It was Nic and J.B. from Thunderwing Press that told us that we couldn’t leave Garrison without making a quick stop at Manitoga, the designer Russel Wright’s home.

I’m not going to go over Russel Wright’s whole story, but what I loved about his house was the harmony he created with nature way before it was in style to do so.

He took down the wall between the interior and exterior. He installed green roofs so that the house would blend in totally with the landscape. He was so meticulous that he even designed the rocks around his house to create a perfect waterfall. For him, the “Moss Room” (a space dedicated to letting the moss grow perfectly) was a completely separate part of the house itself.

Of course, the house has grown older, but I found it so inspiring that I wanted to share some photos with you.
