The article is devoted to the investigation on the connections between the home representation and moral motives level in youth. The following hypotheses were examined: 1) the higher is the home environment friendliness the stronger are inhabitants' moral motives 2) this connection is moderated by gender. 550 students (25% males) of different trades participated in the survey (Mage=20,6, SDage=2,3. To assess their home representations, multi-scale questionnaires the Functionality of the home environment and the Relevance of the home environment were used (Nartova-Bochaver et al., 2015, 2017), to examine the moral motives level the Moral Motives Model (MMM) scale was used (Janoff-Bulman, Carnes, 2013). It is found that the friendliness of the home environment is really connected with moral motives but the multi-regression analysis showed their different directions depending on gender: whereas in males, friendly home contributed to the high moral motives level, in females, on contrast, moral motives contributed to the development of the friendly home representation. Results are discussed taking into consideration routine techniques of the home personalization and horizons of the home image actualization.
