Inspired to see Georgetown

I recently picked up a copy of the July/August issue of Victoria and saw an inspiring article about Georgetown in Washington, D.C. We just visited Georgetown this past March and I just loved it!!! We didn't have enough time to explore but my husband and I have it on our radar for our next visit. I am suppose to return to D.C. again in the fall but we will see.

The first page of the article talked about a wonderful interior design store called John Rosselli & Associates. Now I do follow him on Instagram but I did not realize that he had a location in Georgetown. I definitely want to visit this store.

The next place that was mentioned was Ann Hand. Now this designer is known for her distinctive patriotically themed jewelry. Her Liberty Eagle pins have been worn by very prominent women such as some of our First Ladies. 

Doesn't her shop look lovely?

Third on the list was Dumbarton Oaks. This was a home purchased by Mildred and Robert Woods in the 1920's. Mildred worked with a renowned landscape architect for over a thirty-year period to turn the neglected grounds into a beautiful garden. The article said that 16 acres were given to Harvard University in 1940. The Dumbarton Oaks Museum houses a collection of art and artifacts and a beautiful garden. I will definitely be adding this to my list.

Love the wisteria!

Such a beautiful building.

The last place on the list to visit in Georgetown was a bed and breakfast called the Swann House. The article said that this was located in the Dupont Circle area of Georgetown. This 1883 building has 12 foot ceilings, a dozen rooms and suites and a delicious breakfast with oven baked french toast and homemade granola. Sounds wonderful!!!

I love it when I find information on places that I have been and realize that there are new places to discover. I hope that we will be traveling to D.C. in the fall. We will undoubtedly been adding a few of these to our list. 

If you wish to read the original article, pick up a copy of Victoria July/August 2018 issue.
