The Wallace Collection: London’s Most Beautiful Time Capsule
Follow me into London’s most beautiful time capsule. Lesser known than some of London’s museums, here you can wander the rooms and halls almost completely alone.
Here you’ll find room after room of 18th century paintings, old masters, sculptures, antique furniture and oddities.
This is one of my favorite portraits in the collection. I just love it against a backdrop of soft blue grays.
I just adore the silk wall coverings and the elaborate curtains, don’t you?
Here you can truly take your time, get up close with the art, and if you’re so inclined inspect every brush stroke.
I try to imagine the scenes that unfolded in here over the years.
How this chandelier must have looked with real candles flickering, setting the crystals alight!
Every corner hides some new secret. This handsome chap even lurches below one of the staircases.
And when you’ve had your fill of art for the day, head into the courtyard of the houses, for a pick me up cup of tea or coffee.
It’s a marvelous shade of pink. The glass ceiling that covers the yard even keeps the London rain at bay.
