Meyer May House, Grand Rapids, MI
Frank Lloyd Wright’s Meyer May House is considered to be an exemplary example of the Prairie style. Built in 1908-1909, it features a hip roof with broad overhanging eaves, art glass windows in horizontal bands and pale brick that were common features of Wright’s houses. Wright designed nearly every aspect of the house, including the furniture, windows, light fixtures and rugs. The house underwent a major restoration in 1986. Nearly everything appears as it would have originally, including a mural of hollyhocks that had been covered by layers of paint for years. The house is open for (free!) tours.
Bringing back an old post in honor of the 100th anniversary of the mass murder at architect Frank Lloyd Wright’s Taliesin in Spring Green, Wisconsin. One of his servants Julian Carleton set the property on fire and killed seven people, including Wright’s mistress Mamah Borthwick Cheney, with an axe on August 15, 1914.

Frank Lloyd Wright, why I can’t I quit you?
I just enjoy making these so much. His leaded glass is just so beautiful. I keep coming across this coloring book of his window designs, and I’ve, uh, got a birthday coming up in 7 months, so you know… Just playin’, but it’s still such a cute little book!

Pacific Dwelling for Mr. and Mrs. Morris, San Francisco, 1945
VC Morris commissioned Frank Lloyd Wright to build a gallery on Maiden Lane in San Francisco. While working together, Wright proposed this mansion for Morris’ dramatic lot in San Francisco’s Seacliff neighborhood. Morris considered Wright’s first design too elaborate (top). He asked Wright to dial it back. The bottom image shows the toned-down version haha. It was never built; Morris’ Xanadu Gallery is Wright’s only San Francisco building.
