There is no way one could ever convince me that all black is anywhere near as interesting or brave a choice as the commitment to going all white or all beige.

<Insert sarcastic eye roll here.>

While it's not for me personally, I can get behind it 100%. Crisp. Clean. I can see every detail from a new perspective. Alum garage door. It's kind of like a tuxedo for your house.

And, it's only paint.

Bravo.

Nice solution. Where can I get those wall hung lamps over the table/desk?

What a great article. As an an architect struggling with the realities of this horrible economy, anytime we get a shout-out from clients that see the inherent value we bring to the table with our experience and education - I say "thank you."

However, I would argue two points with you. Without an architect, you would have spent more time and more money. Not might, would. The second, well, not everyone is a comedian (or an architect).

The best clients are the ones that proscribe to the philosophy of assembling a team for a project; client, architect and builder. That team together is very strong. You have a dream, I interpret it and the builder builds it. I hope the next time you embark on a design or construction project you hire an architect from the beginning. But please, there is no need to be snarky or glib about it.
