There is a towel rack on the top of my dishwasher. This might seem like an innocuous design feature, but it ultimately left me with a broken dishwasher. Time after time, that towel rack was mistaken for a handle and daily wear and tear pulled the dishwasher loose and broke it.
Even though the rest of the world may be crazy, I think your home should be a place of calm amongst the chaos. That’s why I believe in design that is intuitive and making spaces both functional and beautiful. A front door should look like a front door- there shouldn’t be any hidden meanings. Working with an architect can help you see through layers of design glamour and decide what pieces will stand the test of time.
