For the last two and a half years, we have introduced you to some of the most beautiful houses from all around the world...
Few days ago we`d come across an old issue of COLORS Magazine ( # 27 from Sep. 1998 ) and we thought it would be interesting to share it with you ...
People often mistake a HOUSE for a HOME...
Beautiful architecture, breathtaking interior design and creative walls have no value if you don't make it your home.
You don't have to be rich to do that!
For five years, now, we have been following so many different architecture blogs and don't get us wrong, we enjoy reading them.
The problem is- they are all the same...
Post after a post, always publishing the same type of glossy, magazine- fit architecture. Frankly, it has become tiresome... As Ettore Sottsass said :
" I SELDOM COME ACROSS ARCHITECTURE, THE KIND THAT TRIES CAREFULLY TO WRAP ITSELF AROUND MY BODY AND MY VERY FRAGILE SOUL..."
and only then a house can become a home!
" Home is a roof over my head " Gorban, 27, UK
" Home is where you always want to go back to. " Jorge, 34, Argentina
" Home is all the effort and sacrifice that I've ever made. " Vera, 76, Serbia
" Home is a warm bed. " Hye-Yun, 15, South Korea
" Home is where my mother is. " Giuseppe, 28, Italy
" Home is where I can scream at the top of my lungs and no one cares. " Natalie, 14, SAD
" Home is where most of my memories are. " Josef, 70, Czech Republic
" Home is where I go to change clothes between parties. " Ivan, 19, Russia
" Home is a haven, a privileged place characterized by complex phenomena: it is a place of returning to oneself, a place in which one`s reality is lived through thoughts and dreams "
