designing home

We are house hunting. But what we are really doing is preparing to create a new home, one for a phase of life that is just the two of us. We anticipate cultivating a space that facilities our particular idiosyncratic likes and eliminates those things we don't appreciate.

... so to help me think well I have reached onto my carefully curated book shelf and started a slow digestion of Monocle's Guide to Cosy Homes. 400 pages of rich reflection and and insight. (and 'yes' Leonard Cohen on rotation again tonight)

It also means my radar is alert to good design ... spaces where the physical environment invites healthy human behaviour, and so snapped this shot while waiting for a flight last week.
