My daughter and I just returned last evening from a little junket to Charlottesville which is my notion of living in the country - fabulous shopping, restaurants, and lots of Chinoiserie in a bucolic setting. We stayed and dined at the Clifton Inn and it was lovely. We enjoyed a beautiful suite and a ten course dinner. These are Instagrams I took of it. The highlight was shopping on Main Street in Charlottesville - especially the Caspari Design Store, Oyster House Antiques, and lunch at Hamiltons' at First & Main. I was recognized at Caspari - they are followers of Chinoiserie Chic and we had a tour of the stunning store and lots of new items. Then we buzzed down to Lynchburg for shopping at the new J.Crew Clearance Store that one of my interior design clients alerted me to - very fun.
