A day of delicious museums

So I took some time off work and went in search of inspiration. First stop was the Geffrye Museum of the English Interior, an interesting museum with period rooms and a fantastic online catalogue: Geffrye's online textile sample catalogue


1780 replica wallpaper from the 1970's Parlour Room             Sample from the online collection Manchester 1887 - 1894
Next- on to the gorgeous Leighton House Museum - one of the most extraordinary places i've found in London! About Leighton House Museum. I couldn't stop drawing (to follow), but nothing could could a candle to the amazing collection of tiles, objects and paintings.

Finally back to the V&A ceramics department, and sigh, just to admire the wonderful objects. Here are just a few that took my fancy this time around.


Not to forget India and the Orient..
