If you like old houses, maybe you take a drive in other neighborhoods now and again to gaze upon their beauty. And then you go for ice cream.
If you are a BIG, DORKY, HOUSE GEEK, you get down to the Ballroom of the School of the Art Institute of Chicago at 7 pm on a Wednesday in September to see Sarah Susanka.
Because if you are into design, architecture, small spaces or old houses, you would really enjoy Sarah Susanka. She is the best-selling author of the "Not So Big House" series, she is an award winning architect, and she advocates the "build better, not bigger" approach to design. She can explain, better than anyone I know, specifically why a space feels cozy, warm or inviting so that you can use those principles of design in your own living spaces.
Do you think it would freak her out if I showed her my "Not So Big House" tattoo?
