The Creed of 'HOME'

I believe, with unwavering intent, that the way you create, use, and live within your home can have a fundamental effect on your psyche, your emotions, and your life.

It's important you have a strong 'home-base'....

Somewhere stable and nurturing.

Your own soul supporting 'corner of the world'. 

A 'soft place to fall'.

A place where you can be completely at ease, and authentically yourself.

In my raw and vulnerable moments, my home is always there for me. It's a comfort, a place of joy, and a space for deep reflection.

I have a 'creed' in relation to my feelings about 'home'.

Here it is...

I believe HOME is so much more than just a shelter... it is an extension of the soul, a representation of the people within, a repository of personality.

I believe HOME is a safe, nurturing, supportive and happy place, where all who abide there feel 'loved' and 'free'.

I believe HOME is a soft place to fall, a welcoming place for family and friends, an incubator of dreams.

I believe HOME is not held to anyone's standards but our own. There are no expectations, no 'we must keep up with the latest fads', no feeling bad if we don't have lots of money to spend on it.

I believe HOME is a melting pot of ideas, emotions, laughter, pets (cats anyone?), people, books, colour, music, conversation, scents, tastes, texture, pattern.... what-ever it is that makes your house a HOME for you.

I believe decorating HOME is more about the 'gut' and the 'heart', than what's 'in' and what's 'out'.

I believe HOME is the champion of our unguarded moments.

What do you think of your 'home'?
