There is no denying that my family makes our house our home. Our animated conversations, shared meals, petty disputes, echo sing-alongs, dog walks, shared home work assignments, heated discussions and even the short moments around the kitchen island when we socially engage in our phones and not each other, creates a strong connection and familiar bond that makes us want to kick back on our couch and spend time together. At the same time though, we also feel a strong need for privacy and retreat in our home. We crave time alone and time together because both nurture our relationships that make our home ours.

What happens if our space doesn’t allow both?
Few of us are blessed with exactly the house or the apartment we need. Regardless, if we live in a fixer upper or a newly renovated place, if a space doesn’t fulfill its purpose it doesn’t work for us and will in time become a source of frustration. The most common problem we face is that we don’t seem to have a big enough space to accommodate our needs. Therefore, it lacks functionality, comfort and desire to utilize it. And we are quick to define what we lack!
When words become unclear, I shall focus with photographs. When images become inadequate, I shall be content with silence.Ansel Adams
