Go For A Walk

I am craving the sun hard. It is out today. I need to make an effort to get off my butt and go for a walk. Not only do I spend too much time indoors, my idea of exercise is doing housework. Two birds with one stone, right? If anything could get me outside and moving around it’s the chance to see beautiful architecture.

You can just passively admire, or it’s also fun to look at the details and try to pinpoint what it is that draws you to the façade. When I took a “Housing and Home Furnishings” class a while back I learned a bunch of terms for styles and features of homes. It’s fun to see how many of them I can remember.

Seriously, have you ever done this? If you’re into interior design, chances are you love a beautiful exterior too. There don’t have to be mansions around (though those are certainly beautiful most of the time). There’s probably a nice neighborhood near you that has plenty of lovely homes for you to ogle.
