At about the same time of that post, I heard from Charles Cooley, an instructor at the Art Institute of Fort Worth and the architectural consultant on the renovation. He had seen my blog posts and offered me a private tour of the home, which was the subject of a recent article in the Fort Worth Star-Telegram. (The article contains some before and after shots, as well as photos of other rooms and closets.)
Yesterday, after months of writing about the home, I finally got to see it for myself. I was joined by my daughter and SIL and several friends who also own homes from that era and share our passion for design.
At some point in the future, Cooley, as well as an interior designer who works with him and his student who took the cover photo for the print article will do a guest post and answer any questions you have about the home's history and their role in the renovation. Be sure to jot down anything you'd like to ask and email me or leave it in the comment section.
Cooley, an architect and an architectural photographer, will be sending me his photographs of the house, but today I'm sharing with you some shots my daughter and SIL made during yesterday's tour.
