America's leading residential architect goes beyond The Not So Big House In this groundbreaking book, America's leading architect and best-selling author Sarah Susanka looks at the key design concepts behind all well-designed homes. With these essential ideas, she gives you what you need to transform a house from mere shelter into a comfortable home filled with character and beauty. In Home By Design, Susanka presents the 30 key concepts that can be applied to any home -- no matter what the style or size. Using 28 of the best designed homes from around the country, Susanka brings these concepts to life with 150 powerful and inspirational examples -- from something as simple as placing a rug under a table to defining one room from another with a framed opening or archway. Home by Design gives you a new way to see your home and create the home that you've always wanted. Your home can be imbued with a sense of warmth, beauty and enduring quality when these ideas are combined with care and a creative spirit. It would be hard to think of a more important thinker in residential design than Sarah Susanka. Sarah's not only a gifted writer who can tell a good story, she has thought carefully about what makes you feel good about being in a well-designed house.
