What makes your home a home?

A recent study released by IKEA revealed that homes don't always feel like home, and some people reported feeling more at home in their cars. Does your home feel like home? What makes it like that? And if you don't feel at home there, why not? Where do you feel most at home?

Heiki says: We have moved into a newly-built home a bit over a year ago and to be honest the house still doesn't feel like a proper home. Maybe it is due to our family's lack of creativity but the whole house still boasts that 'show-home' feel. We do undertake frequent trips to Ikea for the latest ideas and trends and it all looks wonderful how everything is put together in the store, however I seem to lack the ability to translate it to our house. We have half-heartedly attempted to add our personal touches to the downstairs lounge but this resulted in a lot of non-matching and contradicting styles. I just wish Ikea would have a dedicated home design team who could come out to your house, have a thorough chat to see what you want to achieve and then come back with a heap of ideas which can all be sourced from your local Ikea store. I would quite happily pay for this kind of service and I am sure a lot of people out there would do the same.
