5 Quotes About Home That Will Inspire You to Create a Home You Love

Updated on October 18, 2017

June is National Homeownership Month, a time to celebrate the benefits and joys of owning a home. This year, it has special significance for Mitch and me: It inspires us to ponder the impact homeownership has on our lives.

Six months ago, we made the leap from apartment dwellers to homeowners. We traded our little city apartment for a three-bedroom house in the country. After nine years of renting, we now own a home of our own – well, a mortgage anyway.

I love, love, LOVE our house – for what it is and what it can become. I live and work at home, and it’s one of my favorite places to be. But it didn’t feel that way at first.

How to Create a Feeling of Home

Our house is a new build. It was fun to drive to the home site each week to snap construction photos and watch the house take shape. But excitement turned to overwhelm when we finally moved in.

How would we ever fill the blank walls and empty spaces without breaking the bank? And how could we create a feeling of “home” right from the start?

The answer: with a little creativity … and my Wayfair wish list (see some of my favorites below) … AND my husband’s knack for finding good deals! But more important, with a clear understanding of what home means to us.
