The last thing you want is for your home to feel cold and impersonal, lifeless. When you walk into your home it shouldn't feel like you are walking into a motel room.
So how do you create a home with soul that reflects you? Start by stepping back and looking at yourself and your lifestyle. How would your closest friends and family describe you? Your home should reflect the needs of your life and how you choose to unwind and just be you. Your personality should shine through in your home decor.
Surround yourself with the things tat fill you with good feelings. Accessorize your home with the same intent that you do your wardrobe. Buy artwork that speaks to you on a personal level, not because you think it is a good investment. Are you a casual person that likes to dress up occasionally? Then let some of your home decor accessories reflect that dressed up side of you.
I like to go camping and hiking and I have a strong interest in plants and rocks. In my home you will find the odd rock in my decor, especially wishing stones. I also have dried seed pods in places. These are things that reflect a big part of who I am. Of course you will also find beautiful photographs on the walls. The soul of my home reflects my own inner soul.
When you or your friends walk into your home they should feel like they just got a hug. That warm, welcoming feeling is a home with soul. What does a home with soul look like to you?
