I was recently in Asheville, North Carolina, and had the opportunity of seeing the Biltmore Estate. My mom and I, being the architectural and interior design lovers that we are, were on cloud 9 the entire day being able to soak in the beauty that fills the entire home. We toured the house twice, and most likely would have gone a third time had they not locked the doors. There's just so much to admire, that I don't think it's possible to ever truly see it all. Sadly, I was not allowed to take photos inside the house, but I promise you, each and every room is just as breathtaking as the exterior. The intricate craftsmanship that has been placed into every single detail, no matter how big or small, is absolutely incredible. I've always been told how beautiful the estate is, and I've even seen pictures, but the reality of how majestic the mansion actually is doesn't truly resonate until you're standing right in front of it, viewing it with your own two eyes. The Biltmore is, in every essence, a magical place. All I have to say is, Cornelia Vanderbilt was one lucky girl to have grown up in such a home.
