The Washington Post is offering some valuable home decor advice.
A survey by the magazine shows that Americans’ favorite quotes about home decor are for the outdoors, but that a majority of Americans are also fascinated by the home as a place to live.
A majority of respondents to the survey said they want their homes to be a place of “true love, joy, friendship, and harmony,” and that they want the home to be “home for all of their dreams, loves, and adventures,” according to the poll, which was conducted for The Post.
The home is a place where “people from all walks of life come together, to share and share, to be themselves, and to create a unique community of people.”
A home is also a place for “true friendship,” according the poll.
A whopping 70 percent of respondents said that they wanted to be close to their friends, family and community, the poll found.
A third of respondents are looking forward to their next visit to their home.
Home decor is a “must have” for all Americans, according to The Post, as it is a time to “celebrate family, community, and love.”
A second survey, conducted by the New York Times, showed that Americans love the idea of the home and have no problem sharing it with others.
Fifty-six percent of Americans said they feel that it is “great to have a place with people who love each other and who are good neighbors.”
Nearly two-thirds of Americans believe that the home is “the place to make a lasting impression on others,” according a Pew Research Center poll conducted earlier this year.
The survey found that 80 percent of adults think that people will “find their friends through their home,” and more than two-quarters of adults also said that their homes are the place they “look to connect with family.”
Americans want to have “true friendships” in their homes, according the survey.
More than two thirds of respondents who responded said that being close to others makes them feel comfortable and secure.
“When you feel comfortable, it makes you feel safe, and when you feel secure, it lets you know that you can count on your friends,” said a survey respondent.
“It is what makes you happy and who you are, and it is what gives you purpose.”
Home decor isn’t the only area where Americans feel connected.
A survey conducted by The Atlantic found that Americans feel a connection to their neighborhoods and feel as though they are part of a community, even if that community is small.
More than two in three Americans believe the way their neighborhoods are designed, the way they live and the things they do make them feel like part of the community.
More people feel connected to their local businesses and services than any other segment of the population, the Atlantic reported.
More Americans said that a place that is “home to people from all backgrounds” makes them “feel more at home.”
The survey said that 65 percent of people feel as if they are more at “home” when they live in places with a diverse population, and more respondents said they were at home when they lived in a community where “no one speaks the same language.”
