A refreshingly down to earth Midwest home of an Architect and family graced the pages of the October 07 issue of Dwell. The Dean's place has gorgeous features (like the light wall shown above) and great bones (originally built in 1922) but what attracted us to the article was the smart mix of furniture from big stores (Room and Board, IKEA) mixed with vintage pieces and original art - a good way to go for both aesthetics and your pocketbook. More below:
