What makes a home…a home?

Interesting to read about what people feel makes a home:

 ‘The notion of “home” is about the place you feel safe and where you feel connected to other people you like,’ says psychologist Linda Papadopoulos. ‘………. many of our significant memories are now created around our homes.’

The notion of private space is key to our sense of wellbeing and self-expression, believes Simon Moore, environmental psychologist at London Metropolitan University.

Perhaps it’s as simple as a favourite chair by the fire or being surrounded by simple possessions that all hold precious memories.

What do you think makes a home?
