Attention to Detail

Attention to Detail. When people come to your home what is the first thing you want them to see and why?

I would like them to see that the house is generally tidy. There are a few things lying around but the house really isn't grubby. When people arrive at my front door they are actually stepping straight into the dining/living/kitchen area of the house. It is the main living area so it is hard to keep it spotless, but I try my best to keep it looking at least partially tidy.

Before they get to my front door they have walked up a path past some gardens & on to a patio. I try to keep these gardens well weeded & looking nice. The patio needs a bit of tidying at the moment but soon I will be out there sweeping it off & cleaning it all up ready for summer.

Nothing more inviting to guests than a lovely garden walkway! Sounds very nice...great post.

That's the problem with combination living, dining and kitchen areas, isn't it? Have a bit of the same problem myself, LOL.

I'm with you...I like my house to be tidy and clean. I'm not good at that though. Seems like I have to do flight of the bumblebee before someone comes over. I bet your walkway is beautiful. I would love to have something like that.

I bet it looks beautiful! Isn't it funny how we all obsess over how our house looks to others? If we all just relaxed we'd be more comfortable. Whenever I see someone else's house a bit messy, I feel better about my own. !!

I love to look at gardens as I walk up to a house's door. I find myself saying I wish I had that flower, or how can I get a cutting of that!
