Your home is one of the few places where you can exercise complete control over your surroundings. Explore your tastes, indulge and comfort yourself, make your home a place where you can replenish your energies time and time again, so you can enjoy the leisure, and even the work, of your daily life. It takes time, care, and thought, but the value of building this second self is lasting.
— Celerie Kemble (as quoted in her book, To Your Taste)
