How beautiful??? I’ve never visited Greece but am dying to…
This is my dream:
I love drawings of columns & architectural details and could fill my walls & home with a collection of them. Check out this ancient book:
I’m considering this drawing originally by Sir William Chambers for a client:
Speaking of columns I don’t own, below is a photo of my dad’s house in Barrington Hills, Illinois when I was growing up. He designed it & learned a ton in the process. I spent summers, every other holiday and random vacations there. (My parents divorced when I was 2 years old and my mom & I moved to Virginia when I was 4 to be near my grandparents and my dad stayed in Illinois.) My dad remarried a woman who had two kids near my age (whom I absolutely adored) when I was 7 and built the house for us all. Without getting all into the crazy very sad details, my dad & my stepmom divorced seven years later and my dad eventually sold the property when I was in college. But I’ve always loved this house. Seeing it built from the ground up, watching my stepmom decorate it and doing my bedroom (eek- spongepainting!! 🙂 all made me love the design process. My dad built us the best 3-story treehouse in the world and I still dream about it. I could go on & on so I’ll save it for another day. (I have video tours I made when I was a kid so I’m going to try to upload them if I can.) But anyway, I remember playing on the front porch, marching around and around the big white columns singing songs with my stepsister.
Anyway, I’m off to start the day but have a great weekend! Stay warm!!!
