for the book, which Rhys-Morgan repeated in his own mind as he finished it solo, was: "Things should look as if they couldn't have existed any other way." In the book, Rhys-Morgan asked Goodman if he knew right away how he would translate a room into a painting, the illustrator replied, "The truth is that it's more about a private memory in my mind than the actuality of it. I have always felt that one's memory of a room is more accurate than a photograph. A portrait of a room should express the personality of the person who lives there, whose character has shaped it. Many people think of a room as an entity in itself, but they're mistaken. A room is never static. It is constantly undergoing changes: it looks different by night, by day, by electric light. Even the people in it and what they wear, the colors, the fabrics, all affect the feeling of a room. I try to come up with a dramatic quality that befits the clients' lives, that is their statement, not mine. That has always been the way I have thought of rooms — in terms of their spirit."
