Reality TV is something I looked down on for a long time. I could not understand how they can put bunch of teenagers in a house, give them alcohol and lock them down. Then invite millions of people watching this epic drama. I just could not see what good could that do to anyone.
Reality TV is not only about drunken teenagers in a house. It is also lifestyle, cooking, serving, competitions and much much more. I could not find my deal from reality TV. Lately it has started to catch me though. I found the interior design shows. These are great shows that gives you a lot of inspiration. There are many channels that are airing interior design shows almost non-stop. I find it very nice that in interior design shows the inspiration is taken from the environment and the time of year. If it’s fall I can look at the show and see the inspiration taken from the spring, summer, winter or fall and then get inspired myself.
Next step after inspiration in my case is always to go to nearest Rautia, a Finnish hardware store (in Finnish: rautakauppa), and just start looking around for all the elements i would need for a new decoration. I usually find it quite fast and after that im already on the way to become the next top interior design master. At least in my head.
I change my interior design at least four times a year. I my apartment to reflect on the time of year because i live quite strongly the different times of year. On spring i want my apartment to say welcome summer. On fall i like my apartment to say I am ready for winter.
This gives me great chances to express myself as I am not that artistic but i really have an eye for interior design.
Reality TV gives me the spark and most of the small innovations i use in my apartment. It is a great thing if you can pick up many small elements and implement them into real life. Many times i even go and ask the staff in my local Rautia if something is possible or not. Usually everything is possible and they even tell you how. Great service, great show. I love my interior design.
