When I look around my home, it is the tokens of love from family and friends that warm my heart and really make a space feel like home. I never forget who gifted me a beautiful candle, vase, dish, or a yummy throw blanket. The little indulgences that I may not buy for myself, but somehow, have become an integral part of my environment, have meaning beyond their beauty or utility.
If you’re like me, GIVING the perfect gift feels even better than receiving one, and no doubt you spend time considering who you are gifting, what their tastes are, and hope that they will love the token as much as you do. While this can be a daunting feeling, especially if you’re buying a gift for someone who’s home you’ve never visited, we’ve got a long list of safe bets that will almost always hit the spot!
Do you love a glam sparkly environment with plush, shaggy fabrics and rugs, sparkly crystal lighting, and smooth, mirrored surfaces? Or do you prefer an open space with raw concrete floors, sparse furniture and a monochromatic palette? Perhaps you feel most at home in a rustic, country-styled environment, or maybe a breezy, easy beach vibe is more your thing? The key to creating a home you will never want to leave, is to KNOW what home decor style speaks to your soul and fits your lifestyle.
