Tickets have just gone on sale to visit the seminal Frey House II during Modernism Week Fall Preview, but be advised that these tours tend to sell out very quickly due to the limited capacity.  Thankfully, Palm Springs Style recently posted a great feature on the Frey House that delves into its history and offers readers a new perspective on the house through the eyes of photographer Bethany Nauert.  If you’re lucky enough to snag ticket to see the house, you’ll share in our wonder.

Here’s a recap of some of our favorite shots.
