I really enjoyed visiting the Bungalow house on Mendenhall. I was surprised to see so many similarities to the bungalow I live in. The two houses were built 5 years apart. The layout of the house is very similar, along with window placement, and moldings. The exact same fireplace is in both houses. It was great to see another house from that era. I thought the dining room was a beautiful space. My favorite feature in the dining room are the french doors.
I visited four houses on the tour. Taste ranged from contemporary to modern. I liked the color palettes used in the houses and most of the light fixtures. The light fixtures were light and minimalist. Most of the houses had large rooms and windows. Most fixtures were on the light side, except for some dark wood.
Coming into this studio I expect to gain a new understanding of spaces and the objects within them. I would like to learn about ergonomics of design and the layout of the room. Color theory is also very interesting to me. I am most looking forward to experimenting with new materials and forms.
