Frank Lloyd Wright. Yes, please.

It's a little off the beaten path, but well worth it. The Pope Leighey House is located in Virginia, just a bit past Mt. Vernon (when driving from D.C.). The house is one of several Usonian homes designed by Frank Lloyd Wright. "Usonian" is a term that Frank Lloyd Wright used to describe domestic architecture that is free of previously established conventions. When visiting the Pope Leighey House what surprised me the most was how "modern" the house felt and looked. It must have a true spectacle when it was built in 1939!


  1. The only problem I have with Frank Lloyd Wright is that he didn't believe in closet space.

  2. Agreed! Thank you for your comment.
