And I'd love to plan a quiet fireside-supper like this one...
Wishing you a cozy week!

|The exterior of Wright's home looks as contemporary today as it did nearly half a century ago.|
|The Kitchen, Dining Room, and Living Rooms are all open to one another for easy entertaining. The 3-Legged Eames chairs were custom-made for Wright to work on the natural stone floor. Feel free to swoon.|
|That IS a tree in the middle of the Great Room - Wright's architect used an old trunk found on the property as one of the main support beams for the house. The curved staircase is all natural stone.|
|Wright designed this luxe bathroom for his daughter complete with sunken bathtub and sliding glass doors to her own private patio. And, oh yeah, her private patio had an outdoor fireplace too. Lucky Girl.|
|The first glimpse you catch of Wright's home on the tour - there's an old quarry that he turned into a swimming pond at the base of those cliffs. It's a bit dark & murky now, but must have been divine when the Wright lived here.|
|Obviously, I LOVE the monogrammed chair backs (See old post on Monograms). And the framed fabric swatches on the back wall are such an easy, inexpensive way to add a new print or color to a room - major impact without a big commitment.|
|Piping is the key to this vibrant seat - whether you're trimming a neutral fabric with navy or going bold like this chair, piping gives a basic piece of upholstery that extra something special. Worth every penny.|
|Flank artwork with brackets and sculptures for an extra layer of dimension - if parrots are too palm-beach, try urns or simple vases. Want to show off your rug? This lucite coffee table keeps the focus on the prints, not the case goods.|
|I can't help but love this swinging chair - my Grammy had one at her house in Florida, and I've always longed for one of my own. Outdoors or in, it's the perfect perch for enjoying an arnold palmer - don't you want one too?|
