Home design expert releases walking guidebook of downtown


Take Time To Find explores the art and architecture of the Biggest Little City


A keen eye, a stroll and a new book published by home design expert Missy Stewart reveals downtown Reno’s best – and often unnoticed – art and architecture.

Take Time To Find is a book that presents readers with a challenge to discover the sometimes hidden beauty in Reno’s downtown corridor.

On each page is an unnamed image photographed on the west side of downtown Reno, Nevada — the area between Virginia Street (north & south) on the east, Arlington Avenue (north & south) on the west, Court Street on the south, and West 4th Street on the north.

Taking a walk with the guidebook challenges downtown explorers to look past Reno’s bright lights and advertisements to discover some of the city’s amazing art and architecture. The answers to the image locations in the book are on Stewart’s Web site: www.missystewartdesigns.com.

“Enjoy your stroll through downtown Reno,” said Stewart, “and take the time to find the beauty around you.”

Take Time To Find is available at Tassels at 6890 South McCarran Boulevard or The Red Chair at 6135 Lakeside Drive, or by contacting Missy Stewart at 775-745-0327.
