The idea of an authentic home, its comforts assembled and brought into focus by orchestrating one’s uniqueness into living spaces has its own thoughtful narrative.

A Higher Purpose than Aesthetic Consumption

In our quickly changing living environment, now, more than ever, the reality of today’s wish for calm and pleasant spaces to live in corresponds with home becoming a powerful sanctuary in offering deeper emotional rewards. These days we are all seeking comfort from home. The Coronavirus pandemic has changed everything. In general, the home has evolved beyond being the place where we live to the place where we work, exercise, and much more. 

Our surroundings have a very real impact on our wellbeing----from how we feel, act and what we do and how we

do it. This knowledge of how our bodies react to the environment around us can help us elicit impactful results by leveraging the power of intentional design---foster purposeful actions to honor what's important to us----key to the essence of home and lifestyle with intentions.

Embrace Your Own Style 

A home should encourage us to be who we are. Well designed spaces can be impactful when aligned with our own ideals----a home that resonates with its homeowner's personality infuses a unique story and a little bit of magic while it makes moment of rest all the more restorative. To create a home requires an emotional connection in order to ensure a sense of belonging. Working with our favorite objects, colors, shapes, and materials set the stage to design our home room by room with impactful storytelling that reflects one's personality and spirit.

A sense of place beyond sheer visual appeal. Books and mementos always a must. Few items in the home hold as much sentimentality and knowledge as books.

What Makes a House a Home

This idea of an authentic home, its comforts assembled and brought into focus by orchestrating one’s uniqueness into living spaces has its own thoughtful narrative: the creativity and storytelling that come to life through an alignment with personal values and aesthetics. It's through this critical lens that we choose how we want our homes to speak to us vs. how we want them to look. Being intentional is key to the essence of home. With this in mind, we have compiled a list of the most important values that can help to forge an authentic home.
