No Rita Konig Column Today?

Am I the only who's sad that Rita Konig's design column wasn't posted today? Tuesday's just aren't the same without having read a great post from her. One of my recent favorites was her post on how to create a sense of depth in a space, so it feels more cozy and really lived-in. (Read it here.) One of her ideas is to try placing an item, such as a basket of logs, for instance, behind a living room sofa. I like this although, in my opinion, it wouldn't work for every home. Regardless, the point is to think more creatively about the use of space in your home and to figure out ways to make better use of it--even if it's the tiny area behind your sofa.
