Ah, the dangers of scheduling before I have the post finished. I meant to include a few details about this dome, which you might be pardoned for believing was in a European church. However, it’s in the Anthropologie store in Rittenhouse Square, Philadelphia. But imagine this in your home! It was in a home.

Anthropologie’s store on Rittenhouse Square was originally the Fell-Van Rensselaer House. Sarah Drexel Fell (yes, of that Drexel Family) was widowed and then married Alexander Van Rensselaer. The house was completed in 1898. The original Tiffany dome and a ceiling with portraits of Italian Dodges, as well as fireplaces and some details remain.

The rest of the store is very elegant as well.

    Wow! What an amazing cupola. Missed this when I was in Philadelphia.

    That looks like something in a cathedral more than something in a home– or a modern store. Wow.

    • A house the size of this one is more like a cathedral than any house I’ve ever been in and of course that older style lends itself to that look. It must have been quite a place!
