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.

Product Description: This follow-up to Meditations on Design shows readers how to work with their homes as living spaces that change and evolve as their lives do. Organized around six activities people conduct in their homes — sleeping, bathing, working, cooking, dining, and playing — the book suggests ideas for creating spaces that are both functional and beautiful. Each chapter features an introductory essay, lush photographs, and a discussion of a particular design technique. "Wheatman’s words and wisdom will guide you through the process ... making your house ... a place of inspiration, beauty, and vitality." — Sarah Susanka
