One of my favorite hobbies is touring historic homes. There is something special about hearing the history and seeing it come to life through the furnishings and sometimes the clothing that are on display. In fact, after moving from the West Coast to the East Coast, I was delighted to find so many mansions and estates open for tours.
When I discovered Oheka Castle, which is roughly an hour outside of New York City by train, I knew I had to go visit.
You may have seen Oheka before, as it has been used in USA's "Royal Pains," Lifetime's "Project Runway," the 1941 "Citizen Kane" and even Taylor Swift's "Blank Space" music video.
Yet, what makes this estate so unique is surprisingly not all of that glitz or glamour, as it has seen some exceptional weddings too, but the fact that it's not your ordinary historic home.
You can tour Oheka, but you can also dine, stay or have an event there. In fact, the current owner even calls Oheka his home and often greets the guests at Oheka's restaurant.
Yes, the experience is that personal.
You can sit on the furniture and even take pictures! For anyone that tours historic homes, these are general two golden rules that rarely can be broken.
With a rich history that began in 1914, would later become nearly destroyed and to now being a must-visit site, it is one of those places that you have to experience first-hand to truly appreciate all it has to offer.
There is a Gatsby vibe still within Oheka's walls, but it also feels like a home, which to me, is one of the best aspects of the estate.
Be sure to check out Oheka Castle for more information and be ready to be inspired.

For the record, I do not remember the titles of all the ADEA blogs I’ve written and when they appeared. So I have a bright red three-hole binder to help me keep track of the month, year and headline of each blog.
On Saturday, November 18, 2018, D&G released a post on China’s social media platform, “Weibo” to promote its upcoming runway show in Shanghai on November 21st.
I have been watching domestic goddess, Ina Garten, create mouth-watering delicacies on her cooking show forever. Now, it seems, we are in a new era where shows such as, “The World’s Worst Cook” or “How to Beat So-and-So in X-Minutes” reign supreme. Obviously this type of scheduling is geared to an audience that has no interest in watching a cook in the kitchen who whips up several superb dishes for a memorable lunch or dinner. I only catch The Barefoot Contessa now by accident: early mornings on days I can never remember.
We use Italian lingerie sizing for our bodywear and items tend to run small.
Because of the body-hugging nature of the fabric and our body conscious fit most women prefer to wear our layering tops as under-layers. If you are inclined to wear them on their own we suggest you size up. Please email us or give us a call if you have questions about your sizing. We're happy to help you get it right.
Relaxed fit. Wear alone or over any of our layering tees or camisoles.
