A Brief Blog Profile: Design Notes
I find blogs everywhere. This blog candidate arrived by mail -- a catalog from Design Within Reach. The content caught my eye pretty quickly. Then I noticed the blog URL.
Design Notes is a look at beautiful architecture, stylish things, and interesting people. I also happen to appreciate the writing in this blog. The most recent piece posted by Gwendolyn Horton was on location with architect Michael P. Johnson.
In the post, Johnson says, "One percent of buildings are architecture. The rest are just stuff.”
"Standing six foot four with a mop of white hair and a lot to say, Johnson has a rugged elegance that’s a lot like the juxtaposition between his sleek streamlined buildings and the rough terrain of the Arizona landscape. He drives a red pickup, drinks his coffee black and likes his scotch on the rocks," Horton writes.
