Places like home

A really good and significant blog from Lucy Series that warrants setting aside the time to read and digest…. (the opinion of the Residential Forum)

“Home is not the same as being ‘homely’ or ‘homelike’ – it is not about murals or pictures or wallpaper or knick-knacks, tablecloths and doilies. It is not even about surrounding someone by their own possessions (“personalising” their bedroom). More fundamentally, home is also about our relationships with our material environment, about practices of making home.”

And here’s Lucy Series answers
