My recent tour and what I wore! The house above was built in 1938 by Walter Gropius who was the founder of the Bauhaus school of design in Germany and who eventually became a professor of architecture at Harvard University.
I really enjoy touring various historic homes, many of which have very opulent interiors. Places that are visually impressive, but couldn’t really envision myself living in any of them. But when I stepped into the Gropius House I immediately wished I could stay there forever!
So if you love mid century modern design as much as I do, then check out my other post to read more about Gropius House and see lots more pix of this marvelous mid century home.
The day I decided to visit, it was pretty hot out. So I chose a nice summery lightweight cotton authentic 1950s dress that would be comfortable in case the home had no A/C. When Andrew and I arrived we found out we had some time to spare before the next tour started. Turns out this house is right down the road from Walden Pond. You know, Henry David Thoreau’s hangout. So we were able to fit in a walk in the woods before the tour.
Pintuck pleats on the bodice with tiny looped trim and a bow accent neckline. Little details like these are one of the reasons I love vintage clothing.
I live in Florida most of the year and never thought my hair could get any frizzier than it does down there. But I was so wrong! I think the humidity that day was around 1000%. At least that’s how it felt.
