The Gamble House

On Sunday we took a trip up to Old Town Pasadena and toured the iconic Gamble House, famous for its attention to detail in the arts and crafts movement in the early 1900s. Their website can be found here.

The house was named after the original owners of the home: David and Mary Gamble (of the Procter and Gamble fortune).

Although the architects had never traveled to Asia, the home is filled with asian touches, including this lantern.
