And when I look at this house, I definitely think, “I could live there.” Its warm and familiar atmosphere is inviting, and makes us really feel that we are “at home.”

Sometimes, in the world of architecture and home decor, it’s nice to keep things minimal and simple. Even if that’s your primary concept for a home, however, you can still make sure every room has at least one piece that pops in order to give your space some personality.
