Whether you are a family living in a two story house, or a student living in a rented room or a couple living in an apartment, there is always a place you can call home everyday. I think what makes a home more than just a house or a room or an apartment is not only in the people you are living with but also the things inside that make you feel content and comfortable. Moreover if the things inside are decorated with your favorite style, complemented with your personal touch and organized within regular basis, I believe you can always celebrate a little something about life in the comfort of your home.
These books, “Homemakers” by Brit Morin and “Happy Handmade Home” by Elsie and Emma from A Beautiful Mess, are two books that I have recently read and fell in love with. At a glance, I thought these books will talk only about home decor, but man was I wrong. Of course they did discuss about home decorating. But they also include numerous tips and interesting ideas to help readers liven up their home with creative DIYs and activities.
