The new home designer’s guide to designing your own home

The home designer and architect Michael Faucher says that design is about much more than the material you use.

“Designing the house is about how it’s made, not about what it looks like,” he writes.

“I want it to feel good, but also to be practical.”

Fauchers own a design studio, Mazzon Design, and has been known to show off his home designs on Instagram.

He says he likes to keep things simple and not take any shortcuts, and he’s not afraid to push the envelope.

“The design is a story about people, their interactions, and their experiences,” he says.

“It’s about how you make people feel and what you feel about them.”

Designing the home is about what its made, rather than what it appears to be, and that’s a story with many layers.
