Do you love where you live? Even if you're pretty happy with your abode, you probably have, in the back of your mind, a little list of things that aren't quite right: photos that need to be hung, an old couch you want to replace, a corner of the tub that needs recaulking. Maybe when you walk into your home it's these imperfections that you focus on, and not the things you really love. These videos from our archives are all about embracing imperfections and learning to love living in the home that you have right now. You can be happier at home — without changing a thing.

Out of the mouths of babes! Mae, a Brooklyn kid with a great design pedigree (parents Sophie and Michael create a line of children's products called Oeuf), explains why it's okay to live in a house that isn't quite perfect.

Maybe you've been lamenting not being allowed to paint the walls in your apartment. Here, textile designer Judy Ross is here to help you learn to love what you can't change with her Ode to White Walls.

And finally, a one-minute tip from Amelia Meena of Appleshine Lifestyle Organization: love your home, and it will love you back.

Thanks for watching, and happy weekend!
