The new year is upon us. Has anyone else stopped to think, “How the heck is it 2013 already?” The new year always brings new resolutions (that we’ll forget about by February), a look to the future (how will our lives change this year?) and lots of guilt about what we can do better (I can’t help you with your guilt, blame your mother!). So I thought I’d share a few of my favorite home quotes (visuals courtesy of Pinterest) to inspire you to think about your home. We love the idea of home so much that when we started our business, we wanted to give it a name that was a synonym for HOME. We considered many, but Bungalow just sounded cozy (to hear the whole story click “Older Posts” at the bottom of the page and scroll back to the beginning for a post titled “The Story of Us”).
Home conjures up so many feelings. It’s where we live our lives with the ones we love and creating a ‘home’ is important. A home doesn’t have to be big or beautiful to be valuable, but I believe it should truly be YOU! What does your home say about you? Is it the message you want to convey? If I came to your house and read your book titles, looked at artwork or photos, peeked in closets, or sat down and stayed a while, what would it tell me about you?
This year I have decided to share a little inspiration with you more often. We always get so busy with the store and the hunt and the general inner workings of things that we forget the blog, where we can really share ourselves with all of our customers (since many of you are not local and unable to visit our store frequently) so we want to ‘feed’ you as well. So, over the next few weeks and months, I will pose a few questions weekly to get you to think about your home. Will you join me on this journey? Hopefully, together we can be inspired and pause long enough to remember the place we lay our head at night and to make it the type of home where others will want to be, peace can be felt and love can abound! Happy New Year, Jill
