For me my house is made a home by having my books around me, photos of loved ones, fresh flowers, art on my walls that brings me joy, mementoes of my travels, lighting candles on the dining table, gifts from family and friends, keepsakes from my parents (who sadly passed away a long time ago).
Fresh flowers in my living area
Books in my bookshelf and a small, favourite piece of art (and a cup of my favourite green jasmine tea).
And these are the candles on my dining table - we don't keep them for special occasions, we like to light them most evenings.
What makes your house a home?
