A House of Her Dreams

This post at Pigtown Designs will make you want to add a twelve foot wide wrap around porch, 24 steps up to the front door, hexagonal tiles with a Greek key trim in your bathroom and a window seat in the grand hallway; this weekend. I am partial to her childhood neighborhood for extremely selfish reasons. Well, it is gorgeous after all; designed by my Great Great Uncle who was Frederick Law Olmstead, the Father of Landscape Architecture.

Thanks so much. It's really an incredible neighbourhood and so proud of its association with the Olmsteds.
