DON’T MAKE THE MISTAKE MOST HOME OWNERS MAKE!
Ask yourself the question “Is my modernized, expensive house a HOME just yet?”
You will find that typically, many home owners CANNOT say YES!
What do you define as a proper, REAL home?
Well, if we were to give our understanding of it:
Your HOME is an extension of YOU! It is the sum of the wealth of knowledge you have experienced in your life and a place where you can rest easy knowing you’re safe, in the environment of your choice and personal taste.
And most people just buy a house.
Millions of home owners make the mistake of going for the “new and modern” and sacrifice that “homely” part of their HOME too! These designs end up looking impersonal and completely dispassionate!
Have you been feeling as though your house isn’t as homely as you would like it to be?
Here are a few elements that show you whether or not your HOUSE isn’t a HOME just yet!
• DOES YOUR HOME LACK TEXTURE?
Beige walls, beige furniture – pretty much paint ALL OVER! If your house lacks the gritty texture of brick or the woody texture of… well WOOD, for example – it may be time to consult your interior designer as to the PREPOSTEROUSLY BLAND state of the place you are SUPPOSED to call home!
• MATCHING FURNITURE SETS?
Having a “set” of items typically means “DON’T BREAK THE SET” – a very limited and restrictive idea to have in the place you call your HOME! Feel free to mix and mash up your furniture designs in a way that makes your home unique and comfortably stylish!
• IS YOUR HOUSE DEAD OF ALL LIFE?
Typical generic HOUSES have the tendency to forget about the natural elements within – opting for cold marble counter tops and tiles, creating a ridiculously COLD and UNFORGIVING landscape to feel homely in! Install some plantation shutters and wooden floors in there! Don’t submit yourself to the sterile lifestyle of tiles only throughout your home.
Add aromatic elements to stimulate the olfactory senses eg vanilla or jasmine, which gives an aura and certainty of “I’m home!”
Do you feel as though some of these have struck a note within your home?
