We know that feeling when you just want winter to end. Take today, for example. Two weeks ago we were wearing flip flops and now we're back to winter coats. It's enough to make you want to take a cruise to a Caribbean island to wait out the real end of the winter.
Or, if you can't afford that vacation, you could at least design a basement that encompasses all of the elements of a cruise but without the perils of water or travel, like this basement photographed by the Indianapolis architect Fran Schroeder. The location of the photograph is unidentified, but likely it belonged to a home in Indianapolis during the late 1940s-50s. Clearly the owner of this room felt much the same way about winter as we do.
If anyone knows the location, please let us know. We'll come over immediately.
