5 Tips for Putting Love Into Your Home Design
Now, here are 5 tips for pouring the maximum amount of love into your home design!
Paint It Yourself
Painting your own home—even just one room—is a relatively simple task that will nonetheless feel quite rewarding when you finish!
Plus, you’ll save money and will be able to take pride in the fact that you put your own time and energy into your home.
The same goes for really any DIY task. Pouring yourself into your home design—rather than outsourcing it—is a great way to put extra love into your home!
Don’t Forget Nature
We tend to forget, but human beings are animals! We tend to feel best when we have nature around us. So, don’t forget to bring some nature into your home!
You can do this easily with flowers, plants, succulents, etc.
Be sure to choose your personal favorites and your house will be full of a nature that reflects who you are as a unique individual!
Keep Your Senses in Mind
Flowers and plants can delight both your eyes and nose. To put as much love as possible in your home, keep all your senses in mind!
We all have our favorite scents, colors, textures, etc. The more of these you put in your home, the more you will feel… well, at home!
Textures Can Make a Big Difference
Piggybacking on the last section, textures are often underestimated!
Touch is a hugely important sense for our well-being and comfort, however, so be sure to fill your home with textures that you appreciate.
That may be blankets, pillows, carpet or hardwood flooring, whatever you prefer!
Follow Your Own Vision
Most importantly, to have a home that radiates with love, you need to pursue your personal vision!
Sure, you may need to compromise with your partner, roommates, etc., but the home design should ultimately be about creating a space that you love.
There’s no better way to design a home you love than by following your own love-filled vision!
It can be tempting to pursue advice from YouTubers and blogs (like this one), but at the end of the day, it should be unique to you and your own tastes!
Putting love into your home design might seem easy, but it’s important to keep the above tips in mind!
In any case, you’ll end up with a home you love as long as you stick to your personal vision and your true identity.
The result will be a home that you love and in which you feel completely and totally comfortable, which is one of life’s little blessings.
