My friend, Sue and I decided to make a last-minute road trip and visit Southwestern Pennsylvania for a night. It was so much better than expected. Neither one of us had been to this part of Pennsylvania before so it was a whole new adventure for both of us. The real intention was to chase fall colors. Some places seemed like it was full of color however at Fallingwater, we were about 2 weeks too early.
But Fallingwater itself was definitely better than expected. Unfortunately, we weren’t allowed to take pictures inside or else I would have loved to show you how amazingly simple but masterfully crafted everything was. You can really tell that Frank Lloyd Wright (the architect) took his time to think of all these beautiful details of the house. I think my favorite part about it all were all the windows and terraces. It’s crazy, but there were no frames in the middle of the window. Everything opens up to nature and you can just listen to the sounds of the waterfall below all day long. I can’t even imagine how peaceful and calming living here would be. And if I remember correctly, there were 4 terraces! It would be amazing to just enjoy a simple lunch out there. This makes me want to visit Mr. Wright’s homes all around the country. I think his work is very inspiring and I’m so glad I got to see at least one of them in person.
