The Hillwood Museum...

If you're in the D.C. area and love French Rococo interiors, you must visit the Hillwood Museum. It's an estate formerly owned by the late heiress and avid art collector Marjorie Merriweather Post. This place is full of treasures, I could spend a whole week there. It's such a feast for the eyes, I have to go back. A couple years ago I went with my mom on a guided tour while I was home and fell in love with Majorie's vast collection of French and Russian decorative art. Just being there made me want to spend my days in a fancy gown sipping tea and admiring Faberge eggs. Alas, I have to work for a living but I can still watch the mini documentary now posted of the Hillwood Museum website. Enjoy!
