A good look

Home (South Africa) - - YOUR SPACE -

God­frey Mal­ibe of Acorn­hoek writes

I’ve been a vic­tim of my home’s in­te­rior look for far too long; it’s bleak and so unin­spir­ing. Well, l can for­give my­self be­cause I lived alone for a few years be­fore I got mar­ried.

I used to buy things for my­self, es­pe­cially fur­ni­ture, but I wasn’t con­cerned with match­ing styles or colours. Af­ter get­ting mar­ried, I re­alised that my house needed a se­ri­ous redo. My wife is ac­tu­ally en­forc­ing changes and there’s no re­fus­ing her de­mands. She started giv­ing me lessons on how to buy with pur­pose and I now know how to go on an ef­fec­tive shop­ping spree!

Home mag­a­zine also came in handy. I may not have started yet, but I’m putting money away for that life-chang­ing makeover in the near fu­ture. I have come to re­alise that if your house and yard look good, you feel great and pos­i­tive about your life.
