Another name for this post is "Freestyle It!"
Basically, don't expect your house to look perfect. Let it do its thing. Let it be messy or crazy. Let the pillows be tossed. Let the poufs be ottomans or seats or coffee tables. Let the lightbulbs be bare.
Let the walls be empty. Don't try to fix it. Let the carpet be stained and the wood floors scratched. Celebrate the imperfections! They make people feel comfortable, and they tell the stories your space holds.
Action point: Whether it's an apartment, dorm, duplex, house, or just your own little room, don't worry too much about the little things. They will come in time.
And here's to many more memories in our imperfect spaces!
