pillow cases vintage Why I LOVE my Rented Home pillow covers farmhouse

But you know what that attitude gave me in return? An ugly, undecorated home. I didn’t hang pictures on the walls, I wouldn’t invest in any nice furniture (even when we did have the extra money for it), because it never felt like my home. It was a little house full of IKEA furniture (God Bless IKEA, but eventually you just have to move on!), with no personality. When I think back on that house it makes me sad because I know that I could have cherished those moments a little morepillow cases vintage, gotten a little more settled in and comfortable, and our experience there would have felt a lot more like home. Fast forward a few years, we moved again (our family just kept growing!). But, of course, we still weren’t ready to buy our dream house. We’re renting again. We’ve been here a few years now and I did things differently this time. It is FAR from perfect. I don’t have a white farmhouse kitchen, and my house is not as beautiful as my Instagram feed, but it’s home. I decided that I was going to stop letting imperfection hold me back from loving my home. So we really moved in this time. We saved up and invested in some better furniture. Pieces that would last us for a lot of years, instead of things that would just get us through. ?We got a nice couch and a bed that will move along with us wherever we go. I couldn’t make a complete departure from IKEA though. You can’t beat their cheap curtains!This house isn’t my dream home. I would love it to look like the gorgeous homes I get to post about every day, but it’s just not where we are yet. This kitchen – who decided these things would look good together?! That backsplash is gross! But I didn’t let those things hold me back. My house is decorated now. It feels like me and my family really live there. There are pictures on walls and you can see my style in little details all over the house. It’s ours. My favorite compliment to receive from people is that my house feels homey. That’s everything I want. I want a place for my friends and family and kids to feel at home. It is so important to me to create a space where people feel that way. ?In this Home Design world, it’s so easy to get caught up in the perfection of it all. We all want to have the house of our dreams. Some of us might be there, and a lot of us aren’t quite there! But here’s the point: Home is a state of mind. It’s possible to create home wherever you are. Whether you’re renting or living in your ideal home, it’s absolutely possible to love your home. Find out what makes you feel at home. Spend a little extra time throwing up some decorations if you haven’t yet. Put down some roots. Just don’t let “it’s temporary” rob you from enjoying your home right now.

Here's a little tour of my perfectly imperfect rental home. A few years ago, this would have terrified me. But now I'm so happy to share the place that I get to call home, even if it doesn't look exactly like the home of my dreams.?

My front porch area gets a little more fancy as the seasons progress, but right now I'm loving the simplicity. A fun chalkboard Monogram and square wreath is all we need!?

Where all the magic happens. This is my favorite room. This couch was one of the first things we invested in?for our home. I'm always running around like a tyrant making sure my kids don't get their sticky fingers all over it, but it's worth it. I LOVE my living room.?

The object of so much frustration. What on earth am I supposed to do with this gigantic built-in? Even so, I've worked with it. We?added some fun accents here and there, and I love that fireplace in the winter!?

My escape! This is our Master Bedroom. This bed is the second major purchase we made and I think it?might be my favorite item in our home! Those wood?signs above our bed are the lyrics to a song we used in our wedding ceremony. My friend Tara from Between You &; Me Designs did it for me and I love the personal touch!?

That kitchen. Sometimes I just have to pretend that the cabinets and backsplash?don't even exist. So wrong. But, this is where all the food-related things happen so I would say it's arguably the most important room in the house!?

Our Boy/Girl room! I had the hardest time styling a room that would make my 7 year old daughter and 4?year old son happy! I personalized their beds with these pillows from my shop!?

Last but not least... our baby girl room! She's quickly outgrowing her crib but I'm holding on to this neutral and light pink baby room as long as I can. I accented with a cotton wreath and that fun banner and a few other fun things, but kept it?simple for #3!?

SO that's my home friends! I'd love to hear how you make your home a place you love even if it's not your "dream" home yet! Comment below!

NEW PDF Pattern with color guides! "My Love is True"

When we first moved in, we were pleased to see how perfectly our giant sectional “fit” in the ?family room. ?But slowly over time we started to think maybe there was something else that would fit better. ?The truth is I think we were just getting tired of the sectional. ?It was almost the same boring beige color as the carpet…leaving the entire room lifeless, especially when the walls were still painted tan.

The Shinola Runwell Moon Phase retails for about $850. Nordstrom / Samantha Lee Watches are a classic holiday gift, only slightly less common than sweaters and gift cards. But the truth of that matter is that many people aren't well-versed enough to pick out the very best watch for their money.
