Visionary words for your home. What are yours?

post #1 of 37
Thread Starter 
We moved about six months ago into a home that needed a lot of work. I really enjoy the creative process of visualizing how I want my home to feel. I chose three primary mood words as inspiration.

I chose: peaceful, magical and romantic

That is what I need right now. It will change and evolve as I do.
What words would you evoke to describe your current dream living space?

I do a lot of imagining also. I think...peaceful, comfortable and inspiring. My vision always includes lots of natural elements as well, like stone, flowers, pictures of birds and trees.

Because we hs and spend a lot of time here, I chose inspiring for all of us.

cozy, aesthetically pleasing, whimsical...........our house is very small, full of a variety of colors and art, no curtains on the windows so we can see the woods we live in.

Nice thread!

Largeness, hugeness, and lots of room! :LOL

I know this is a serious thread, but that's what I see when I close my eyes and picture my "home".

JoAida, vastness is good if that is what you want to see. Is it simple vastness? complex? inviting? welcoming? cold? harsh? warm?
Give us a bit more... what do you want the vastness to invoke? freedom?

Jeca, I understand the mess issue. I have mess issues too. But what do you want to create?? or does it matter to you? If you don't picture it you can't get it.


I like lots of nature and art as well.

Comfy, enchanting, community, passionate, spiritual....

I picture they same feel/energy/love of a small Italian town. Rustic with an enchanting elegance to it. Everyone feels comfortable and at ease. Everyone is family.....meaning guests ALWAYS feel welcome. Spiritual in the way that you can always just feel the presence of something bigger than you are....gratitude fills the air!

OK...long winded....but that is what I see!!!

It doesn't seem to matter what I try to create in the end that's allI seem to end up with. (sigh) I'm bummed.

For our house it would be; serene, tranquil, comfy and lived in. I like things neat and clean but not PERFECT.
I cannot stand clutter either I am working on that though (since dd has come along).

Cozy is the first word that comes to mind. Welcoming and beauty.

I'm with AngelBee.. I want people to feel like my home is their home. It's a safe haven. You walk in, and you feel comfortable immediately.
