What makes a house a home?

Your house, apartment provides you a shelter, but it’s not necessarily a home. A home is where, as they say “the heart is”. A home is a safe emotional haven, a place to feel comfortable and at peace, a place that’s warm, inviting and reflects your personal taste. It holds all your favorite things in the right place, organized for your personal need, but it’s also about feeling free to make a mess. It’s a personal space where you can spend the whole day in your pyjamas watching your favorite movie, play video games or listen to your favorite records, in other words it allows people to do what they want and truly to be themselves.

A house is made of bricks and beams. A home is made of love and dreams.

With this website we will try to provide inspiration and ideas to transform your house into a warm, welcoming home.

Until then here are some ideas to help with that, the “can’t-live-without”, warm-fuzzy stuff.

Share your home with others you love (including pets). Have your friends over often for dinner or a movie. The more happiness and laughter enters your house, the more it is going to feel like a home.

As many say, a house is not a home until it’s been cooked in. The smells of good food cooking offer up delicious aromas that can make your whole house smell amazing. It can be a dinner for two or the preparation of a holiday meal for all your friends and family.

 Have a favorite spot, a comfy corner, a little reading nook that is filled with warm, personal touches, a place surrounded by the things you love. Photos of family and friends, a collections you’ve built, souvenirs you brought home from your travels. Every home needs at least one cozy space where you can just lounge and let loose.

Make memories. If you fill your home with people and happiness, you will be making memories along the way. Creating family traditions and memories will quickly turn it from a simple house into a home. You may not look back and remember this house for its windows or doors, but you will remember where you were standing when you found out you were pregnant with your first child, the surprise birthday party that your best friends have thrown for you.
