At home with... Jodi of Che & Fidel

18.6.12

This week I am introducing a new column to Lottie Loves called At home with... It will feature questions and answers with some of my favourite writers, creatives and all round interesting people from around the world, together with a sneak peek into their lovely homes... We are kicking things off with the very lovely Jodi of Che and Fidel... Here goes...


>> Hello, my name is... Jodi
>> I live in... Australia
>> I am a.... Muma, freelance writer and pre-natal yoga teacher
>> My home is a... Three bedroom split-level home with lots of light
>> My favourite part of our home is... The view. We look out to old gum trees. I especially love watching the rain fall down the tall trunks, noticing the bark change colour with the wet
>> My favourite room is... Our bedroom and our glorious kind bed. We currently co-sleep with Poet (my daughter) but on lazy afternoons and most weekend mornings you'll find us all there - reading books, drinking tea, talking about our day
>> My most recent purchase for my home was.. An old dining table from a 95-year-old cottage across the road. It has the patina of cutlery scratches and teapot burns
>> My favourite place to shop for home wares is... The op-shop! There are a few little boutiques close by that sell some gorgeous things too - but I only visit them occasionally
>> For me the most important thing about a home is... Family. When we're all home, I'm happy. I also love the calm that comes with simplicity - hence I de-clutter often and only fill our home with things that I love. 
>> A house is only a home when.... Ever I'm with you. Or so the song goes....

Here are some images of Jodi's lovely home, looking at them makes me feel instantly calm...


Thank you Jodi for sharing your home with us!
