Visiting Olana

This past weekend we had a house full of guests upstate and took them all to see the Hudson Valley home of the late Artist, Frederic Church, called Olana. The Moorish architecture and the attention to detail is stunning. I only have exterior photos, but the website www.olana.org has plenty of information and photos.
PS for those of you with children, it was a hit for all ages. 
The attention to detail was amazing, just look at that roof!

Each doorway had a different tile motif.

The tiles were a work of art in themselves. 

Moorish and Persian architecture in abundance.

Gorgeous - I need to check out the site. The bricks and the tiles are definitely art pieces themselves.
