A Few Of My Favorite Home Things

“Tis the season” and home takes on a special resonance as we embrace the holidays. Home is a four letter word that hopefully conjures up a place where comfort, ease and safety are paramount – a shelter from the storms of life. Home does not have to be expensive or expansive or extraordinary, but a place that triggers calmness. Most often this feeling is sparked by our senses: a cushy couch, a memorable cooking smell, a warm, lumpy blanket, a colorful flower garden outside our window or a rope hammock, shaped by afternoon naps. Whatever moment evokes your sense of home, many of these impressions are shaped by the power of design, often unnoticed in little ways or announced in big splashes. As we prepare to welcome family and friends into our homes this season or traveling to unknown spots, be aware that our surroundings have a tenacious effect on our emotions. To round out the year, I have compiled a list of some favorite home things-some new, some old, some fun, some crazy…but how we decorate our homes always makes a lasting impression.
