Winterthur: The Yule Tide Tour part 3 of 3

December 20, 2012  •  2 Comments

Here's the last installment of my series of images from Winterthur Museum and Mansion's Yule Tide tour.  

 

We left off last time in the enormous conservatory room.  As you come back inside and finish up your tour, you enter a couple of cozy rooms with very traditional decorations.  This first one seems all setup for a celebration:

 

A Christmas Toast

 

The woodwork is really amazing in this house, which does a beautiful job reflecting christmas tree lights:

 

Through the doorway to season

 

Sure would be nice to grab one of these old books and chill out by the fire for a while:

 

The Golden Sofa

 

As the tour comes to an end, there's time for one last glimpse of how Christmas must have been for the duPonts back in the olden days...

 

Seasonal Goodies

 

So there you go folks.  I hope if you are local, you make a trip over there and see it for yourself before the season is over.  It's really a sight to see.  Happy holidays to you and yours!

Jason, I second Karen's comments! I also work at Winterthur and I am often in the Yuletide tour. Your photos are fabulous! I love it when someone can help me see these familiar spaces in new ways -- I never noticed how the historic paneling reflects the lights on the trees! Thank you!
