Great articles and photography examples - Any well thought out design aspects utilising leading lines, angles or curves make a standard room or space super interesting. One of my challenges I love is walking in to a well designed and thought out space, working hard to capture the essence of that space in a great composition. Love it.

Great article thank you. I’m neither an architect or interior designer but I know what I need in my living requirements. I must have a view, situated amongst nature so I know what season we are in and be able to observe the local flora and fauna. I am scared of dark places and had a very uncomfortable experience in an English castle once. I need to see the sky and be aware of approaching weather. I like everything to have its place and hate high ceilings where the warm air lives. I love gadgets and need my home to be a Sanctuary for my family and myself. I don’t want neighbours overlooking my property. Our home is a 1970 brick veneer house but being situated on 1 acre it has been able to accommodate our family’s needs for 40+ years. Now our family has grown to 4 grandchildren and 6 adults, the house is still accommodating our needs. Instead of downsizing we now run a B & B. Our home has been our sanctuary for 43 years. I know I am very emotionally attached to our home with all its wonderful memories.
