How to Put a Personal Stamp on Your Home

How to Put a Personal Stamp on Your Home

Transform a house into your home with these decorating tips to make the space personal.

Decorating is as much about style as substance. You can fill a home with the most fashionable colors and the latest furniture, but without a personal stamp of style it will lack a sense of warmth. (This explains why model suites or homes often feel empty of more than just occupants.) Homes are most homey when they reflect the people who live there. So, if you think it might be time to add a little style and personality to your surroundings, look no further than your own.

Here are a few ways you can make your home décor more uniquely you:


Use your heirlooms. Your mother's china, your great-aunt's silver tea service, your grandmother's linens — anything from the past (or more specifically your past) offers a great way to add a rich sense of hominess. Bring them out, display them — better yet,use them.



Almost anything can be turned into a DIY lamp base — a childhood trophy, a figurine, a favorite vase, even a bowling ball. Talk to the folks at your nearest home-improvement center. They have the know-how and the lamp kits to help you make it happen.



Monogrammed towels, robes or table linens offer a great way to add your signature style.
