An exhaustive examination would, I believe, find that Silsbee had more influence on FLW than Sullivan did.
This is truly a beautiful house inside, Victorian though it may be.
Upstairs in the master bedroom, we have this description:
"The master bedroom fireplace is the work of Drummond. Originally it closely resembled the living room fireplace, Vijay Palani said, but Drummond was
brought in to give it a then-fashionable Prairie Style look as he made other changes to the master bedroom and sitting room. He dropped the mantel and
made a rectilinear composition punctuated with globe lights. The original brick fireplace designed by Silsbee is probably still there behind the redo, she said."
Also, here is a very nice blog post about the home.
