Hello, and a very warm welcome to my blog, So House Proud.

My name is Nina Camacho (pronounced Coo-mah-shoe); I am a Bath Spa University publishing graduate with an interest in craft and upcycling and have just recently joined Mollie Makes and Gathered by MM magazine as production assistant.

I would like to share with you my journey toward budget furnishing – and hopefully inspire and assist you with your own decor projects.

In the last three years, I have furnished three-quarters of my home with secondhand finds or kindly given hand-me-downs. I would like to show you just how easy decorating your home with old stuff can be.

I live in a quaint little town that’s jam-packed with vintage and charity shops, secondhand stores and fabric shops where I overindulge in my love for all things aged.

I rearrange the contents of my home at least once every two months, just so it feels like I’ve moved house again.

But enough about me… please enjoy the blog.

Yours truly,
