Decor That Makes A House A Home
We all have certain items in our home that we love, and that makes it feel like home. As I was cleaning the other day, I make a mental note of all the things that made me feel warm and fuzzy.
We all make purchases based on the emotions we have when we look at them. I thought I would share some of mine, with you. Come join me and check out some of the decor in my house that makes it feel like home!
We are going to paint again sometime in the near future. I always have a blast picking out colors. I know I will be using my Pinterest board called Paint Profiles for some help. I hope you get some great painting ideas from there as well, so be sure to check out that board!
Hallway Shade: I purchased this shade because it was so soft and welcoming. It’s one of the first things you see when walking into my foyer. It’s the only printed shade I have in my home and I adore it!
Lenox Bowl and Tray: This was my mom’s. She has long passed away, and I cherish some of the items I have of hers. I remember the Christmas we bought this for her. This set is well over 40 years old! She loved it and so do I.
Cedar Wood Floor Lamp: My hubby and I bought this lamp about 35 or so years ago. We both fell in love with it! I think it’s made from a type of cedar that is now banned from use, so it can no longer be used for furniture making. That makes this all the more special! If you see that little box on the bottom of the lamp, that my poor Neo’s ashes. That was his corner where his bed was and he loved to sleep when we were downstairs, so I thought it fitting it rest there in his after-life too.
Mom’s Chest of Drawers: This is another decor item I got from my Mom. Another piece well over 40 years old. I recently re-finished it. Check that post out here to see exactly how it’s done!
Handmade Ceramic Table: This table greets you with a warm smile when you walk into my home. It sits right in the foyer, and I always seem to get a compliment right off the bat when someone enters. You can see that post here as well. It took me endless hours of hard work but well worth it. It really adds something unique to my entryway!
Upstairs Foyer Table: This piece did exactly what I needed it to which was house a lamp and add warmth to my upstairs foyer. It fits perfectly, and that was hard to find. I found this at Raymour and Flanigan.
Room Divider: I originally purchased this divider for the living room and decided it just didn’t fit well, so I moved this into my hubby’s office. Now it adds a level of chic to his room. I love it there, but who knows? I just might have to move it again!
Now for some of the smaller items that make my house a home.
Wall Sconce: These came in a set of two. They work with batteries which is exactly want I needed to find. I didn’t want to have to call an electrician, and I wanted something simple to sit on sides of my television. I usually light them up at night where they offer the right amount of ambiance to the living room.
Master Bedroom Additional Lighting: Aside from my end-table lighting, I added this extra lamp to use as a nightlight. It gives off a nice amber glow to the room and makes me feel all warm and fuzzy for some reason.
Candle Set: I have these displayed in my living room. I love using accessories with gold accents. These add that extra pizzazz I was looking for with the brown and green color scheme of the room.
Clock and Stand: This was another piece me and the hubby fell in love with! We were shopping in a small town and couldn’t leave without it. I have it sitting at the top of the stairs where it can be appreciated from both levels.
Here is a closer look at the clock itself.
Thumb-Sucking Angel: I had to have her. I used to do the same thing when I was a kid and it made me smile.
Three Tier Candles: I light these at night in my living room for that warm glow we all love.
Foyer Accent Table Lamp: I’m into lighting big time. Here’s another accent lamp I use especially at night. It adds just the right amount of glow to the downstairs foyer.
Kitchen Island Decor: I’m always changing items on my island, but I think I’m keeping these around for a while.
Small Foyer Chandelier: I had to shop everywhere to find the perfect size for my entryway foyer lighting. Finally found the perfect size chandelier with the right amount of cozy charm.
Upstairs Ceiling Lighting: I love the way light reflects off this ceiling light and was one of the main reasons I purchased it. This provides just the right amount of light and I adore the shadows it creates.
Decorative Wall Sconces: The three below are some of my favorites. I tend to switch these around as well, but I think I will keep these for a while as well.
Downstairs Ceiling Lighting: I also fell in love with this fixture. It’s not as large but has lots of charm.
I have so many other pieces that mean a lot to me, but I will save those for another time. What speaks to you the most in your home? Please leave me a comment about it. I would love to know!
