Interior Love // The Wallace Collection
For someone with a pretty minimalistic style and aesthetic, I get pretty excited about colorful and overly ornate interiors. After seeing just a couple of photos of this museum, The Wallace Collection went straight on my list of places to visit. Set in a historic townhouse, this donation-based museum holds a super impressive collection of 18th century French paintings, furniture, porcelain and sculptures, and art from as early as the 15th century.
I could have spent the entire day here—there was so much to see and it was all so beautiful—but with a kid who gets bored way too easily, I was only able to do a quick hour or so walk through (definitely enough time to get a good feel for the place). While Matt kept Margot busy, I was able to walk from room to room, snapping quick photos along the way. I unfortunately wasn't able to check out their courtyard where visitors can stop by for a bite to eat or a cup of tea, but from what I did see, the French-style brasserie was filled with natural light and trees, had pretty pink walls and seemed highly photographable...it often serves as a venue for wedding receptions. I'll be sure to make time for a visit the next time I'm here—and there will definitely be a next time.
