Home Sweet Home
During class we talked of how Starbucks tries to replicate a sense of “home” or familiarity through its repeated designs and color schemes within each store throughout the world. Little did I know, not only can this sense of home be manufactured by a place like Starbucks but it can also be present in Mother Nature.
This weekend I brought my roommate back home to Vermont with me. Since she grew up near NYC I feared what she’d think of my backwoods country town. To my surprise she said, “It reminds me a lot of Poland, I like it.” Oddly enough Vermont was nostalgic of her heritage in Poland and she actually enjoyed herself in my small little town for the weekend. I found it interesting that Mother Nature could replicate a feeling of home from one country to another.
