The Miller House

We felt that this home was so amazing, we we needed to share it's historic and breathtaking past. The J. Irwin Miller house was designed in 1957 by Eero Saarinen and in 2000, made a National Landmark for it's ahead of it's time, modern layout and interior design. This treasured home was inspired by the spacious, clean line look of Japanese architecture and the modernistic views of Mies van der Rohe. There are so many creative elements and details that make this home what it is. What really caught our attention was the blend of colors and textiles that went into the decor of this landmark. "The conversation pit" encompasses the decor throughout the house with it's mix and matching of different textures, colors, and patterns. Alexander Girard was the interior designer, someone we feel like complimented and brought out more of the modern, yet classic clean look that the home was designed to be, (and someone we will be googling to see his other works!) We are so excited that this home is open to the public for tours and up close looks at the touches that make it what it is. Anyone want to come with us to Columbus to view this amazing space?!
