TÊTE-À-TÊTE & PLATE has posted a beautiful essay and accompanying photoshoot, on the topic of staying at home. We love the concept of cherishing the simple, quiet moments amidst our busy lives. Words and photography by Natalie Masli.
"In a world ruled by extroverts and all things social media, it is easy to overlook the importance of introversion and slowing down. Opting to stay at home is frequently seen as antisocial or uninteresting behaviour by the general person, but it is a choice homebodies make, with the better knowledge that there are pleasures to be found in the little things in life too"
"There is something undeniably graceful in the peace and quiet of the times when you are alone at home, and a refined freedom which is seldom felt elsewhere. The ability to go about your day un-judged by others and the capacity to do whatever you want that is so liberating. You can spoil yourself with the book you have been putting off in favour of work, or catch up on the latest edition of your magazine of choice. And the beauty of reading in your own abode is that, not only are you snugly tucked into your favourite reading corner, but you are also transporting your mind to distant places and dreamy scenarios, far away from your daily life and your daily troubles."
