3 items in your home that will start a conversation

Sharing is caring!


When you invite guests into your home, it’s only natural to want to show off a little. Your home is likely very important to you, and it’s a lovely feeling when people compliment you on it or notice certain items that you’re proud of.

You have probably filled your home with items you like, as you want to be surrounded by those things when in the place you spend most of your time. While it ultimately only matters if you find those things interesting, it’s nice when other people notice them too.

If you have friends and family over regularly or are used to hosting for any other reason, and want to have a few conversation starters in your home, here are just a few ideas.

Something from another country

If you’re lucky enough to have traveled around the world, you may have brought back a few things in that time. It’s nice to have something that reminds you of the amazing trip you took each time you look at it. 

Whether that’s an ornament from your time somewhere in Europe or a vase you bought in Asia, having this on display can also work as a great conversation starter. Most people love to travel, so when they have a chance to share and hear stories about adventures abroad, they often jump at it.

Putting something you’ve collected on your travels front and center means guests always have a chance to ask you about it.

 Something that’s personalized

Your home is completely your own, and it’s great to be able to make it as unique and interesting as you are. 

Having personalized belongings dotted around your house can not only add to the feeling that this place is really yours but is also a great opportunity for guests to ask you about them. 

There are so many things that you can make personal, whether that’s personal to you or the people you share your home with. From expressing your style with personalized kitchen appliances to remembering loved ones who have passed with commemorative cremation urns, there are so many options out there.

Having these items in your home is sure to generate conversation.

Something you’ve put your heart into

When you put your heart into something, people really notice. Hard work can really pay off, especially when you put the right care into it.

Whether you’ve recently taken time to decorate a beautiful room or have cared for a house plant that has now tripled in size, it’s wonderful to be able to show these to friends and family that come over. 

Few things can make you prouder than something you’ve put your heart into, and when this is something in your home, it really gets people talking. 

There is nothing wrong with wanting your home to create conversation. It’s nice to be recognized in many areas, but when your home and sense of style are complimented by your guests, it feels fantastic.
