About this title

Synopsis:

In Meditations on Design, best-selling author and San Francisco-based interior designer John Wheatman introduced one of his favorite themes: "A good house is never done." Now, he explores this theme in depth and shows readers how to work with their homes as living spaces that change and evolve as their own lives do.

A Good House Is Never Done is organized around the six main activities most of us do in our homes: Sleeping, Dining, Playing, Bathing, Cooking, and Working. For each of these broad topics, the author shares a wealth of design ideas, both abstract and practical, that will guide readers toward creating living spaces that are functional as well as beautiful.

With his refreshingly irreverent attitude toward design "rules," John Wheatman invites readers to reject the conventional concepts of "living room," "dining room," "kitchen," "bedroom," "bathroom," and "study." Rather than divide your home into confining and static boxes, he advises, dare to think of your life and the way you live it in expansive terms. Design flexible living spaces that accommodate your dreams and not just your life circumstances or income. Gorgeous, practical, inspirational.

About the Author:

Selected as one of House Beautiful's Top American Designers in 1999, John Wheatman has owned his design firm for thirty-four years. He has also spent more than forty years as a lecturer, begining at Mills College in Oakland, California, and now at the University of California Extension Program in Berkeley, California, and the Ichbald School of Design in London, England. He lives in San Francisco.
