an outing

The gentleman and I passed a quiet Labor Day weekend at home, working on odds and ends. Feeling a bit of cabin fever however, we decided to hop in the car on sunday afternoon and drive to Gunston Hall. It was not my first trip. . . but we were both eager to see the progress of recent restorations. And the house did not disappoint. Dressed in fresh paints, damask and gilt, the interior is now a feast for the eyes ~ scarlet reds, sunny yellows, and dramatic verdigris greens. It was just the shot of inspiration we need!

And so now, onward to autumn. . . .

Hope you are well.

Friends on the east coast, be safe in these terrible rains.

Hopping over to see if the verdigris is visible on Gunston's site. You know how I love it, as well as the yellows :)

Ah, the emerald chamber is fabulous! Love the ochre yellow Chinese room, too.

Texted you today. Did not receive a response. Feared you had been washed away. So glad that is not the case. I just love the hallway at Gunston and how it walks right out to the center of the garden and if you keep walking, you fall in the river. Nicely done.
