Week 42 -34. OMG

On a visit to Strawberry Hill House, I was knocked back by the colours on the walls. The House is designed in the Gothic Style and the restorers have made the original paints in the Gothic colours and they are stunning. This room has the real ‘Wow’ factor as you enter it. They had beautiful rich blues, purples and greens. All designed and rebuilt to Howard Walpole’s specification as he wanted it by the River Thames and this was the only property he could find. The present restoration cost £10 million.

  3. Wow! At first glance I thought it might be a room from St. Catherine’s palace in St. Petersburg which is also very over the top. Couldn’t live there, though……way too much to dust!
