House inspiration

Falling Water by Frank Lloyd Wright

In May, it will be four years since we moved into our house. Prior to moving, we lived in a one bedroom apartment in the City. I used to dream about the luxury of space and I craved actually having somewhere to put everything. Now that I have it, I SO take it for granted. One of the main reasons we purchased this particular house is because I am a Modernist at heart, and having a flat roofed house with huge windows was the closest I would ever come to a little slice of Frank Lloyd Wright or Richard Neutra's horizontal planes in my life. It may not look anything like Falling Water....but a girl can dream.

Here are a couple of famous modernist houses that make me go a bit weak at the knees. I take inspiration from these for our own little place. We haven't really touched it yet, it needs a huge overhaul and some sexying up. 2009 is to be a year of action! Some more realistic inspiration to come.....
