When you go from humble quarters to luxurious ones, it affects your psychology. Clean and clear lines and aesthetics, excellent design, and grand sweeping views from a beautiful window overlooking nature or a metropolis --
These make you think differently, feel differently. It can certainly inspire and motivate.
The effect, though -- it wears off.
After being in luxurious quarters for a while, the mind goes numb to it. Takes it for granted. Potentially even gets lazy and soft.
And then, when you drop down to the spectrum to more modest and humble, all the way to downright bad, you start to see how you can live independently of all the fanciness and frills and pomp.
