There’s no place like home and everyone knows it. This is such an iconic quote that it has become an axiom. It’s also one of the many home quotes that can serve as a source of inspiration for some amazing interior design projects both big and small.
One of these quotes (or several) can inspire you to try something different with your home interior or can become an actual physical part of your decor, either way, this is a great starting point. Let’s have a look at 20 home quotes that you can choose from.
It takes time and effort to turn a space into a home and it’s not all about the furniture, the decorations and everything else inside but also about the feeling that you get every time you open the front door and step inside.
Home is where you feel most comfortable at, or so it should be. Sure, there’s constant maintenance that needs to be done but ultimately you get to take a step back and enjoy all the hard work that you’ve put into that place and that’s such a wonderful feeling.
The most important ingredient for turning a house into a home is time, time to find new uses for old things, to reorganize the interior, redesign and adjust the little details and put more of your style into everything that surrounds you.
Nature is the biggest source of inspiration for a lot of designs. Taking elements from nature and bringing them into a space makes spaces look and feel familiar. This is also a way for us to reconnect with nature and to bring a little piece of it, however symbolic, into our lives.
We may change our place of residence quite a few times but there’s one place that forever remains ‘home’. It’s usually our place of birth, the house where we grew up and enjoyed wonderful moments with our family. Even when everyone has moved out, that’s still a place we can call home.
Every once in a while it’s important to enjoy the fun side of things. Being able to respond positively to a joke, even one that has some harsh truth into it, helps one grow as a person and helps them maintain a positive perspective in life.
This is an interesting perspective, one that emphasizes the fact that we’re always evolving, always changing and seeking new adventures and new ways of life. For some home is where they grew up while for others home is a concept yet to be materialized.
No matter how chaotic our day can be, once we get home everything goes away. It’s important to have a place where you can feel truly comfortable and safe, a sanctuary where you can relax, unwind and forget about all the worries so you can wake up next morning with fresh energy.
A lot of what makes a home feel so comfortable and secure for each of us is the fact that we get to share it with our loved ones and that we feel attached to it on an emotional level. That can be materialized in different ways for each person.
A straight route is not necessarily quicker than a detour. It’s also not necessarily more rewarding as each person gets to appreciate different things in life. Use these elements to customize and personalize your home and to turn it into a materialization of your unique style.
A good strategy when transforming a space into your new home is to surround yourself with things that give you joy and make you happy. That way you can forget about your past and everything else when you’re here and feel comfortable even at the darkest times.
The concept of home doesn’t have to refer to a single particular space. One can have more than one home, each with its own particularities. There will most likely be one that stands out, one place where everything just feels better. It often has to do with the person or persons that you get to share that place with.
Although this is a beautiful and true quote, that’s not to say we shouldn’t try to make our homes as lovely as possible. The aesthetics of the space also play an important role in making it feel like home. A person is not simply spending time in their home, they’re constantly transforming it.
You don’t realize where home is until you want a place where you a hide from the world, a place where you can feel sheltered and safe. Try to make your house that place by filling it with items that both look and feel nice. Turn it into a sanctuary for you and everyone else living there.
We all start from somewhere, we have a place we call home which doesn’t move or disappear. It always has a special place in our hearts and we sometimes try to make our current homes feel similar to that by borrowing the style, certain design and decor elements or a few symbolic details from it.
The fact is each and every one of us imprints their own unique style onto the space that they call home. We may realize it but every decision we make changes the way we and the other perceive that space. Sometimes we focus on making it as comfortable and as nice for ourselves and other times we want it to feel welcoming to others and that tells something about us in each case.
The challenge of turning this quote into reality is sometimes being responsible for the wellbeing of others. Of course, a home should be equally inviting, comfortable and safe to everyone living in it so take that into consideration when planning out the layout, the design, and everything else.
Creating something that looks interesting and catches the eye is not that difficult. Creating something that induces a feeling is always a challenge. Turning emotions into interior design elements is something that not everyone is able to do by themselves. Luckily, asking for help and collaborating with others is in our nature.
Some specific items like books just have something that always helps to makes a space look lives in and like a home. Sprinkling a few books around on shelves or casually sitting on a table really helps to set a cozy mood. You can take that to the next level if you’re really into reading and come up with all sorts of interpretations.
We’re ending with an abstract quote which, like many paintings and art pieces, can be interpreted in an infinite number of ways. It’s up to each and every one of us to discover what home really means, what it feels like and what it looks like. Then we can turn that vision into reality.
