I am sure I am not the only one who loves to get a peek into how others live. Not so much in the voyeristic manner no, no, but more so in witnessing the variety of ways people make their homes their own. A good way to do this without being labeled as a full on voyeur…check out the recently published “America at Home.” The book captures all the ways that we work, play, learn, live, interact and transform our dwellings into our homes. From McMansions, to mobile homes, to tree houses, to tenement slums, to ranches, to retirement homes…the amazing images document the harmonies and paradoxes of home life in the United States.
