Chinese New Year is coming and as usual we focus on the Interior of the house, from decorations to ceremonies to rituals.  We get caught up in all the hullabaloo and catchy songs to the extent where we have to stop and ask: What is the point of all of this?

Why is it that we only celebrate closeness with family every year, not every day?

We seek to spruce up our interior domain, but not ourselves. To keep our interior circle of friends always close. To keep our interior clean. To keep our interior untouched or unaffected by the weathers of change.

How can you wholeheartedly give a part of yourself to another if all you seek is to preserve your interior bubble?

Interior design is just that; design on the inside. Not the outside that makes up our living space. So there is no point in being an interior person, because as much as we design ourselves to be, what matters is the effort!
