A beautifully interpreted space at James Madison’s Montpelier

As you read this, I am on a jaunt to Orange, Virginia to visit Montpelier, the home of James and Dolley Madison. Over the past several years, the staff there has been conducting exhaustive research to determine how the Madisons decorated the house and using the research to install appropriate finishes, wallpaper, and furnishings. Since you can’t come see it in person with me, read more about it, and all of the other amazing work going on at the site, on their blog.
