we visited his home "monticello" last sunday and the tour was BEYOND amazing. .....charlottesville is a beautiful place to visit anyway, but seeing jefferson's house, his masterpiece of a home......AMAZING!
not only did he design all the window treatments, but he shopped for all the fabrics in paris-LOVE YOU TOM!!
and his house is full of angles-i'm an angle girl so this was fun. octagons everywhere and skylights too. a self taught architect, jefferson's creations in charlottesville (which also include the university of virginia) are a treat to see!! what an impression this day has made on us!!
a bed built into the wall-SOOOOOO cool. what an innovative idea!
love this life size satue of thomas jefferson....he was 6"2"...a giant for back then!
it was a great day!
MY NEW DESIGN ICON: THOMAS JEFFERSON!!
