Karen Kalish knew she wanted to buy her house the moment she saw it in 2001. Now the home, built in 1910 and inspired by the 1904 St. Louis World’s Fair Missouri Building, is filled with artwork, colorful walls and stories. Kalish has painted every wall in her house a different color. Each of the many art pieces found throughout the home are accompanied by name plates identifying the artists.
