A home should be inspiring. All the objects in your home should reinforce your values and character. Home should be a respite of calm and peace, and a reflection of who you are.
A home should demonstrate moderation. Homes should reflect what is needed. Meet your needs, and then embrace moderation and simplicity.
A home should have balance. The best homes reflect a sense of balance within the spaces, allowing for different types of activities. Some may be more energetic, others which are more peaceful.
