House Beautiful runs a feature package on Monticello, the 1772 Virginia house designed by Thomas Jefferson. "There was method to the decoration [...]," writes Jon Meacham. "For Jefferson, the portraits, busts, statues, and artifacts in the house were not a random collection, but rather what he called 'memorials of those worthies whose remembrance I feel a pride and comfort in consecrating there.'"
