The daughter of the Frost family (Patty) reached out to us and shared a few family photos recently. They are some snap shots from her wedding that took place at the Frost House. Apparently the ceremony was held in the living room, and it was followed by a reception at the local country club. We love that they not only show some history of the original occupants of the house, but they give a glimpse into the garden. We had heard, and we can see some remnants, that a Dogwood existed by the front door. These photos provide proof of the tree, and show what it looked like growing up through the black steel beams along the front walkway. Oh, and look – there is a peek at some yew hedges that are no longer there along the side of the house.
We are excited to announce that The Frost House along with Banksy our ‘Resident Dog’ are featured in a book due to be released Nov 10th 2020 on Amazon. Last fall photographer Nicole England and her Stylist / Assistant Natalie James paid us a visit from Australia. The duo for 6 weeks traveled the world to capture some incredible homes, by legendary architects and designers (Kelly Wearstler, Jonathan Adler, Luis Barragan, Found Associates .. to name a few). Anyway, straight from the website of publisher Hardie Grant (UK) here is what they have to say about the book:
…. showcases over 25 of the world’s most amazing houses, and the dogs that live there.As an architecture photographer, Nicole England found that the shoots she enjoyed the most were the ones where dogs were present – nothing lightens the mood like a nonchalant pup. However imposing the architecture, some doggy hijinks can immediately bring an element of sociability and fun. With this in mind, Nicole set about setting up her Instagram, Resident Dog, and now this book, Resident Dog [Volume Two], which showcases over 25 of the world’s most amazing houses, and the dogs that live there.
Photographing dogs is not always straightforward, because they don’t always cooperate! The result is that these images end up with a looser, more spontaneous style. Just as every home is different, so is every dog. The photographs showcase amazing architecture and capture the personality of the idiosyncratic personality of each canine. Take a wander around the world’s most stunning homes, from Mexico City to Sydney, London, New York and LA, with the home pooch as your tour guide. Each home will feature several photographs, and an interview with the architect or homeowner.
We are truly humbled, and forever grateful that our house and rescue mutt are preserved on the pages of this beautiful book. Order your copy today.
We are looking forward to our next home-tour event for 2018, coming up on Oct 6th. Sadly, this will be the last one for 2018, but stay tuned for more events in 2019.
This upcoming event will be hosted by Fernwood Botanical Garden + Buchanan Preservation Society, both are located in nearby Buchanan Michigan. If you haven’t been to this part of the world – we recommend the visit: the gardens are lovely [we adore the Patrick Dougherty Living sculpture]; and Buchanan is a picture perfect piece of Americana with two current National Register Historic Districts.
