Some styles of houses are just beautiful. They don’t have to be big or fancy either. The American bungalow fits that description. Its such a classic house design from the 1st half of the 20th Century. Typically bungalows are smaller in size, built on small or narrow city lots and are one story or story and 1/2.
Ready for five minutes to brighten up your dull winter day? Let’s leave Des Moines and head down to West Palm Beach, Florida and tour an interior designers’ Show House. What’s a Show House? Its a fixer-upper or new construction that is taken over by interior as well as landscape designers with each designer dressing a room or space up. They are literally showing off their talents for the public. Tickets are sold and thousands tour the home. Money is raised for local charity. To be honest there hasn’t been a Designer’s Show House in the Des Moines metro in quite a few years. Which is too bad because there are a lot of talented designers around Central Iowa.
As preparation for Art At The Castle, a fine art sale and charitable fundraiser that I’ll be putting on November 8 at Salisbury House & Gardens to benefit Salisbury House and Des Moines Metro Opera, I recently took a quick trip to the Chicago suburb La Grange. While there, I checked out a fine art trunk show at Mary Vincent Fine Art Gallery in the Chicago suburb of La Grange, Illinois. The sale was Saturday & Sunday, April 28 and 29. Walter Edelman, a private art dealer from New York City was conducting the sale. Walter will also be the art dealer at our event this fall. To give you an idea of what a fine art sale looks like, I took some photos and video of the action. The art was wonderful and the nice people at Mary Vincent Fine Art Gallery were gracious hosts.
