Design Sponge at Home

If you're a fan of Grace Bonney's Design Sponge blog, you'll be happy to know she has a book coming out September 6th.  It's available for pre-order on amazon.
Here is a cute video she made talking about the book.

Chicago Architectural Tour

A couple weeks ago, I took the Chicago Architecture Foundation river cruise.  The Foundation is a nonprofit organization dedicated to advancing public interest and education in architecture and design.  It is well worth the 90 minutes.  A great way to get a different view of this beautiful city and appreciate its wonderful and diverse buildings.  We had a perfect summer day for our tour.
 We passed under many bridges.  Love this design too!
