Madame Squee 

When I see piles of trunks, my mind leaps immediately to the wonder and joy of taking off on an adventure and also to the sense of happiness and satisfaction at returning home.

Based on the position of the the hasp and padlock on the door, I believe the trunks and cases are sitting on the floor outside a storage room, and they are either just coming in or going out. I feel movement and activity in this image, as well as a good amount of planning and directing.

The unfinished appearance of the exposed-brick and plaster wall next to the door makes me think we are down in the basement, not near the living quarters.

The door, however, is much too ornate for an ordinary storage room. I think its beauty and the sturdiness of its lock are indicators that treasures are stored behind it.
