What Makes Home, Home?

Anyone who has a dog knows that it could not feel more like home than when you walk up to the door and hear their toenails clacking on the floor and maybe a happy tail hitting the wall as they try to contain their excitement. In our house there are cries and howls and hugs. Sometimes I think I don’t know why I bother coming home if they are not there.

In our house there are cries and howls and hugs. Sometimes I think I don’t know why I bother coming home if they are not there.

Of course, then I remember there are other reasons to be home. I feel a sense of pride in the home that my husband and I have created and I feel incredibly fortunate to have a place to call home where I feel safe. When I walk in the door to my house, I feel a sense of relief that I can somewhat leave behind whatever I had going on outside these doors. I can take my socks off (or let’s be real, pants) and let my hair down (or really put it up in a frizzy bun on top of my head). I can put on some comfy clothes, not care what I look like and curl up on a couch topped with blankets.

My mom always told me a house is not the same as a home and a home should be warm and cozy that looks a bit lived-in. This has inspired my decor and style to be cozy, comfortable and functional. I love being home and feel that everyone deserves a place that they can call home. If I can’t convince you to adopt a four-legged friend, or if you already have one, I hope to at least share some tricks and tips to make your house the home of your dreams for every season.
