"There is nothing more uncommon than common sense"
Frank Lloyd Wright.
Common sense would tell us,
We should design our homes to reduce the negative impact on our environment. Build them from sustainable materials, materials that will not cause disease or illness. Design them to be extremely energy conscious and efficient, with very little or nil running costs. Built to the worlds highest standards, naturally warm and dry.
We should design and build our homes, so we can enjoy and cherish the experience, love living in it, embracing it, without unnecessary stress and anxiety.
And finally our new homes would be designed with beauty and elegance, we should surround it with equal amounts of natural beauty and elegance, and start to put back what we have taken.
That would be, common sense.
P.S, common sense would also tell us, not to buy your beautiful mid-century timber new desk,
unseen on Trademe.
