The difference between a house and a home lies in the intangibles, things designers describe as “mood” or “taste.” Though hard to quantify, they’re the sum of deliberate decisions: the amount of lighting, the position of plants, the color of the walls. After living with them, we may fail to notice the things that make our spaces distinct. But to outsiders and guests, they’re the markers of a carefully considered home — even if it’s as simple as a better-smelling hand soap.
