There is a very popular adage saying “Home is where the heart is”. You might meet a person time and again, but not know him completely. However, if you visit the house of the person, you might be able to know about his choices, personality traits, attitude and even his lifestyle in detail.
Your home reflects all the above-mentioned aspects brilliantly. Though your home is your haven of security and comfort, it is also the place where personalities are developed and explored. It is also a place where the choices you made in your life are reflected. Home is a place for self-reflection, for identifying with the kind of lifestyle we lead and so on.

Color Scheme – Focus on the kinds of colors which are used in the house. These provide a great deal of information on the personality traits of the home owner as well as on the kind of lifestyle that they lead. And the colors that we are talking about relate to the interiors as well as exteriors of the house. You will see that generally people who are adventurous and expressive choose bright colors for their walls. However, if you see neutral shades or lighter shades, the personality of the person is a cautious one. In many houses, you might see a combination of colors. These are more balanced people and are believed to lead a decent lifestyle.
