Coonley House in Riverside, Ill.

One of Frank Lloyd Wright's best examples of prairie-style architecture, the Avery Coonley House was built from 1908-1912. The five-bedroom, five-bathroom home has been fully restored to its original beauty but updated for today's living. There's a certain appreciation for the architectural details, including the gorgeous Craftsman-style windows. The large reflecting pool adds a unique element to the design.

Foyer

Staying true to the Craftsman style, the foyer features warm wood furnishings and wonderful architectural details, like the trio of windows above the console table. Reddish-brown tile is grounded by an area rug that adds color and interest to the space.

Living Room

Wood-framed windows and furnishings bring exquisite Craftsman style to the living room. Large, graphic area rugs ground the tile floor and add visual interest to the straight-forward, masculine design.

Hallway

Leading the way to the second floor living area, a narrow hallway includes a low, built-in bookcase on one side to display art, books and personal treasures. The real show-stopper, though, is the vaulted ceiling with Craftsman-style skylights to match the overall design of the space.
