The past month has been an exciting time for us here in Ridgewood. Allow us to tell you about it with a break down in three parts:
Part 1. Apartment Therapy Visits Ridgewood
Early in the month Nathan and Hannah held a garage sale to try and clear out a few treasures from storage. Aside from a successful sale they also had the pleasure of meeting the local writers for Apartment Therapy, a national organization “helping people make their homes more beautiful, organized and healthy by connecting them to a wealth of resources, ideas and community online.” One thing lead to another and the resulting Apartment Therapy house tour with great photos can be found here and here.
Part 2. Columbus, IN. bloggers VIP tour.
Early in the year the good folks at Atomic Indy and the visitor’s center of Columbus, Indiana approached us about attending a VIP Bloggers Tour. The weekend would include private tours of many of the buildings that encompass Columbus’s rich architectural history, including works by prominent mid century architects. Needless to say the weekend was unexpected and unforgettable, which also happens to be the catch phrase for the city. In the case that you don’t make it to Columbus for a visit enjoy a few photos highlighting the weekend.
Part 3. MODERN STL
After returning from our unforgettable weekend in Columbus we sat down with 8 fellow St. Louisans to discuss the prospect of a mid century modern themed party. Parties are great, and I’m sure we will have many of them, but thankfully this group found it beneficial to form something many of us have discussed over the years; a group solely focused on all things Modern in the St. Louis region. Preservation of the recent past. Promotion of the wonderful mid century modern architecture in St. Louis. And great parties. We are very excited.
