|I just returned from a whirlwind business trip to Chicago. (plus I have a bit of exciting news I’d like to share but more on that Monday) That’s such a great city! It actually allowed me a couple of hours to actually sit and read a magazine! September’s issue of House Beautiful looks great and so does this house by designer Ashley Whittaker. Her application of lattice on this sun porch is both creative and three dimensional. There’s something welcoming, fresh and a bit old fashioned about this classic pattern.
