May 2, 2012Mid-Century Architecture Pinspiration –or- What I’ve Been Staring At All Week On Pinterest
It’s time to check out some fun mid-century architecture and pretty pretty MCM curb appeal. I’ve been kinda going crazy over some of this stuff on Pinterest, so I thought I would share a bit of the crazy with you guys!

A boy living in a Wright-designed house in California wrote to FLW in 1956 to ask if he would design a doghouse to go with the house. Wright sent drawings for a triangular doghouse that complemented the hexagonal main house. The doghouse was built in 1963 and taken apart in 1973, but it was just rebuilt for a Wright documentary.
The awesome house of Sharon aka, the Queen of Fifty Cents!
