Does Your Space Influence Your Behaviour?

You remember your manners while seated in the formal dining room of friends of your parent's and sprawl all over the couch at your best buddy's. It's not just the company or expectations, it's also the place that indicates how you should behave...

The stiff chairs in the dinng room of your parent's friends said "Be careful, sit up straight," while your friend's cushy couch invited kicking back with a beer. Whether it's the individual pieces, the arrangement or the color, each room will speak in a different tone. What do you want your home to say to people when they come over? What do you want it to say to you?
