A home tells the story of who lives there and what their interests are. Make sure yours features items that pique your curiosity and add substance to the space. A collection of boxes, geodes or sculptures can create interest on a bookcase or coffee table, and a Turkish rug can deliver warmth and boldly welcome guests.
