The National Design Museum...

I ended up having the day off! It was a rather rainy day off, but nonetheless quite enjoyable. After brunch at Moto, Chris, a friend, William and I headed to the Cooper-Hewitt National Design Museum. We originally wanted to go to the Whitney, but thought that going to the opening weekend of the biennial would be sort of silly and crowded. Instead we delved into the world of Rococo and design.

One of my favorite things at the museum was apart of the exhibition of works from the permanent collection called, A Floral Fantasy in an Old English Garden. It was masterfully illustrated and very whimsical. I also really dug the English mourning jewelry made of human hair.
