With the devastation we’ve had lately from floods and Hurricane Irma, I’ve been reminded of the importance of home. I’ve realized I take for granted having a roof over my head, a place to retreat from life.
None of us are promised a perfect tomorrow, so why are we waiting to create a home that makes us feel comfortable, happy, and protected?
My heart goes out to all of the people across our country having to start over and rebuild. Now more than ever, it is important to #Livewell by creating a home you love- one that makes you want to retreat to from the craziness of this world.
It’s deciding what makes you happy and taking the steps to create it. For instance, is family important to you? If so, think about creating a gallery wall of your favorite family photos.
I do this all the time- I’ll designate a specific hall, a wall, or both in a home where photos can be displayed. Here are a few from a couple of my projects:
For some, #LivingWell might be having friends over. Casual impromptu dinners are always great, but don’t be afraid to pull out your china, silver, crystal. If using these things brings you joy, pull them out-stop saving them for tomorrow. Let’s enjoy today.
I love to create a spot somewhere in the home that clients can call their own. A cozy corner that calls their name.
A cute couple I helped with a design/build liked to sit at their island for their meals. If you are going to sit at the counter for a few meals each day, why not make it functional and pretty and unique?
For today, I hope you are inspired to find ways to turn your home into one you love…….
Here’s to creating a home you enjoy and can #livewell in–
