🏠During my college years, I moved a total of 6 times to places in various cities with different roommates. I was either living in a rented apartment or a rented room in a house so it was temporary, which meant I could not put down permanent roots let alone decorate my space the way I wanted to. I felt like a vagabond without a home. It made my depression worse 💔
🏠Flash forward to the present. For the past 3 years, I have been living in a house, a beautiful home, that my boyfriend and I own with our two precious puppies. A HOME ❤️❤️. No awkward roommate relationships. I can be myself. I can do laundry when I want and how I want. I can go to the kitchen and cook how I like to. I don’t have to hide in my room. 💜
🎀It has been therapeutic and inspiring to decorate our house the way we want to.🎀
🌼Etsy is just one of the places where I love to buy home decor. I love Etsy because I can buy one-of-a-kind, handmade items from talented folks who treat you like family – it inspires me. I found an Etsy seller who sold me some of my favorite pieces of art. It’s truly the simple things in life. The seller prints Disney images and other iconic images onto vintage dictionary pages that are truly one-of-a kind. I framed them and hung them on my wall. These pieces are a perfect outward expression of myself.
🌼Despite moving so many times, I tried to make the best of each place that I lived and find ways to make it my own. The experience of moving that many times in such a short period of time has made me even more grateful for my home where I can put down roots.🌼
🏠What are some of the ways that you make a space into your own whether renting or owning – a house into your home? How does it inspire you?💕. ☀️Please share in the comments below – I will be sharing more on my home decor soon.✨
