Curated Home Vs Decorated Home

There's always that one compliment that you receive for the effort that you put into shaping and creating your home, that makes you want to pat yourself on the back and say, I did it right !!! For me the golden words were," You have a beautifully CURATED home !!! "
Personally, living in a consciously curated home means a lot to me than existing in a beautifully decorated home. A beautifully decorated home is something that you can find as you turn the pages of a home furnishings catalog. But a "curated home" to me is a thoughtfully put together collection that has a soul and it speaks volumes of your personality, design aesthetics, cultural influences and serves as a visual journal of your memories, experiences and travel tales.
A home serves as the powerhouse for everyday inspiration,  so arise the curator in you and let the decorator take a back seat as you prudently surround yourself with the objects of your affection. Take the time to find pieces for your home that trigger an emotion or a reaction from you and the rest will follow suit. 
What would you rather have, a beautifully decorated home or a thoughtfully curated home ??? I'd love to hear from you.

Happy curating folks !!!

  4. how lovely!! and yes a consciously put together "home" where each corner and each art piece has a story is any day better than a designer home.
    and the best part is that it keeps evolving as the years go by...

  6. Really artistic..... Living room design is out of this world. This interior speaks a lot about itself. I completely admire the designer for such a different interiors.
