Because I'm an interior addict I spend a lot of time looking at pictures of pretty apartments. And I'll be honest with you, a lot of them look very much the same. Whether it's the symptom of stylists using the same items for each apartment or if we're all simply liking the same things...hard to tell. But occasionally there's something that jumps out at me. Here's one of those apartments styled and sold by Alvhem. The styling and photography is definitely interesting but I think it's the (heated!) marble floors that run through the entire apartment and the incredible ceiling height and architectural detail that makes this place special in my mind.
And despite it's beauty and obvious appeal there's a question lingering here. Would I want to live here? I'm not sure. Right now I definitely would not, because I have small children and we very much need and enjoy our backyard, but even later in life, do I think this feels like a home for me? I think it's gorgeous and I would love the chance to stay a weekend but every day? It's a little bit like a beautiful formal dress. You would love the chance to wear one for an evening but you would hate it if that was the only piece of clothing you owned.
What is it that makes some places feel like home? We want our home to make us comfortable and relaxed, but what determines if we feel that? If you have any clues I'd love to hear in the comments below! But first, enjoy some more pictures from this beautiful place :-)
