• talking about “烘” …….

    烘 [ home ], the house where one's family lives. The word "烘" is not the word for "home" in Chinese (家 is the correct Chinese character). But the pronunciation of "烘" in Chinese is similar to "home" in English , and if you look at each part of this Chinese character, you will find it very interesting. "火" on the left side means: fire, and "共" on the right side means: sharing or together. When putting both parts together, it means to share warmth together. I believe that is what a home should be. Home is not only a house where one's family lives but also where family shares warmth, laughter and tears together. This is the mission of my interior design. I like to do home design. I like to make each home where families can share love together.
