The answer may be easy for many of you. Whose bedroom is this? Take a guess and see below the jump...
Who slept here? The answer is Olga Milanoff. Does the name ring a bell? You may know her as Mrs. Frank Lloyd Wright. She was FLW's last wife and this was her bedroom at Taliesin West.
"Love your work, love your wife, tell the truth -- that's all there is to life." - Frank Lloyd Wright.
Tips & Techniques
I guessed it!That's a great quote -
Ohh, the view from her room is onto the tiny grass yard and the most super fab patio metal set.I was just there in Nov. amazing space.
I knew it had to be Taliesin West. When I saw that unusual double chair, I thought of Olga and Ol' Frank sitting in it.
And who was Frank Lloyd Wright's granddaughter? The movie actress Anne Baxter!
Where did he sleep?
I also focused on the unusual double chair - but since I had no idea I guessed two left handed people.I have better luck with "guess the decade" contests.
I guessed Frank Lloyd Wright, so I wasn't too far off. I work in a FLW building, so the room looked kind of familiar.
Didn't he have a terrible home life?
More like he was a terrible person.
You're both "wright"! (Sorry). Wright had a family with lots of kids in Oak Park, IL when he ran away with the wife of a client, one Mamah Cheney. He had Taliesin built in Spring Green, WI as a new home, but not too long after a groundskeeper at the home went nuts, set fire to Taliesin, and murdered 7 people with an axe, including Mamah and her 2 children. Olga (Olgivanna) was his third wife (he never married Mamah and there was a 2nd wife, Miriam, between Mamah and Olgivanna), and they seemed very well-suited to each other.
He was married when he ran off with the wife of a client. True. That's why I said he wasn't a very nice person.
also, his son invented lincoln logs...
i guessed it correctly because it's the same weird decorating scheme as the Falling Water House...
