HOW DO YOU DECIDE HOW TO DECORATE AND DESIGN YOUR HOME/YOUR LIFE?
Easy. E A S Y !
Ask yourself: If some one spent several days visiting my house, how would I want them to recount their time here?
How you answer that question will give you insight into what your home should reflect about you. Just remember to throw out pretentiousness and airs. A real home with well-loved belongings and sunlight streaming through squeaky-clean windows (I need some of those!) filled with the sound of life will impress everytime. Plus be a place you you will want to nestle into every single day. It isn’t perfection. Repeat that, please: it is not perfection. It is authenticity. Edit, putter and enjoy the process.
And isn’t home, really, after all, the sum of the people living there?
Stef shared this with me the other day from the movie “The Notebook” (yes, yes, yes, you should see it!).
When Noah’s grown children were trying to get him to move back “home” leaving his wife, Allie, in the nursing facility as she was failing, he said,
“This is my home now. Your mother is my home.”
See? Nicholas Sparks knows.
