If there is one place we can all find sanctuary, it’s home. Back when our calendars were packed with in-person meetings, commuting to and from the office, and traveling for business, our home almost took a backseat and for many of us, myself included, we took it for granted. It’s safe to say that home has taken on an entirely new meaning now and as much as it has been challenging (and frustrating). It’s also been the perfect time to redecorate. I mean, if you stare long enough at the four walls around you, you’re going to get the itch. So if you have a home-obsessed friend in your life, then you’ll want to bookmark these gifts for interior design lovers.
I recently redesigned my living/dining area and bedroom. It was so nice to have a new challenge and something to focus on other than the endless scroll of my phone. Besides, I’m a homebody at heart and with the onset of the holiday season, I felt like it needed a cozy refresh. If you know a fellow homebody who’s also feeling the redesign itch then read on for a curated list of my favorite gifts for interior design lovers to turn their home into a stylish sanctuary. I dare you not to add something to the cart for yourself, too!
