Home. Dorothy was right—there’s no place like it. But what is it about those walls we come back to at the end of a long day that resonates so deeply with who we are? What is home?
Home can mean so many different things—a street address, a smell, your favorite place to curl up and read a book, a booth at a local coffee shop, or just the sight of your loved ones. It seems that we leave little pieces of who we are with each of these “homes”, and in return they are always ready to welcome us back with open arms—literally and figuratively.
So back to those walls at the end of the day—it’s the pieces of you and your family that those walls absorb that make it home. Whether it be a gallery wall filled with pictures of your little ones and your favorite verses, a perfectly plush rug that hugs your bare feet in just the right way and reminds you of summers spent running through grassy fields, or a dinner table that perfectly combines your farmhouse taste with his industrial style—it’s uniquely you.
When it comes to home, there is no right way to do it, no magical equation to perfect decor or design. In our opinion, home is supposed to be a mash up of who you were, who you are, and who you are becoming. Home is supposed to get messy every once in a while. Home is supposed to be a haven for your family to come together. Home is what you make it, not what someone tells you it should be. Home is one-of-a-kind.
