Thanks so much to my blogger friend Maya (of Visualingal and more recently, of Seed Bomb MANIA – they are EVERYWHERE!), for tipping me of into this peek into Charley Harper’s house compliments of House Trends Cincinnati. Not somewhere where you can obtain a copy of this regional glossy? They are generous enough to post the entire thing online. Here’s a little teaser of the layout, it’s going to make you want to click that link and check out the entire article!

I first was exposed to Charley as a child, as our Cincinnati Nature Center was filled with his wonderful work. I never realized how famous he was until I spied Todd Oldham’s country home in Met Home awhile back (RIP Met Home, we miss you!).

By the way, my cat loves Charley as well:

    I’ll never tire of Charley’s work, and his house is amazing! I’m glad you’ve shared this with your readers, and I have a couple more Harper tidbits. vintage photos of the house, plus images of a illustration series that the architect did with Charley for Ford Times magazine tons of photos of Charley’s art in people’s homes [including our own humble apartment!]
