Fay Jones Home

1962 exterior of a Fay Jones home

A couple of clients called recently asking for design help with their latest mid-century modern find, an elegant E. Fay Jones home in Arkansas.  I worked with the clients to re-design their mid-century Berkeley, Ca. home and they’ve since moved to Arkansas, where Jones did much of his work.  A long-time student of Frank Lloyd Wright’s, Jones is known for his organic and detailed architectural style.  An early bonus: after a bit of research here in Fayetteville, we came across an original copy of House Beautiful from 1962 that has a seven-page photo spread of the home just after it was built!  To have these photos at the beginning of a restoration project is really ideal.  We’re off to a great start and the owners have encouraged me to post this process to my blog.  So stay tuned, and see more as I’m in Fayetteville this week.
