Georgia Ruth – “7 Rooms”.

Hey people! 🙂

The song for today comes from Georgia Ruth’s latest album – “Mai” (which means May, as I’m sure you can figure out) – and I think is one of my favourite songs from this release. In 2017, Georgia Ruth – who is in relationship with Iwan Huws from the band Cowbois Rhos Botwnnog whose one song I shared on here before too – gave birth to a son (and of course, the baby namer and name nerd in me is super curious what his name is, as I’m always into how people name their babies, and I’ve noticed that British folk singers often have fabulous ideas in this department, 😀 but I don’t think they felt like sharing this information with the whole huge world which is absolutely understandable). Anyways, this song is one of a few on this album which have been inspired by her motherhood. It’s about her hospital stay after childbirth and feeling quite lost in there, I suppose as much emotionally in the new situation as literally in all those rooms and other complex structures hospitals tend to have. I like how it starts of a bit depressive and confused, and then becomes more joyous and hopeful.

Question of the day.

What colour is your bedroom? Do you have wallpaper anywhere in your house? What architectural style is your house/apartment? Do you have any interior decor theme?

My answer:

Lol my Mum’s favourite topic. 😀 Well, maybe just a bit less favourite than lifestyle/wellness/health.

As for my room, I think I mentioned before that it is dominated by green and generally in rather calm colours. I’d say it’s pretty girly and dreamy. 😀

As for the wallpaper, yes, we do have wallpaper in our house, it’s actually covered almost entirely in wallpapers. My Mum loves wallpapers and no one here has anything against, so why not, I think. I have a green wallpaper with English flowers on it. My brother has some photowallpaper if that is how such thing should be called properly in English. Zofijka’s room is in her own style, which doesn’t mean her style is so unique, but is glaringly different from Mum’s. And she doesn’t have any wallpaper. Other than that, some wallpapers are all around the house, excluding the bathroom, both toilets and laundry.

I’d say my house is kind of retro. It is a very big house and when we bought it, it seemed very cold and… I’d say unfriendly. But my Mum changed it completely and now it is very cosy. There are lots of old-fashioned furniture and other retro or rustical stuff. There are some elements made of brick. Everything is in rather dark, but warm colours. It isn’t all old-fashioned, there are some modern items and I think it all makes an interesting combination. Usually people, even if they have their houses made in a totally different style, like our house and admire it and say it’s very unique. Every room is a bit different as we are different, but it goes rather harmoniously together, excepts for Zofijka’s room. But it was really important for her to make it all as she wants so her room is kind of Ikea style. Very modern and different from the rest, but typical in comparison to many other rooms in many other houses I think.

How about your houses? 🙂
