I miss my friend Parker. She has been gone for almost 6 days.
So, I will sniffle into my hot chocolate while showing off more of the house that she left here in Chicago. And think about some of the memories there.
How can you possibly capture all of the little details which make a bungalow so special?
Because it IS in the details you know. Bungalow lovers are suckers for detail.
The little painted robin sits above the front door in its own little nook.
Parker has this light hanging in her entry way (Click to make it larger). It is a Moravian Star made out of leaded glass panels and yes, it came with the house.
Between these two sets of doors is the entry way with a flagstone floor. The top of the front door curves "just so..."
The locks are useful and well-designed.
You answer the phone under the stairs by stepping into the phone closet, circa 1924.
My artiste friend, Parker, is not shy about color, either. She is bold and daring and knows what will look just right.
She sees the light and shadow of things. She creates the fixture for how it looks AND for the pattern of light it casts on the ceiling.
She pours herself into everything she does. That is Parker.
