Love where you live.

We don’t know about you, but when winter weather hits, all we want to do is hibernate and cozy up indoors. And, when we’re spending more time at home during these months, we feel inspired to redecorate, refresh, and turn our homes into our very own havens. It’s important for us to have a place to come home to at the end of the day that makes us happy—a space that’s filled with the things we love. That way, when we walk in the door and see candles, framed photos of our friends and family, and special vignettes, we feel immediately comfortable and peaceful. In our opinion, all of these elements contribute to your overall mood… Because when you love where you live, it sets the tone for a happy life.

So today, with the help of our friends at realtor.com®, a leader in online real estate, we’re going to give you a little peek inside our editors’ homes and tell you why we believe that #LoveIsHome. To us, this phrase is another way of saying “home is where the heart is.” Our homes are where we do our living, working, loving, and growing.

So without further ado, take a peek below to find out the things we each love most about our homes. And don’t forget to share photos of your favorite spaces with us too for a chance to win our sweepstakes with realtor.com®! Scroll down for more details…

Love is home.

Allison of Team LC's cozy living room.

I love sinking into my couch at the end of the day…
My favorite room in my house is my living room because it’s where I go to relax at the end of a long day. When I first decorating my living room, I was very picky when I was deciding on my couch and pillows—I wanted them to fit with the décor, but also wanted to feel as comfortable as possible. I love lighting candles in this room, putting on a great movie, and having “me” time.Allison, LaurenConrad.com Editor

Why Team LC loves being at home...

I love living with the best roommate ever: my sweet pup Winnie…
I didn’t realize what my apartment was missing until I adopted my adorable rescue pup Winnie last year. Now, my house really feels like a home. I’ve recently been inspired to redecorate and clean out my space, and it’s been fun to find cute ways to store my pup’s leashes, toys, and everything in between. Loving where you live really comes down to who you live with. And in my opinion, there’s nothing better than walking through my front door to see a wagging tail.Rachel, LaurenConrad.com Editor

A glimpse into the homes of our LaurenConrad.com editors...

Love is home to our Team LC editors! Here's why...

I love how so many of my pieces hold different memories…
Whenever people ask me to describe my home décor style, it’s hard to find a single word that encompasses my taste. And it’s because I like to fill my house with pieces I’ve collected that tell stories. I love the pennant flags that hang above our bed because they were a handmade decoration for our wedding. Our dresser was sourced from an amazing midcentury furniture dealer. We have mirrors and art that I’ve collected from some of my favorite flea markets. Ilana, LaurenConrad.com Editor
