Home Sweet Home

On Apartment Therapy, we often post about ways to make your house a home. Whether it's tips on how to make a cozy home, creating your home's flow or finding the natural light in your space. When we walk around our home, we find that certain items make us smile and make our house feel like a home. Check out our newest inspiration after the jump...

New lighting in our bathroom! We had a dated light fixture in our bathroom and for two years we had wanted to do something about it. Since we live in a rental unit, we had to consider our options but the fixture had to go...it was less then happy (to say the least). We had been coveting Tord Boontje's Midsummer light and thought this would make a great accent in the room. A simple swap of lights and now we smile when we walk into this room. This small change really affects our mood and inspires us!

What makes you smile in your home? Is it a picture frame you purchased on a trip? A large piece of furniture that you saved your pennies for that you will own forever? An old family heirloom that has a new home on your bookshelf? Local flowers you treated yourself to last weekend?

Let us know your inspiration! Send us a note and load up your pictures to the Apartment Therapy LA Flickr pool.
