Curate Your Home Into A Space You Love

I truly believe that our homes have the power to impact our well-being on so many levels, yet a lot of us live in spaces that do not reflect who we are, our interests, experiences, or values. Depending on your season of life, curating your home is a process that will evolve, but requires thoughtful decisions each time you encounter an item you're considering for your home. If you're feeling out of touch with your living space, here are three ways you can curate your home into a space you love. 

Living Room

Say No To The Insta-House:  I remember the first time my husband and I went shopping for new furniture for our apartment. We chose one store, and walked around picking out sets for each room. Later, I realized our home looked just like the furniture store! Sure, it felt easy and put together, but it wasn't us at all and our space lacked personality. Unfortunately, we also learned the hard way that cheap, fast furniture usually doesn't stand the test of time costing us more money in the long run. I discovered it's worth investing in quality pieces that reflect our style and don't come from just one store but rather collected from a variety of independent shops, craft shows, antique stores, and our travels.

Mood Board

Create A Mood Board: If you're uncertain of your style, Pinterest is the best place to spend some time to help you identify design styles you're drawn to. For example, if we're talking about your living room, start searching for design ideas and save the pins you're gravitating towards. Once you have about 20-30 pins saved, you'll start to see a theme develop on your board helping you streamline your style. This is a valuable exercise saving time and money so you're not haphazardly picking out items for your home that don't align with the look you want.

 Home Love

Be Intentional: Stuff is funny; it has a way of creeping up on us slowly and taking over our spaces leaving us feeling very overwhelmed. You can combat this by deciding to be intentional with everything that enters your home. That might sound extreme, but consider how you may feel when confronted with every bad buying decision you've ever made. We live in a world where it has become far too easy to acquire things that serve little or no purpose other than to take up valuable real estate in our homes. If we do not learn to become conscious consumers, we're going to be faced with the physical, financial, and emotional consequences of those choices. Part of curating a home you love is to make intentional purchases that represent your values such as supporting companies that have transparent business practices, choosing local or secondhand shops, and sometimes buying nothing at all. 

I hope you enjoyed this post and found value in the information. Until next time!
