Stories on belonging.
“Belonging… doesn’t require us to change who we are; it requires us to be who we are,” Brené Brown
When we feel we belong, we feel safe and secure in the knowledge that we can be our authentic selves.
In our latest batch of Kiss House stories, we explore the relationship between belonging, nature, connection and home.
We consider how bringing nature into our homes can make us feel more connected and grounded and we look at how to achieve this in a story called Bringing nature in by photographers, designers and stylists, Sue Fan and Danielle Quigley.
In Colourways drawn from the landscape, we look at how we can sensitively connect buildings to the landscape using colour and how we did so recently on a Kiss House project. We look at how colour impacts how we feel in Colour in home design and suggest that this should be considered every step of the way in home design, providing examples from the research and some Kiss House experiences.
In Memories of home Alice Swain takes a road trip down memory lane and ponders how memory and home interact to create a sense of belonging. We interview designer Daniel Heath and ask him about his work creating beautiful nature inspired pieces for the home, and about building a home studio during lockdown. Finally, we suggest some alternative ways to connect with nature in A few of our favourite things to do, see, listen to visit and more.
We hope you enjoy them!
