A home is a place to feel welcome, relaxed and happy. Every day you want to wake up and feel happy that you are in that space and be proud of it.
Charlotte from South Devon, has shared with us what her home means to her, where she finds inspiration and most importantly, how her home makes her feel.
What does your home mean to you?
'Your home is your castle' is a phrase my parents would always say and it really is just that. My parents, sister and I are all super house proud. Many holidays were sacrificed to ensure our home was perfect with a large garden for my sister and I to play in and somewhere to feel safe. It was the heart of everyday life. My husband and I want to ensure this outlook is carried on for our family life and home
How do you make your home feel warm and welcoming?
Scents! It's all about the scents and mood lighting. Never ever have the big light on, always lamps and make sure that diffuser is on!
When decorating a room, what are the most important factors and why?
When decorating a room, I always gravitate to using only neutrals. They are a fantastic canvas to create a cosy and relaxing atmosphere. It also makes whatever room feel bright, open and spacious! These are the most important factors to me.
Do you have your own personal style? If so, what is it and where do you find inspiration?
I live by the quote of 'less is more' and so I emulate this throughout my whole home. Neutrals, only one or two pieces of side board art and barely any prints or wall hangings. I like simplicity.
Where and how do you unwind after a long day?
I usually unwind by cooking dinner in our new kitchen with a glass of something with my husband, baby girl and our pup! Later it's then a candle lit and sat in front of the fire.
Do you have a bedtime routine? Tell us about it
Bedtime routine is a bath shared with my baby girl, all the face creams, glass of water and then cosy in our My Cuddledown bedding (might pop the TV on too in bed)!
At the end of the day, you want your home sanctuary to be a space you enjoy spending time in with your family. By adding some special touches to really make it personal, it’ll be much easier to feel like your home is truly yours.
