Web tour: Custom Home: Current housing trends

Take It Outside/A Room of One's Own (Manchester Garage/Garden Room by KHS)This week's Design Studio newsletter from Hanley Wood, LLC links to a Custom Home article which features current housing trends cited by architects and designers at this year's National Association of Home Builders International Builders Show. The story highlights 20 of the trends identified by 13 architects and designers in a 90-minute session at the Show.

I found eight of Custom Home highlights to be particularly relevant. They are titled: 

#7. Do the Right Thing.

#10. Gray Power

#11. Micro-'Hoods

#15. In the Pocket

#17. A Room of One's Own

#18. Take it Outside

#19. Dial Up the Density

#20. It Never Hurts to Ask
