We know, it’s cold outside and there’s only one thing you want to do: sleep. But the year is not over, and there is still much to do before we go on vacation and watch all the holiday movies in our best outfits as we eat cookies. Who is with me? Before we get into this, first things first: We need all the advice we can get on how to build a good home.
We are busy fixing up the house to find others great sleep. And while we are ready to call for comfort, we certainly do not want to compromise on styles. Want to know how to make your home better, too? Naturally, we looked at three of our favorites – Katie Hodges, Julie Van Daele of Well Received, and Erik Gacia of. Find a Home-to know, and there is one thing they all agreed on: Don’t just look at its design.
“The best thing is when you go into the air and you immediately want to take off your shoes, go into a nice house, and relax and be comfortable, “says Garcia.” It encourages you to stay there all day. “We did not agree much.

Hodges also rely on its design to develop an interesting object, but lighting is also important, especially the heat of the flame. Instead of a fiery place, it is said that swaying candlesticks are a beautiful way to enhance intimate and unique connections in space.

And don’t forget to mix your form, too. Daele says it’s important to combine knitwear, fleece, and velvet, but most importantly, “don’t forget the scent!” We are talking about incense, candles, and essential oils. Garcia admits: “Smelling is a wonderful way to achieve relief, relaxation, and pride.”
If you are shaking your head in agreement to enhance your design but am shaking your head at how you can make your home more comfortable and attractive, then read our top designer advice:
- Mix two different pillows in the same color on your sofa.
