sweet place to be.

Even Barbara wanted in on the action….

The thing about Jabba the Hut is that I want everything to be second hand, and so far so good, apart from one rug. I have mainly found things from Vinnies, the side of the road or at garage sales. 

The second phase of her beautification is a paint festivus that Alan will be controlling. And with the rain positively pissing down overnight, now that she is a Waterfront Property, no doubt her value would have risen.

Home porn.
