- The Miller House was commissioned by J. Irwin Miller in 1952.
- Mr. Miller was responsible for most of the contemporary architecture in Columbus built around that time.
- The Miller House was recently donated to the Indianapolis Museum of Art. It took 3 years of strategic restoration & opened to the public in May.
- The home is 8,028 square feet.
- Thick slabs of marble run floor to ceiling as if it's wallpaper throughout the house.
- Architect Robert A.M. Stern said to have been "dazzled by the whole thing" & "the Millers had more gizmos than the Jetsons".
- Fabric Designer Alexander Girard designed the interiors.
I just fell head over heels for this house. I've never seen interiors so beautifully original and in tact from a home built in the '50s. The colors are surprisingly modern and not unlike most homes seen in Elle Decor (from which these images are from).
What do you think of the Friday Back When feature? Let it go or is it something you're enjoying? I do believe I may move on to something else, unless of course you love it.
Today, Halloween, marks the 4th of that I've been blogging. Not on this blog, just in general. It's a crazy thought that I've been at this for so long. I have some big things in the works that will be launching January 1st. I said it, so now you have to hold me accountable to it!
Happy Halloween darlings!
