Fallingwater (in PA) left us speechless. It’s a home designed in 1935 by Frank Lloyd Wright. And it made our jaws drop.
We started out in the waiting area, which is a short walk away from the house. And already I was loving some of the details. Haha. Like these wooden chairs (and just now I saw those brighter green chairs in the background. I totally missed seeing those in person! They look so great.)
And I loved the wood chips on all the paths. It was drizzling that day and those wood chips just smelled so amazing.
OK, and then… the HOUSE….
This was our first glimpse at it. We were going nuts.
It really is one of the greatest things we’ve ever laid eyes on. To see such masterful design – combined with nature…oh my. It just overloaded our senses. I had heard that pictures of the home never do it justice. And yep, that’s true. Seeing it in person was unbelievable.
Do you see those stairs leading down to the creek?
I snapped a few photos of the living room with my iphone…don’t tell the tour guide!
That red kettle to the left was used to serve cider to guests and apparently filled the home with the smell of cider. Sounds dreamy.
Loved the grates in the fireplaces…
You just wouldn’t believe all the genius details throughout the home. For example, all those little windows could be opened or closed to control the level of breeze and sound from the water below…
We were SO glad we stopped here on our way to West Virginia. We couldn’t recommend this place enough. Brooklyn friends: you seriously need to get your buns over there. You will die.
