I grew up with the “Better Homes and Garden” concept that is “you should love the space you live in.” “Make it your own.” “Make your home your sanctuary”. That is why these pics resonate with me so. I can imagine myself with this type of interior and it really “sparks” those creative juices.
I love the colors, textures and patterns used. I’m not great with this, but am improving. Looking at pictures like this is key to finding your design style.
