“I've learned that people will forget what you said, people will forget what you did, but people will never forget how you made them feel.” 

― Maya Angelou

Even as a designer who is trained to be sensitive to the details, a measure of a space should be taken by the way it make people feel, because that is what we all, including myself, remember most strongly. Are we comfortable? Inspired? Relaxed? or Anxious? Just like people, the space surrounding us has a huge impact on the way we feel. This is no more crucial than to someone like me who designs people's homes. My ego wants my projects to be stunning but they also need to be approachable for the people who will inhabit them every day.
