Make Home A Place You Love To Reflect
When it comes to creating a space that has a homey feel, you want it to be a place that you can feel relaxed and reflect. When we have places in our home that make us feel good…make us reflect on the joy and gratitude we have in our lives, our hearts are more full and able to give that joy back. Make sure you have places in your home that allow you the freedom to be who you are and to reflect on who you want to keep growing into.
The extra time many of us have these days is a great opportunity for us to meditate or pray and really get in touch with our feelings and emotions. We can do this by ensuring our space is clean and uncluttered. Clutter can make us feel anxious and when we feel anxious, we’re not able to fully be present. Set up space that is painted in calm, soothing colors and has some of who you are–a family picture that sparks a special memory or a fun piece of art that makes you smile.
Having space where you can curl up and read, reflect or even snooze makes your home a place you enjoy being.
When you’re creating a space you love to call home, you also want it to be a place that you feel alive and inspired. A perfect way to do this is to bring lots of natural elements into the space. Sometimes it’ll be some gorgeous greenery that you care for year-round. Other times, it can be as simple as a seasonal bouquet you bring in for immediate gratification and inspiration. Consider having natural elements in flooring and furniture so that you can get in touch with nature and the gifts it brings, even when we are quarantining at home. A warm color on the wall with a beautiful bookshelf full of inviting words can’t help but make you feel you can conquer everything!
While we certainly are dealing with a new normal, we are also finding how much joy we can discover in the little things of life. When it comes to creating a space you call home, it’s important that it reflects who you are, brings you joy and leaves you feeling fulfilled as you spend extra time inside your home.

Owner, Fave Lifestyles
I was becoming an empty nester, a woman of a more interesting age and in transition. Sound familiar? I was at that place where we question our purpose, value, and worth and what in the world are we going to do with the rest of our lives.
I noticed women have a huge hunger to belong to a community of women where they can feel safe, share openly from their heart and have other women to do life with! This is why I created my Fave Lifestyles.
Fave is for the woman who wants to call Fave her community of women who support, uplift, and make her feel better about herself. I want to create a place where we help her answer life's questions and just do life together!
