Leighton House Museum

Leighton House Museum, Kensington, London. The house was once home to Victorian artist Frederic Leighton who over a period of 30 years expanded the building and filled it with treasures from all over the world. The centrepiece of this work is the Arab Hall, decorated with hundres of Middle Eastern tiles. A fascinating place, tucked down a quiet road by Holland Park.

    Lovely … the macro of the tattered books is especially gorgeous. *Swoon.*

  2. A lovely place seen through excellent photos. I like the one with the green books and the one with the lady, the man near and the wall with all the paintings…good, really good.
