I recently received an email from Heights resident Nadia Lauterbach, a Designer with her own residential studio in the neighborhood. She has recently started a blog about architecture, design, travel, art, decoration, that kind of thing. The most recent post is about the Victorian Architecture of the Heights and I thought I would share it with my own blog readers. Nadia says "I know there are several blogs bouncing around about the Heights, but I thought this one might be a little different since it is someone with an architecture degree, as well as a homeowner, doing the writing. I plan to do a whole series about the Heights on different topics." Sounds interesting and I can't wait to see more!
