Thanks to Cynthia Lynn for sharing these good photos and detailed information about the Frank Lloyd Wright Home & Studio. I've participated in the annual Frank Lloyd Home Walk several times, most recently a few months ago - truly fantastic human inspired designs, dreamy homes, and seriously ultra-modern for the time - certainly something to be admired and protected!

History has a way of changing people and needs, and so when we were given the task of taking on a Robbie House look-alike home project in a gated community in Shanghai China, we tried very hard to incorporate Frank Lloyd Wright elements wherever we could, but given the needs of the owners and the passing of nearly a decade in advancements of kitchens, bathrooms, furniture, etc., we felt a need to somewhat unlock Frank Lloyd Wright's excellent design concepts from the constraints of time - our thinking being that even he would have modernized over the years and his designs in the 21st century would probably be quite a bit different than his earlier designs.

The main living floors of the new home are quite conservative and exhibit many FLW elements, but we completely re-interpreted the recreation and media center area to meet the owner's wish for a funky psychedelic chinoiserie fun zone - well, see for yourself in the ideabook below!

I grew up in IL but sadly never saw any of these homes. I hope to go back someday. My father was born in Richland Center, Wisconsin Wright's birthplace also. I have visited the home in Spring Green, and now live near Manchester, NH where another Wright home is open for visitors. To appreciate Wright just think about the other homes built during this time and he was a genius. His design is still imitated and the colors are those we see in nature everyday. LOVE IT!

I usually think vintage should just be a taint on more other modern palettes but this is undeniably stunning! So comfortable, craftsy and slick while still retaining a certain folksiness that doesn't require dark woods or cooky clocks! Fantastic!

Beautifully done, especially the dining area redo. It all seems very sophisticated and classy but the master bed room chandelier and painting above the bed have a bit of a cheaper vibe. I would swap those out for something else that would be on par with the rest of this great design job.
