a mid century home

Remember here I shared our visit to the late Sir Frederick Gibberd's garden? Well I promised then to share some images from inside the house. It's a mid century delight; marble floors, high ceilings, stained glass, some great chairs (I couldn't find out the maker), and other furniture, stunning views of the garden, a fun collection of Staffordshire dogs (and a couple of cats). It's all fairly minimalist though a book of images taken of the house before Sir and Lady Gibberd's possessions and collection of art were sold off tells a different story, it was once alive with clutter and colour!
