Frank Lloyd Wright’s Master Bedroom

by Renae

I got this card from a private swap, thinking it very cool to see the Master Architect’s Master Bedroom! Wouldn’t you know that I tore the very thin card when I opened the envelope, but I glued it up so that it’s not too terribly noticeable.

The cards says, “A vaulted ceiling expands into what Wright considered the useless space of the attic, giving a spacious feeling to the small room. The mural, along with a companion on the south wall, was painted by Orlando Giannini in 1895. During restoration of the home and studio in 1979, ten coats of paint were removed from the murals, which afterward were carefully restored. The home and studio is a property of the National Trust for Historic Preservation.” It was built in 1889 in Oak Park, Illinois.
