Quote of the Week

“Entering is an extraordinarily important part of experiencing a house. If you’re not welcomed by the house as you enter, it’s difficult to remedy the negative impression once you’re inside.” 

– Susan Susanka, The Not So Big House

  7. The quote of the week is very true. The feeling is not really good once you've entered a house that is not welcoming. It's very important then to remember that when you design your house, always think of the entrance because this is the first step of your visitor.
