For most of us home is our destination at the end of the day. If you don’t feel like it’s your getaway from the world—if you’d rather be somewhere else—then you need to do something about it today. So, how do you make your home a destination that you desire?
Think back to a special time and place–use whatever reminds you of this place, whether an island resort or a mountain cabin you visited as a child. It might even be that gorgeous home you saw in a magazine. If it knocked you out or evoked some feeling deep inside you, then you’re off to a good start.
The goal is to help you realize that home can be the destination you hurry back to. I want you to create a space that makes coming home feel like a luxurious place that invites you in and relieves the stress of the day.
In order to create that destination, you must set up your space so that you can live your life in an atmosphere that has the essence of a vacation. How? It’s really so easy. It’s about taking ideas from things you love and places you’ve visited, from moments and experiences that have affected you and your loved ones in a very special way.
Then transform your space to help you create a lifestyle that you have only dreamed of. Your dream needn’t start with the whole house. Begin with a room–or a corner of a room. It’s up to you. The idea is to just get started, to make the first changes that will affect your life. I promise you this: if you begin to change your home, you’ll be off to a running start to change your life!
