Moving into a new place or living away from the motherland? Here’s a way to adapt: by making your house feel just like home. Now, what makes a home then? It could be that warmth you get when you’re cozied up on the couch spending time with the people you love, or that feeling of freedom you get when you make a huge mess in the kitchen just for that bowl of cereal. It’s about making a personal connection with that space that you’re in – a proper place for yourself to recharge so that you can put your best foot forward in the outside world.

So without further ado, here’s a few ways to establish that emotional connection with your abode:

1.  Adding artwork to your home

There’s nothing like a little artwork to show off your taste in abstract art. Having framed art adds to the personality of the home and nonetheless, the personality of its owner and hey, it looks good too. No idea where to start? Check out Commune’s geometric abstract art, perfect for that scandi-inspired home.

2.  Lighting candles

Having a cozy night in? Light some candles and watch the atmosphere of your home do a 180 – from a cold, detached unit from the rest of the world to a warm and welcoming place that feels just like home on Christmas from when you were 9. Lighting a candle or two instantly brings a sense of calm, allowing you to be in your most natural state. So why not give it a try?

3.   Having friends over last minute

Physical items aside, having friends over last minute is such a way to make your house feel like home - showing your friends and family the very space that you live in as you open up that bottle of red that was sitting in your wine cabinet for forever, reminding your friends “Mi casa es su casa” – you get the idea.

4.  Hosting a dinner party

Let’s keep it up with the theme of spending time with your friends and family. Making memories in your home is definitely the best way to make you feel like you belong here, so do it over that dish you’ve always loved to cook for everyone and be instantly reminded that nothing has changed even after you’ve moved.
