HOME AWAY FROM HOME

House & Home

Oh, the bittersweet feeling of having your (adult) children move away from home to their campus dorm or first apartment (at least for the school year). It’s a big step for many families, and moving into a new space can be tricky if you’re not ready for it. But once you’re there and everything is set up, it can be a décorista’s dream (not to mention having extra space for yourself, parents and students alike).

Pro tip: decorate your new living space to make it feel as homey as possible. Even if it’s shared and/or temporary, your first place is still your new home. Therefore, make it a place that is comfortable and cozy to come home to after a long day of school (read: the perfect studying sanctuary).

Visit Ideal Furnishings and Vancouver Furnishing to get started. You can find all kinds of furniture and décor to match your personal style in a modern, minimalist way. Whether it’s lamps, couches, desks, or dining tables . . . they have it all. I’ve got to say, these House & Home stores really know what they’re doing; whenever I pass by, I’m inspired to give my home a makeover! If it were up to me, my home décor would change as often as I switch the batteries on my TV remote (kidding but not kidding). Bring out your inner interior designer and let your true self shine by finding the right furniture and décor for your new home away from home.
