Hope Lodge Fort Washington PA

There is a magnificent old historic home in our town that we finally made it to on Sunday. It was built in the 1740s and is full of history and amazing details.

The gardens:

And the front of the home.

This shade of yellow was magnificent. The lighting wasn't the greatest, so I apologize for that. It just means you should go see it in person.

And this blue! Can you believe that these yellow and blue colors are historically accurate? They were not afraid of color or trim in the 1800s.

Delft pottery tiles.
 A subsequent owner travelled to the Delft factory to search through old boxes of discontinued tiles to find exact matches to replace some missing and broken tiles. You can see which ones look newer and crisper, compared to the originals.

These rugs are incredible.

The master bedroom with a killer wig.

Here's the website if you want to check it out in person. It's just north of Philadelphia, PA.
