Good Design is Good Design

Saturday, April 20, 2013
My passion is textiles. Fabric. Linens. Cloth. I love antique and vintage clothing, table linens, anything made of fabric.

But I also appreciate good design, no matter what the medium.

This weekend, I've had the privilege to spend three days with a group of high school students (my other job is as a teacher) participating in a youth government program at the Pennsylvania State Capitol.

It's one of the most beautifully decorated buildings of its kind in the nation, and I have not been able to resist photographing some of its beauty. From the enormity of its rotunda, to the smallest detail, the building is an exemplar of beautiful design.
