West Wycombe Park

I don’t think it’s any secret that I love British novels and period dramas, especially the works of Jane Austen. My favorite movie of all time, Austenland, pokes some gentle fun at the stereotypes of Austen’s work in the midst of some beautiful comedy and romance. It doesn’t take itself too seriously, and I appreciate that. If I’m ever having a bad day, I’ll pop that movie into the DVD player, relax in the familiar world, and come away feeling a little lighter every time.

This house, West Wycombe Park, was featured in Austenland and in a bunch of other films and television shows like Doctor Thorne, Cranford, Downton Abbey, Little Dorrit, and The Importance of Being Earnest, among many, many others. After enjoying the house in so many different stories, I thought I ought to pay homage to it and its beautiful yellow exterior. 🙂

I used this beautiful photo as a reference.
