We are often our own worst critics, and our homes are no exception. With a flood of inspiration at our fingertips daily, it can be easy to fall into discontent with our own surroundings...

Taking a step back to consider what you most love about your home and why is the best antidote. Not because you have the latest-greatest or really hit that one trend right on the head but because of how your space nourishes you, how it affects your moods or helps you to refocus. A nook for reading, a utilitarian kitchen ready to whip up your favorite dish, a bit of indulgence with beautiful products for your bath, or a wall color that just makes you happy; if you take time to really appreciate these things and to let it sink in you will find there is less room for discontent. You might even find you make more fulfilling choices in what you decide to surround yourself with.
