A well-crafted seating arrangement and beautiful artwork is nice, but it's a personal touch in your home is what makes people want to be there. Gorgeous decor feels false and stiff without pieces of ourselves woven into our design fabric.
Here are five quick and easy personal touches that add warmth to your home:
1. Beloved books.
Not only do books make quaint decor, but they also make great conversation starters.
Maybe this is the Southern in me coming out, but I adore monograms. Personal, classic, stylish.
This is somewhat of a given, but so many people choose to skimp on the family photos in their home decor! I love to be surrounded by the faces of my friends and family. Especially since I live several states away from most of them!
4. Sentimental keepsakes.
Yes, I actually have a passion for cats! Make that a lifelong passion. When you love something, surround yourself with it! Since it would be quite expensive (and impractical!) to fill my house with real cats, I fill it with felt ones, wood ones, glass ones. They always brighten my day.
Make your home a personal space and not just a beautiful one and you'll create a happy atmosphere filled with warmth.
