What makes a home?

For me, the meaning of the word ‘home’ is not just a physical concept. Home is a certain type of energy. It's not about having four walls; it’s about the people that reside within them. Because what is a home without people? It’s a deserted, sad space.

It’s people who create a home. One of my favourite feelings that I experience when I come home is a feeling of calmness, when I hear that it’s quiet. It’s a certain type of calmness, a quiet that makes you realise you can’t hear anything and that's what I love about coming home.
