What would I do?

Jackson Pollock, "Lavender Mist", 1950

Check out my "guest appearance" on Style Court today...happy reading.

I loved your choices. How amazing would it be if the Obamas could borrow a Rothko???

Have you ever been to the Rothko 'chapel' in the Tate Modern? A full series of his paintings are in their own room, and it is an amazing place to be.

I have also been to the Rothko chapel in Houston, which didn't quite have the same impact on me as the room at the Tate Modern.

I haven't...I would love to take a special trip to the Tate just to see the Rothko's. He has always been one of my absolute favorites ever since my dad hung a poster of his work in our home when I was young.

I cannot even imagine having access to all of that art! What a treat!

We had posters of Calder, Matisse, and Lichtenstein in my house. And, I must admit, I get a Rothko calendar for myself every year! If I were a White House resident, my first stop would be the museums to borrow some paintings for my new place!

Now is the time to go to is cheaper than it has been for years. The exchange rate is good, flights are well priced, there are lots of deals on hotels. Everything is so much easier in the off season. If you decide to go, email me if you want any food/lodging/transport recommendations (I go to London every year).

I definitely will do... my husband and I were actually talking about the possibility last night with the exchange rate getting better and better daily. I haven't been to London since I was a child. I would love to go back and definitely want ALL of your suggestions!!
