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.

Welcome to 2016, a new year for all of us!  In Philadelphia at Rittenhouse Square, Anthropologie runs a store that, incredibly, used to be someone’s home.  Can you imagine having this circle of stained glass in the roof of your home?  I haven’t bought anything there, but we often go just to wallow in the beauty of the space itself and the decorating is gorgeous as well.

May your 2016 be filled with blessings and beauty!
