Home is where the heart is, and a woman openly shared her heart when she posted pictures of her humble home online.

A woman named Mandy Lekhotla took to the popular Facebook group "Make your bedroom Beautiful with Thembi's Linen" to share pictures of her humble abode.

The three pictures posted on the Facebook group showed different angles of the room she stayed in — the sleeping area, a corner designated for her bags and camping chair, and the area where she kept her mini fridge and TV.

Social media users comment on woman's home

The pictures of the woman's humble home brought sincere messages from the online community, with some offering advice to Mandy.

Noxolo Filip showed concern over the TV on the fridge, asking Mandy to hang it on the wall. Noxolo added:

"Try to get a bed. Second-hand if needed. You work so hard trying to make ends meet, and when you rest, you need to rest comfortably. Also, you can get sick sleeping on the floor as winter is coming on hard."

Cndie Mageba shared in the comment section:

"Humble beginnings, but keep your room clean and make up your bed and blankets."

Jimmy Kgaogelo positively stated to Mandy:

"Never look back. You now have an opportunity to build and invest in yourself."

Interior decorator provides advice on humble home

Kgahlego Rasebotsa, an interior decorator and owner of Interior Bubble, shared with Briefly News how Mandy can make adequate space for herself in her living area:

"I would advise dividing the room. She can use a curtain rail and hang a curtain. In this way, she can separate the bedroom from her living room and even the kitchen."

The interior design company boss also shared how Mandy can affordably make her living area look and feel more like home. Kgahlego says:

"How you treat your walls in your home makes a great difference. She can paint her walls a neutral colour."

Kgahlego also advises Mandy to buy an inexpensive couch and a couple of occasional chairs and put up wall paintings or artificial trees.
