A poetic frame of mind and fresh conceptual thinking are present in almost all of Jefferson's endeavors. Not surprisingly, as both an interior designer, architect and landscape architect, one finds Jefferson's work to be not only beautiful but also inventively intelligent. In this discussion we will explore Jefferson's unique and conceptual approach to interior appointments and decor at Monticello, one of the nation's most cultural and aesthetic treasures.
