New stuff very often.

Pasadena loves its craftsman homes, probably this one best of all. It was designed outside and inside by Charles and Henry Greene. Charles Greene, I read, wanted to be a watercolor painter, and was disappointed when his father pushed him into architecture. Parents often know best. You can take a tour of the Gamble House and look at some of the most beautiful woodwork ever and hear endlessly about lifting cloud motifs. You can wander freely about the grounds.
