A Virginia Gentleman's Study & A Sale

A few weeks ago I wrote about the extraordinary home of a very creative woman (here and here) Now I'd like to share the photos from her husband's study- an equally fascinating and intriguing space. Entering the room you immediately sense that this is someone who is passionate about history and completely at home surrounded by collections and personal mementos. I don't think it would be possible not to be entertained and informed after spending a day in this room.
Organized abundance - for me it's a very pleasing look.

Cannons standing guard. Notice the stately landscaping at the entry of this home.
Love the red and white shades on these sconces. Hope you enjoyed the peek into this amazing study.

On another note - A Sale:
I was recently contacted by Annie Groer, former Washington Post Home section writer about an upcoming "Get It Gone" parking lot sale at 4912 Del Ray Avenue, Bethesda, MD this Saturday, April 17, from 7 am until noon. (*Rain Date is April 24. For updates go to Capital Consignment)

My husband would go nuts over a study like this. His passion is history and so we are attempting to decorate his surroundings with things he loves. I can't wait to show him this post. Very inspiring.

That view, from that window inside that study is a study in itself. I am always enamored by collections and stories from historians. I would spend hours there sketching and un-earthing little treasures and artifacts.

I am not a military history buff, but I could spend all day poking around in this Gentlemans study......so intriquing and I might learn a few things. Have the best weekend.

A study/library, is truly, my most favorite room in a house! I guess it's my obsession with books! Thank you for always visiting RHS. I really appreciate your kind comments and support. You're the best.
