In interior architecture and decoration, this refers to the family space–where everyone can feel comfortable and be themselves, whether it be a small room, a den for recreation and discussion, reading and games.

A room or a corner of the house that feels dark, damp, uncomfortable, naturally dark or has a low ceiling can be transformed according to the idea of ‘womb’–keep the space coloured with paint and textile in deep tones and textures and make sure it is warm, with a log fire if possible.

Thick walls, small windows, open fireplace–these are all good for a ‘space apart’.
