"Home is Where..."??

Well, if I answered this question last week, I would've said "Home is Where...The SNOW DAYS Are!! "

I don't care how old you are, you are never too old to get out and enjoy the beauty and rareity of a North Carolina snowfall-And the occassional snowball fight!
However, if you chose to stay indoors during the bought of cold, snowy was it?
If "Home is where the Heart should be", then why do too many of us answer "Home is Where...The White Walls Are"!
As a designer, I can't think of anything worse than a home that doesn't cultivate quiet moments, offer inspiration, and reflect the inhabitants' personality with it's colors and decor.
With our economy making us all cringe and the cold weather settling in, we find ourselves spending more and more time at home. So, let's make it exciting!?
