Some days you wake up and just wish you were living in a house that feels a little more like you. You look around and you feel that your home is lacking personality. In fact, it feels as if it’s lacking your personality.
It’s not that you don’t know what you like. The truth is that you like so many things, so many interior styles, so many interesting ideas and many times, all the latest trends. You keep buying new things for your house and you love them when you first see them, but soon after you loose interest. Often, you feel like it looked much better in the store than within your space. Why does this keep happening, you might ask. The answer is quite simple: your home is lacking balance, cohesion, flow.
It’s not hard for us to see beautiful homes with many great ideas but with an unfinished feel to them. Unfortunately, putting a home “together” is not as easy as it seems. You have to envision the space and if you allow me to share some advice, you need to bring home things that you love, not because they’re trendy, but because they “speak” to you.
Bringing personality and flow to the interiors was done in a easy and very casual way in this beach house located in Beaufort, South Carolina. Designed by Reu Architects, this home has a way of inviting you over and making you feel comfortable. Nothing is outrageous, everything is simple and pretty, including the water views.
Let’s start this week by seeing this comfortable and comforting beach house design. I am sure you will feel a little more relaxed and inspired to bring your beautiful personality into your home.

You guys have no idea how happy I am to be here with you today! It’s always great to start a brand new week, isn’t it? Oh, let’s forget about all the errands this week awaits, let’s focus on the good stuff! Let’s be grateful for our health (even if you’re not feeling 100%, focus on what’s working!), let’s also focus on the good things that are happening right now in our lives and let’s move on from the things that are not that great. Changes only happen when we get up, move things around and keep going ahead!
Think positive, keep positive and positive things will start happening in your life.
Wishing you all a very Blessed week, full of laughter and love!
We’ll talk again tomorrow!
