Fun facts

“The Chiles house has 21 exterior doors… There are shopping opportunities for jewelry by designer Tamra Novak (Camp Bowie Mercantile) and Kim Whitehead’s pen-and-ink drawings of shoes and hats in Fran Chiles’ closet.”

Some of the delights are in the details

“Look for witty and telling details such as the bronze pharaoh door pulls; a hidden outdoor kitchen; the changing patterns of parquet; a Lucite tissue box transformed into a vase in Fran Chiles’ closet by Tamra Novak…”
