Quotes All About That Special Place We Call Home
#1 – “Your home is your home – all you need to concentrate on is creating one that you truly need rather than one you feel you should have” – Chrissy Halton
A quote that speaks to understanding the difference between looks and function.
Yes, it may be fantastic to have a glamorous home filled with all the latest gadgets and decor – but does it work for you?
In actual fact – ANY space can work for you if you set it up properly – and THAT’S the type of house that makes a home.
#2 – “Having somewhere to go is home, having someone to love is family, having both is a blessing” – Unknown
#3 – A room should feel collected, not decorated
A lot of rooms in a lot of homes look exactly the same.
It stands to reason, because we’re all looking at magazines, Pinterest, Instagram etc… and following trends etc…
Trouble is – although they may look good – they don’t necessarily reflect who you and anyone else living there – are.
The key to doing this well is to mix and match, hunt for unique pieces (from some unexpected places like car boot sales, flea markets, inherited items etc…), and gather each thing together over years rather than all at once.
That way – you’ll collate a stunning home just for you – and you’ll feel really comfortable in it every day.
#4 – “The ultimate luxury is being able to relax and enjoy your home” – Jeff Lincoln
#5 – “It’s not how big the house is, it’s how happy the home is” – Unknown
Does size matter? When it comes to houses, the answer may surprise you. Instead of opting for the biggest house in town, more and more people are choosing to downsize in order to focus on what really matters: happiness.
A smaller home is easier to maintain and clean, and it can also be more intimate and cosy.
Plus, it forces you to declutter and only keep the essentials, which can lead to a simpler and less stressful life.
Of course, a smaller home won’t be right for everyone. But if you’re looking for a happier home life, it’s definitely worth considering.
#6 – “You truly deserve to enjoy living in your house. It should be a place you can de-stress, a place that reflects your unique style, and a place that helps (not hinders) you in having the life you crave” – Chrissy Halton
#7 – “I can use the house to create a home. I can offer my family, my friends, myself, and even strangers the gift of love by making them feel special when they are in my home” – Sarah Mae
#8 – “Home is the nicest word there is” – Laura Ingalls Wilder
It’s the nicest word there is because it’s not just a place, it’s a feeling.
It’s the feeling of safety and comfort, of being surrounded by people who love and care for you. It’s the feeling of familiarity and warmth, of never having to worry about being judged or rejected.
Home is where you can be yourself, where you can relax and just be. It represents all of the best things in life.
#9 – “The power of finding beauty in the humblest things makes home happy and life lovely” – Louisa May Alcott
#10 – “Few things we can do in this world are so well worth doing as the making of a beautiful and happy home” – J.R.Miller
Creating a home takes dedication, hard work, and creativity.
Whether it’s through decorating with gorgeous artwork or experimenting with new interior design concepts, there are countless ways to make your house a truly special place to spend time.
And, by putting in the effort, you’re contributing to the well-being of everyone around you – both family members and friends alike.
Remember that even the little things matter when it comes to creating a happy home!
#11 – “I want my home to be the best place to be in the minds of my family. Peace and acceptance, excellence and a passion for living, comfort and fun” – Sally Clarkson

This famous quote (possibly the most famous quote related to homes) shows that home really is the best place there is…
#13 – “The ache for home lives in all of us, the safe place where we can go as we are and not be questioned” – Maya Angelou
#14 – “Home is a shelter from storms – all sorts of storms” – William Bennett
There’s something special about coming home after a long day.
It doesn’t matter if you’ve been dealing with a stressful work situation, or if you’ve just been out in the rain – coming home always feels like a respite.
It’s a place where we can relax and recharge, knowing that we’re safe and protected from whatever might be going on outside.
#15 – “Far more than we know, do the strength and beauty of our lives depend upon the home in which we dwell” – J.R. Miller
#16 – “In order to be a good gatekeeper, you have to think of your house as sacred space, not storage space” – Francine Jay
LOVE this quote.
I always say that your home should be somewhere you curate – just like in a museum. Nothing go on display there unless it has a specific reason to – and your home is no different.
Don’t let things pile up – instead, enjoy the things you WANT and NEED – and let them breathe.
#17 – “There is nothing like staying at home for real comfort” – Jane Austen
#18 – “Home is where we should feel secure and comfortable” – Catherine Pulsifer
#19 – There is nothing more calming than an organised home
It’s stressful to live in a home where things are in disarray. You can’t truly relax because there’s always something to do, something to find, and something to worry about.
When you know that things are where you need them to be, and nothing’s lost – you can switch off, be content, and enjoy the space.
And on the same track as this – is the next quote….
#20 – “When your home works for you – you’ll have more time for the things that make you smile” – Chrissy Halton
