Home. A word that carries so many associations and meanings. A place to disconnect from all the static and the noise and reconnect with what sustains. A place to keep all your stuff. A place for the rituals of cooking and self-care. More than mere shelter, a home should make you happy, should be easy to unwind in, should support you in being your best self. What that looks like for different people is, of course, different.
We've all seen those light and airy rooms. They don't need a "positive vibes only" sign because they clearly announce it. Conducive to positivity, to focusing on the good, to keeping on the sunny side. Bright, minimal, and spacious, it's easy to imagine walking into them and feeling like you've been given permission to exhale.
There's a lack of heaviness, conveyed through the materials and objects chosen, the colors selected and the guiding spirit of self-restraint.
How do they do it?
