One of my favorite elements of our home tours is the final slide where people share what they love about their home in their own words — a singular statement that encapsulates what makes their home so special to them. Keep in mind they “built” their home, arranging all the furniture, objects and even colors, to create a series of spaces where they, and their families, can relax, thrive and love. It just doesn’t get better than that.
We made it our mission in the past few years to showcase all types of homes, not just those with the latest must-haves in home décor. Our search for real homes, real families and signs of everyday life have brought more warmth to our own hearts and we are so thankful for all of those who have boldly shared their spaces (and families) with us. We’ve learned that color and pattern can transform a room and that small details make a house a home. We’ve also learned that you, our readers, enjoy and take as much inspiration from a home that looks lived-in as you do from a styled, well-lit and professionally photographed home. And we couldn’t agree more. Here’s to the love that goes into homes across the world! –Caitlin
