Beautiful Rugs by Guildcraft

10 Aug

Anyone interested in design and interiors should set aside some time to look at the Guildcraft Carpets site. Beautiful designs, ethical production practices. Colors? Rich and elegant. How does one choose?

These reference both the Arts & Crafts movement, and the Prairie Style developed by Frank Lloyd Wright.

Renovating Wright’s Park Inn

9 Aug

Check out this website I found at

The Park Inn is in a block of Wright buildings on the town square of Mason City, Iowa. I’ve been watching this project for some years, ever since I stopped in Mason City to see the Park Inn block, and tour the Stockman House. There are very few photos of the building in better days, but they’re worth the trouble it takes to find them. On the opposite end of the block is a bank building built at the same time by Wright which is largely intact.
