The best advice in life is simple, short, sweet and easy to remember. (And if you're lucky, also welcome and solicited!). We had some beautiful homes featured as tours this week, and besides bursting with style, we noticed something else the homes all had in common: Owners who had some simple and short advice that would be helpful for anyone looking to create their own beautiful home to remember.

"Don't be afraid to implement your ideas and take some risks."

Stephen LaRue & Scott Peebles

"Paint it white."

— Isabelle and Nick Robertson

"Coffee table books are the best conversation starters."

— Chelsey Burnside and Cainan Querido

"Buy what you love!"

— Kelly and Ed Smithson

"Trust in the journey. Have faith in yourself, intuition is a powerful tool."

— Vanessa and Charlie

"Be patient. Your home doesn't need to be completely filled as soon as you move in. Don't buy something just because it's the first thing you see and it can fill an empty space. Wait for the right piece."

— Dani and Will
