The first interior room you walk into seems like you are outside. The four walls are actual facades taken from buildings.
Next we took an elevator up several floors to a room filled with three garden themed trees. The smell of the blooming paperwhites was wonderful!
A peony tree, a spring bulb tree and a fairy tree: all three things that Winterthur's gardens are known for.
Next was a formal sitting room complete with
desserts and punch set out for guests of the 1938 wedding celebration.
This stunning tree was decorated entirely with dried flowers.
We moved on to an Asian themed room with wall paper hand painted in 1775 (I kid you not, I asked the tour guide to repeat himself.).
And then a music/entertaining room with a spiral staircase to die for.
Onto a garden room set up with a bar and buffet.
This would be my favorite room if I lived here (and not just because there is a bar here:).
Another dining room for the wedding guests.
And a dining room for the du Pont family.
I had to ask what those two things were on the buffet table... knife urns filled with silver knives with ivory handles. The handles were painted to look like jade (why not get jade handled knives if you're that rich). The painting was by Benjamin West and depicts the American signers of Treaty of Paris, the British signers refused to sit for the painting.
An azalea themed tree. In the spring the gardens are filled with hundreds of blooming azaleas.
The last tree on the tour was a 1950's themed tree complete with bubble lights and vintage toys.
