"Study nature, love nature, stay close to nature. It will never fail you." — Frank Lloyd Wright


For this project, Wright was inspired by the owner Aline Barnsdall's favorite flower—the Hollyhock—and incorporated a ton of details into the exterior, interior, and the furnishings, all of which he oversaw. 

Last year the space was renovated to restore it to its original glory, and it's definitely worth a visit if you're in LA. Walking on the grounds and observing Wright's attention to detail, it's a reminder: the small things matter.

A few weekends ago, Tyler and I did a little tour of the Hollyhock House. There are a bunch of architectural gems in LA, many open to the public, and this is a good place to start (even though no photos are allowed inside, we took some shots outside): Hollyhock was Frank Lloyd Wright’s first Los Angeles project, built between 1919 and 1921, and Wright’s first attempt to develop a type of architecture specific to California.
