Whenever I visit my best friend back home, she is constantly home improving her house. I see her roughly every six months and each visit more and more projects have been completed and there is always at least one project in process. Even though we are in different stages of ours lives – her with owning a house and me still renting, we’re not that much different! Since I moved to San Francisco, I’ve been noticing that I’ve loved spending time at home more than anywhere else I’ve lived. Decorating was the first part of the process after moving in. These days, I’m spending more time on maintaining – “swiffering,” looking at different plants, purchasing candles, and discovering new ways to bring more of my own personality into my home with decor.
My friends make fun of me because I’m always telling them how much I LOVE my home. It’s my sanctuary. It gives me a place to escape when I want to get away from work. It sparks my creativity when I want to focus on my blog or side project. It brings me peace when I need a quiet moment. I don’t think there will ever be a time when I’m not continuously working on my home and making it better, but I don’t mind that it’s my personal ongoing project.
What are your favorite things about your home and how do you make it your own?
