I never really understood the importance of creating the mood you want for your own home, until I moved out of my family house. Everything was always well decorated: walls covered with family pictures, rooms embellished by pieces of art from my mom’s travels, and common areas (such as the living room), having as many pieces of african home decor as one can have! These are the things that made home feel like… home.
