Everyone wants a place to call home, somewhere they can unwind and enjoy! Whether you just moved into your own apartment, bought a new house, have lived in the same house for year, or maybe your living in a place that isn't your own, and you want to bring that "welcome home" feel into your space!! Here are favorite tips and ideas to make your house/space feel homey and welcoming!!
IT STARTS AT THE FRONT DOOR//
Your front door is the first thing you and your guest see when they come to your home! A front porch says a lot about a house in my opinion. Its the first impression to your whole home! I want my front porch to be inviting, I want it to say "welcome home" to everyone that steps inside!! Living in an apartment myself I don't exactly have a huge front porch to decorate, but I still love to add a wreath, a welcoming door mat, and beautiful flower or plants! I love the way it really sets apart our apartment from all the rest and adds such a personal feel!
Throw pillows are my favorite ways to spice up a room!! I really feel that they make a space cozy and inviting! There're so many different patterns and designs to choose from that can really make a statement in anyroom! My husband thinks I am the crazy throw pillow lady because when we got married I insisted on having 9 pillows on our bed..true story!!
FLORAL'S & GREENERY//
I love to add some kind of flower or greenery in every room to brighten up the space! My first choice is to of course use real flowers and plants, but depending on the season and what my local grocery store has I tend to have a mixture of real and fake floral's!
Personal photos and pictures are my favorite way to really personalize my space and really make it feel like home! There's something so comforting and inviting walking into a home filled with personal photos of your family, friends, or even your dog!
