We stayed downtown right next to the arch and every morning we could look out our window to see the massive structure towering above the river.
A common trend among the buildings in the city was the use of the arch in the architecture. Arched windows add a graceful element to an otherwise angular house.
Arched doorways served as grand entrances in the hotel.
One afternoon, we walked through a park in the middle of downtown where a number of unique sculptures and water features were on display. I couldn't resist posing with the big white bunny!
Even cooler was the light fixtures! That's right, they are made of old milk cans, painted in vibrant colors. This is my next project.
When we travel, we try to only eat and shop in local places unique to that city. We stayed true to that goal while in St Louis and one night after dinner in LaFayette Square we stumbled upon what I now refer to as "our future home". I love the idea of brownstones in the park, the ease of living within walking distance to hip hangouts and this home on Park Ave had it all!
Hubs and I walked for awhile just taking in the features of each house and making a list of pros and cons to moving there. I spouted off all the ways I would decorate them and how each room would be used. While we will remain in Lexington for the foreseeable future, maybe one day I'll get my Park Ave house.
