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.
True life: I have a hard time keeping track of all a city this size has to offer. I'm also prone to stay in a holding pattern when it comes to restaurants, bars, etc. (old habits die hard). So, in the interest of discovery and making a concerted effort to keep track of the (pinky-swear) cool things to see, eat and do in NYC, I'm enlisting local friends—Sarah, Alex,Roxy and Katie to start—to help map out the city we love using Pinterest's new map feature! These girls know their stuff, and better still, we all live in different neighborhoods so we can truly cover our bases.
If you are remotely interested, you can follow the board here, or simply tuck it away in your bookmarks for a future trip to our fair city. We've got the goods for you, with more being added every day. (I also encourage you to do the same for your city! Wouldn't that be fun? Share in the comments if you do!)
