Tryon Farm is an architecturally diverse conservation community located about an hour outside of Chicago. Three quarters of the community’s 170 acres remain undeveloped. The landscape is comprised of woods, restored meadows, and wetlands. The homes range in style from contemporary to modern to traditional and somehow the varied designs blend seamlessly in this beautiful, natural setting.
Etsy, the popular new site used by artists and crafters, is also a gem for vintage finds such as furniture and accessories. The prices on Etsy are usually quite reasonable — especially compared to shops specializing in vintage and antique furniture — and the treasures are endless and unique.
