The last remaining residence still standing in L.A. by Greene and Greene is for sale. Standing technically within the city boundaries, that is. Sorry the picture is so small; I can’t seem to find one anywhere online that is not Lillipution. The Lucy E. Wheeler House was built in 1905 and it’s on the market for $775,000. If you’re interested, check out all of the details here.

Inspiration Monday: Frank Lloyd Wright

In my effort to not be featured on Hoarders in the next ten years, I have been cleaning out drawers, cabinets, closets and attic spaces since the new year. It’s funny, there are certain items that are considered for the recycling bin each year, but for some reason or another they never quite make it in. Such is true with my Wright Houses 1997 datebook. Holy Moly. That thing is now 13 years old! I tried to turn it into a birthday calendar book so I’d have an excuse to keep it, but there are about four birthdays in there, and besides, that’s what Facebook is for.

So, after already pulling it from the recycling bin AGAIN last week (What if I want to cut out the pictures for my inspiration board? (O.K., then just do it!). What if I make cards out of the pictures (um, Becky, you never send cards anymore, and besides, you have about 200 you can use before you even get to your Wright Houses sloppy glued together 3rd grade postcards. There will be no craft to your tribute to Arts and Crafts). It’s time. I can let go because I have scanned a few favorite images from the photographs to share with you on Inspiration Monday. It’s the first time I’ve been organized enough to have an Inspiration Monday since 2009. Can you imagine how long it would take the Hoarders crew to get my house cleaned out? Viewers at home would say things like “Oh, did you see the crazy cat lady one?” “No man, that’s nothing, what about the crazy girl who had to scan everything before she put it in the dumpster and blog about it?!”

The book I laid out on my coffee table this week is Twentieth Century Pattern Design by Lesley Jackson. Many of these prints have been making a huge comeback over the past ten years, as we’ve seen them everywhere from Josef Frank Anthropologie sofas to William Morris Prada pumps.

An array of Art Noveau prints designed around the turn of the cenury. Clockwise from top left: Lindsay Butterfield, Sidney Mawson, Allan Vigers, and George C. Haite.
