@katulik.k – After period of being ill and being lazy, I decided to explore London again. I had a lovely day discovering the unknown and hidden places of Kensington – visiting 18 Stafford Terrace, Leighton House Museum and finally finishing my London tour in the Design Museum.
This image represents my visit in 18 Stafford Terrace. From 1875, 18 Stafford Terrace was the home of Punch cartoonist Edward Linley Sambourne, his wife Marion, their two children and their live-in servants. The house gives an insight into the personal lives of the Sambourne family, and also provides a unique example of a late Victorian townhouse. With its ‚Aesthetic interior‘ or ‚House Beautiful‘ style, the house advocates the use of foreign or ‚exotic‘ influences in the decoration of the home. This can be seen by the various Japanese, Middle-Eastern and Chinese objects throughout the Sambournes‘ home. After the deaths of Linley and Marion Sambourne, the house was preserved by their descendants and in 1980 it was opened to the public by the Victorian Society. #18staffordterrace #victorian #victorianhouse #exploring #museum #thisislondon #exploringlondon #londonlove #londonvibes #londonlife #history #knowyourhistory #slovacivzahranici #slovacivlondyne #dnescestujem #dnesobjavujem
