I'm not at all sure I like this minimalist style! I do like a bit of decoration.

Much to like about this montage, Bill...your upstairs, I suppose?
Bill Phillips: I wish! Apparently most children who visit leave nagging their fathers to build them a tented bedroom!

I would like to more about this place. Very interesting.
Bill Phillips: Kingston Lacy is a very fine house cared for by the National Trust. The tented bedrooms are, i think the only remaining examples in this country of a syle made fashionable in the 1830s by The Empress Josephine in France

This is surely a National Trust manor house, finely looked after, filled with a plethora of details, the wallpapers are impressive, it looks a bit Victorian.
Bill Phillips: It is indeed. The tented bedrooms were a fashion in the 1830s begun by the Empress Josephine I think.

A fine selection of photographs for which you are to be roundly congratulated
Bill Phillips: I am obliged to you O great Tiffo
What an interesting place, I note the comment about the tented bedrooms, never heard of such a thing before, what a strange fashion idea perhaps Josephine was into Bedouin living but still fancied her creature comforts.
Bill Phillips: It was all the rage and then disappeared but kept here. I loved it!
This pleasantly reminds me of our visit to Kingston Lucy last September, more of which anon. I like the collage and we were intrigued by those very well appointed staff bedrooms at the top of the house you have shown bits of here.
Bill Phillips: As I recall they were used by bachelor guests Brian
Big on stripes weren't they! I like the rug.The wooden floor is amazing.
Bill Phillips: You can bet that didn't come from B&Q

I've been to Kingston lacy several times but never been inside. Can't say I'm keen on the stripey wallpaper but I do like the wooden floor.
Bill Phillips: Supposed to be a tent. Height of fashion in the 1830s. I confess I loved it!!
Very nice collage Bill. This must be quite a pleasant place to visit!
Very good collage...
I don't think I could last five minutes in a house with this sort of decor
