Applied Design: Using the Golden Ratio

I mentioned in my post about the Room of the Week yesterday that I would be doing a little lesson on the Golden Ratio, and specifically how you can use it to decide where to put a chair rail.  That means there is MATH involved.  If I completely lost your interest, then please come back tomorrow for a prettier, less brainy post!  But, if you’re still with me…here we go:

Also, I’m NOT a math whiz…if you can explain it better, or have a good example…please share!
