About the series
The desire for a place to call home feels nearly universal. Most often it is linked to words such as security, comfort, happiness and belonging. A home is a container for our possessions, our love, our hopes and our dreams. It’s also where we feel safe to share our vulnerabilities, fear and disappointments.
The past few years I found myself contemplating these concepts of home often as my life has revolved around houses: Selling my large suburban home; moving the city and living through an extensive remodel of my new abode; a month traveling in South Africa, where I was captured by beauty and simplicity of the dwellings.
What exactly defines a home? When does a house become a home? If four sheets of tin can become a home why do I desire a larger space to inhabit?
What makes your house your home?
