Nothing fancy to say here except: wow. Hello, hallway.
Should I ever have the means to do so, I'd love to be owner/caretaker to a historic property. I think it's so important (and that much more interesting) to have a physical context for history, especially through art and architecture. This one just takes the cake... That wallpaper!
The Lindens was built in Danvers, MA and then moved to D.C. at the pleasure of a wealthy antiquing family set on living in a Colonial Age home (how nice for them). The current owners recently redecorated, hence this lovely feature in the newest (Feb) issue of Architectural Digest. Feast your eyes.
