The Arts in Doylestown PA

If you leave your Doylestown apartments and drive around you cannot miss this building because, well, it’s a castle!  The Mercer Museum and the Fonthill Museum are creations of Henry C. Mercer (1856-1930) and his creative vision is kept intact by The Bucks County Historical Society.  At the museum you can view collections from American daily life preserved with great care, ranging from hand tools to horse-drawn carriages.  The six-story concrete castle was erected by Mercer in 1916. Each level of rooms houses its own unique perspective of exhibits, with small alcoves for small exhibits all arranged according to Mercer’s illuminating classifications such as: healing arts, tinsmithing, dairying, illumination, etc.  Visitors will view objects in a new way. Before heading back to your Doylestown apartment, be sure to check out the Fonthill, Henry C. Mercer’s home that was built in 1910 which houses Mercer’s famed Moravian tiles produced during the American Arts & Crafts Movement.  The Mercer Museum is located at 84 Pine Street in Doylestown, Pa.Come to Me All Ye that Are Heavy Laden, oil on canvas, William Schwartz The Michener Art Museum has been called the Art and Soul of Bucks County, Pa.  When venturing out of your Doylestown apartment to view some art be sure to visit this museum located on South Pine Street.  This museum offers exhibits, events and programs for all ages, as well as creative art classes for families and children.  A museum shop is featured and volunteer opportunities are available.  Check out their website for more information.

Romantic Room Design

With Valentine’s Day approaching, I’ve got the bug to find romance in decor…and some ideas can easily be incorporated into your Doylestown apartment.  Finding an antique mirror like this one for the bedroom adds instant romance…

Taking some romance ideas from this living room and adding them to your Doylestown apartment space can be easily done. A soft white sofa with changeable cover and toss pillows and candlesticks on the coffee table add romance. Another mirror, over fireplace, adds interest.

Instant romance: A canopy bed, soft shades of rose, creative patterns, a crystal chandelier, and gilded frames.  Consider some of these ideas when decorating your Doylestown apartment.

We cannot forget dining in your Doylestown apartment. Soft throws over chairs and double table cloths add instant grace and flow. The peachy tones we think are, well…just peachy.

We can’t forget kitchens!  Is there such a thing as a romantic kitchen? Well, this one suits me.  Adding warm tones to your Doylestown apartment kitchen can bring some romance to an otherwise utility area. Adding warm-colored vases or canisters are a nice touch to counters.
