First question in my first post of a series: why on earth should I buy a house? The answer to this question is not that simple. I remember 15 years ago when friends and family members started doing the same. They married, bought a house and, of course what else, became parents. Without exception they did all the same. Well, there was one exception. Me! Neither did I get married, didn’t buy a house nor did I become a mother. But the situation brought up one essential question. What is wrong with me? It took me quite a long time until I knew only because I don’t have the same needs doesn’t mean something is wrong with me. So it came that I went my very own way without a man, from whom I couldn’t think of the future father of my children. And I didn’t want to live in a house, having a family, but being emotionally very unhappy. And today? What has changed? The people around me started again buying houses! But compared to the past these people are not that young any more. They have worked many years. They have saved their money and now they want to settle down. And what about me? I’m still on my very own way. But I’m not alone anymore. I’m in love with a man who accompanies me on my journey. And in return he takes me on his’. And I think here can be found the answer to the question ‘why on earth should I buy a house’. Because I feel emotionally happy.
But before I’ll buy a house I want to live out step one. Dreaming. I want to dream about things like how should it look like? What kitchen would I like to have? What color should have the bathroom tiles? What about the floor? Wood or stone? Oh boy, so many questions. Since I’m not that much interested in heating systems, isolation and stuff like that I’m going to start with the interior decoration.
I’m totally in love with lamps. And that’s why the first thing I want is a lamp. What else! Since in the phase of dreaming money doesn’t matter I want a lamp by Lindsey Adelman Studio! They produce stunning lamps. All handmade by themselves. No mass products.
