What’s the difference between a house and a home? Easy. A house is just that – a structure. A home is a place you feel emotionally connected to, a place where cherished memories are made and kept.

It’s easy to be swept away by the pristinely-styled interiors on social media, but more important than how your house looks (or how big it is) is how your home feels. You should be relaxed, inspired and happy when you walk through your front door – whether a castle or a cosy studio.

The good news is that it doesn’t take much to achieve this. Here are our 3 simple tips.

We’re all tempted by the latest trends in home decor accents, but your place will feel more like your own when you fill it with things you genuinely have a connection with. Curating decor to include cherished and sentimental objects injects a home with life, especially when you don’t keep them all stashed away in boxes! These mementos all tell a story and have personal relevance – they deserve to be appreciated every day. Find a way to showcase your treasures. Hang them proudly on the walls, put them out on a coffee table or display them on your favorite bookshelf. Make sure that your vinyl collection, family photos or dearest sport trophies finally have a setting that lets them shine.
