Styles) will be featured in 2013. Six homes will open their doors for the tour including a Victorian, a remodeled 60’s Ranch, a Frank Lloyd Wright inspired home with a modern West Coast vibe, and two homes featuring collections of Americana and European antiques respectively.
“We’re confident House Walk guests will come away from the day with renewed excitement and unique ideas for their own homes,” said Vicki Lezon, Western Springs House Walk Event Co-Chair. “Our goal is to generate funds for the Historical Society, while also ensuring an afternoon of inspiration for those in attendance.”
