Welcome to BrocanteHome. 

Are you like ME? Do you yearn for a life less ordinary within the pretty sanctuary of a home you love to bits? Are you at your happiest when you are sitting wrapped in your favorite quilt with a cup of tea in your hand and a new stack of library books at your side? Are you putting your heart and soul into creating a home that nurtures your family and gives your most creative self a voice...?

 

Then YES you are like me (yay!), so I know that sometimes life within your own four walls feels overwhelming. I know that sometimes it feels like all work, no play and very little reward and I know that all too often it feels as though we are sacrificing our most essential selves, our most creative selves to all the demands domesticity makes upon us...

I know because once upon a time I felt like that too.

But not any more. For now, even when life is totally topsy-turvy, my home remains my sanctuary and my days are defined by the routines, rituals and teeny celebrations I created to make sure that wherever I lived, my house would always feel like a scrumptiously pretty springboard for my soul, and would never again become the chaotic, exhausting prison it once threatened to be...

You see domesticity doesn't have to be dull.

It doesn't have to be the chains that bind you to a life of drudgery. It really doesn't. In fact home can be so much more than just the four walls that shelter you from the rest of the world. It can be your studio. Your workplace. A home for your soul. It can (and should) be your sanctuary. Your salon and your boudoir...

And I have got all the routines, rituals, puttery treats and rather bossy advice you need to make your own home, however imperfect or temporary it maybe, into all of these things and so much more.

You CAN live a life less ordinary but are you REALLY ready?

Ready to dream big, fat, beautiful domestic dreams and  willing to channel your whole self into making them happen?

Ready to spend time and bundles of energy on learning how to create the kinds of routines and rituals that will have your very own Muse doing a happy little polka?

And above all else truly committed to making it happen? Because this I know for sure: home wasn't built in a day...

If you can answer YES to all these questions, then Darling you have come to the right place. Simply set aside ten minutes a day to check in here at BrocanteHome and day by day I will teach you to anchor your days with routine, lift your spirits with ritual, and celebrate the teeniest of victories with joy, style and gratitude...

The Journal...

The BrocanteHome blog is where it all began thirteen years ago. The place where I share all the little snippets of life, love and vintage housekeeping I enjoy with an audience of women just like me...

Today there are over 2500 posts, telling my story with all the honesty I can muster, charting the growth of BrocanteHome and sharing the routines, rituals and celebrations essential to a life less ordinary...
