I was just looking through my photos from our recent trip to Rhode Island, and I came across this quick shot of a building in Providence’s College Hill neighborhood. It’s the historic Fleur-de-Lys Studios at 7 Thomas Street, a Tudor Revival building designed by architects Edmund Willson and Synney Burleigh in 1885. It’s still home to the Providence Art Club, and you can read more about it on the Brown University website.
I liked its relief panels, including this image of a lily, painted in bold red and yellow.

So lovely to find intricate details like that.
Yes, isn’t it? I thought Providence was a really interesting smaller city with many noteworthy details!!
Quite fitting for an Art Club! I love the colors and the details.
I was so happy to learn that it’s been an arts club since it was built! So many historic buildings have lost their original purpose.
