We're thinking about enjoying our community: Community is integral to our new design (and all the new features we'll be rolling out in the coming weeks and months) which will allow for greater reader input and involvement; a place to define your home online and share your ideas and questions.
It's also the reason for our House Tour Party (this friday!), where we get together offline to tour five live work lofts in the West Loop and celebrate our Chicago House Tour participants present and past. Maxwell will be here to meet the local readers and we'll all after-party at Lumen. We hope you'll join us!
Even our new monthly theme is about that intersection of community and enjoyment: entertaining. Gathering with friends and family is a huge part of what's good about the holidays - we'll be blogging tips, ideas, inspiration and products to help make your parties and gatherings (as a host or guest) do-able and enjoyable.
As always, we love to hear from you. Your input on the new design (parts of which are still under construction - lots more to come!), your RSVP for the House Tour Party on 12.7.07 and your questions, ideas and photos on entertaining (or anything else that's on your mind about home this month) are welcome at firstname.lastname@example.org.
