Why your house is worth it.

"A chic home isn't one that's filled with uncomfortable furniture and art that you don't understand. It's a home filled with things that you love and that make you happy. Coming home should be an antidote to the troubles and traumas of everyday life. It should be like hearing your favorite song on the car radio, a first kiss, running into your ex-boyfriend and he's fat, being the 100th caller. It shouldn't feel like Sunday night, doing your taxes, eating fiber, or getting your teeth cleaned. I'm here to tell you that good home decorating can be the equivalent of years of therapy."
-Jonathan Adler

No matter what you're living in, be it a small apartment, your first house, your parent's basement or your dream house, it is worth it to personalize it and decorate according to your preferences. You don't have to until you have that "one-day house" to buy (or make!) things that can make you happy now. You can always take them with you when you move. No one wants to come home to a place that is cold, or that doesn't reflect them, or that is void of functional furniture. 
I don't know about you, but making things "prettier" or "better" is just in my nature. I love style, but not necessarily trends. And the home is a great way to explore that creativity!
