Video of the Week: Whimsical European-Inspired Marvel in Waterford, Virginia
Featuring curated videos from the most sought-after destinations the world over, discover this week’s Video of the Week.
The “Pink House” is a Waterford landmark that has been completely transformed into an architectural masterpiece inspired by the grand country homes of Europe.
Having variously served as a tavern, apothecary, and bed and breakfast, it has been totally reimagined with every surface and detail artfully recast for modern luxury and comfort. From hand-colored Venetian plaster to closet doors from Provence, inlaid mosaics from Montepulciano to French mahogany window casings, the Pink House is both a work of fine craftsmanship and a collection of deftly placed materials and imports.
With an emphasis befitting the gourmand lifestyle, the kitchen comprises an entire new wing with cathedral ceilings, commercial appliances and 400 year old terra cotta brick floors. The sink is hammered copper and a second is hewn from a limestone block fit with its own custom cart.
The history of the Pink House is surely to be admired today and to be a muse for visionaries for another 200 years.
