Welcome to Rapidan Farm an 18 thousand acre estate and agricultural property located in Culpeper Virginia
Balancing old world style with new day trends was fun and fast as we had only one week to work our magic!
A pair of young magnolias set in tall urns created a nice welcome to the front doors.
Flowers and circular table welcome buyers to this beautiful home.
My first introduction to Rapidan left me with images of many men working feverishly painting and repairing the plaster of this room. Pleasantly surprised a few weeks later we were able to enjoy staging this long room into two sitting areas. An oriental screen suggested faraway lands once traveled and palms softened the four corners.
The oval walls were beautiful and begged for a stately table. I created an enormous hydrangea floral arrangement balanced in a mercury glass taurine. Sometimes all you need are hydrangeas to invoke the appearance of grace and elegance.
While we didn’t change anything by the pool area I could surely see Humphry Boggart under the cabana smoking a cigar and swirling a scotch…or is it Charlton Hesston swimming laps?
Tennis anyone? Or…did someone plant the corn yet? This property yields the greatest amount of corn for alcohol in all of Virginia.
