Domestic, it's a lovely word. I conjures up images if home and family and the everyday. I found it interesting that architectural and interior design firm James Mohn Design Studio uses it in their profile. ".... contemporary domestic environments that are beautifully proportioned, integrated with their site and relevant to their context." Not the word residential as so many websites use. Domestic. Yes James Mohn designs truly beautiful contemporary spaces but more importantly they consider their inhabitants, families and real people.
