LIFE AT HOME

“Home is a personal window to nature”

Urban life can be intense.

The sounds, sights and smells follow us over the doorstep when we go back home. But how can we bring nature back home with us too? Our Home Pioneers blur the boundaries between house and home, as well as outside and inside, to find the tranquillity needed in their homes.

“Every morning, I open the window and lay on the bed for 10 minutes and just listen to the birds outside. It’s a ritual that is important to me because I feel like I am home. The sounds have become a part of the place I live.” (Hans-Günther, Germany)

Could the sounds and smells of nature become part of a routine to feel at home?

LIFE AT HOME

”Define and defend your space – but leave a place for ours too”

Do you feel like you don’t have a space to call your own at home? Is it hard to have a conversation with your partner about what’s ‘yours’ and ‘mine’? Home Pioneers believe we can all become bolder about the places we create, both together and alone.

“We have designed our house to dedicate areas to both parents and children. We want to be a family where everybody can enjoy their own space, but who can also function whilst working from home.” (Pernille, Denmark)

Could clearly defined spaces help create a happier home?

LIFE AT HOME

”A good life at home together starts with a good conversation”

Regular conversations about life at home make the world of difference to our Home Pioneers. A lot of topics need to be covered, from rules to routines. So, dedicating time to lay down the emotional foundations of your home can avoid future frustrations.

“When we moved into our home, we spent three days talking about how we wanted things to be, such as rules, routines and furniture. Since then, we’ve never had a fight about anything concerning our home.” (Nataliya, Russia)

Could a good conversation begin a good life at home together?

LIFE AT HOME

”Contribute to a better world through your home”

Allow your home to express who you are and what you love. When we can be ourselves, we inspire others to be more open-minded. Home Pioneers believe that creating a better life at home can change people’s attitudes and behaviours, and contribute to a better world.

”My home can inspire others to feel that it’s okay to be different - I want to change people’s attitudes to be more open." (Nataliya, Russia)

Could personal expression at home inspire a change in others?

LIFE AT HOME

”Tech could bring us all closer together”

“While most tech activities start out with being alone with electronics, they eventually turn into time spent together, teaching and sharing.” (Jennifer, US)

Could tech devices create more togetherness at home?

LIFE AT HOME

”Prioritise rather than minimise – that’s how you achieve an ordered life”

Too much stuff and not enough space? Finding it hard to get rid of things that feel sentimental? You’re not alone. Why not use some Home Pioneer Hints to create more balance for the stuff that matters.

Could prioritising lead to a more balanced life at home?
