Color, books and flowers

Have you ever thought about what makes an apartment or a house a home, and not just a place where you stay for a while? If you ask me, there are three really important things. First of all, I need books in my home, the more the better… I found all photos at Hemnet (which I visit A LOT), and this photo caught my eye immediately, since it reminds me a lot of someone. Who? Eehm… Me of course! I admit, I’m a true book geek!

I have books everywhere, and I mean everywhere. In the walk-in closet, on the floor in the bedroom, in the stairs (not very safe, I know) and on the kitchen table. I love it, but I guess I don’t have to say that my boyfriend doesn’t…

Next thing I need in order to feel like home, is flowers. I would love to have fresh flowers in every single room, but even if that’s not always reasonable, I definitely want a bouquet in the kitchen and in the living room, and I think it’s nice to place a bouquet in the entry hall as well. Great way to welcome all visitors, right? I love all kind of fresh flowers, but I think tulips are perfect to use during these first months of spring. Which ones are your favorites?

The third thing that is needed in order for me to feel like home, is colors! It can be colored cushions, curtains or a bowl filled with fruits in various colors. The important isn’t WHAT it is, but THAT you can find accent colors in the house/flat. I’m a big fan of white interior, but I want the rooms to be vibrant and welcoming, and I think some splashes of color makes the place a lot more interesting.

What would you say is the most important things in order to make a place feel like home?
