Regarding Homes - A Few Thoughts For The New Year

Happily, there's much "up" to report in the world of residential Architecture, interior design, building, and planning as we enter the new year -

So if you're in need of a resolution for the new year, try these on for size:

Architects - let's challenge ourselves to create homes that are gifts to the owners, rather than monuments to design. The best award we can win is the improvement of the lives of our clients.

Interior Designers - the best-decorated homes shouldn't look like you've been there at all; they should look like they're lived in by someone with great taste.

Builders - a renewed focus on quality, not quantity, will turn heads your way. Smaller, smarter, better is here to stay.

Planners - good design - at all levels - is the glue that holds everything together; forget you ever heard the term "Level of Service" - replace it with "Level of Design" instead

I look forward to celebrating the delightful, the subtle, the amazing, the restrained, and the responsible in Architecture, decorating, and building in 2012!
