What an inspiring thread! I find myself overwhelmed by the clutter and and general boring feeling to my house sometimes. You ladies have inspired me to do some visioning about this. I'll try to remember to let you know what I come up with!

Sophisticated, calm, orderly, warm, inviting.

I have a little boy, so we'll see how all that works out :LOL.

What an interesting thread - this has got me thinking...

Sanctuary is the key word that I think DH and I agree on
If it were only up to me, I'd choose comfort elegance simplicity too - I like the more modern, quasi-Asian esthetic but we have so much clutter that ain't happening anytime soon.

We are up to our ears in renovation projects as we bought a fixer upper. But to figure out a vision as those projects are being planned is great timing. If we could just finish the projects, unpack the rest of our stuff, we could create an ambience here. I have a lot of beautiful textiles and handicrafts collected while travelling that I would love to display somewhere.

Maybe I'll make a collage to represent it to guide us in decorating, etc. Or better yet one for each room.

I agree about wanting people to feel comfortable when they come to your home. But with my MIL threatening to sell her house and and stay with each of her 4 kids for 3 months at a time when she retires, I'm rethinking that one... We are now thinking comfy for our family, and the heck with everyone else.

I'm with you om the lived-in. My mom's house always feels like no one lives there and I don't like that.

Homey, loved, junk-free, used, clean, natural

Homey: lived-in, everything is used, not just for show

Loved: everthing was "picked" i.e. I didn't choose the model

Junk-Free: will never happen, but at least the living areas and bedrooms

Used: I guess I already covered that

Natural: Wood furniture, colors, etc

Good thread!

What a great thread.

I'd say ~ inviting, comfortable, and peaceful

Inviting- It's lived in, but clean enough to always have someone over. Also, our home isn't stocked with expensive things that people are afraid to move around.

Comfortable- We have big, fluffy couches, chairs, and beds. Who doesn't love that for comfort?

Peaceful- I try to have soft lighting with lamps or candles and quiet music so that we can have a quiet household. I'm not saying it works all the time, but it helps.
