Mosaic Monday - Two Pink Ceilings

Hello

Thanks for joining me today for Mosaic Monday. Do follow the link to find lots of other posts on Judith's Lavender Cottage blog.

My mosaics today are of two beautiful London buildings, both with fascinating pink ceilings.

First of all is Woolwich Town Hall, opened in 1906 which is a Grade II listed building and a rare example of an Edwardian Baroque town hall in London. The magnificent Victoria Hall has a statue of Queen Victoria, stained glass windows by Geoffrey Webb and a black and white marble floor.


Secondly is Kenwood House also in London but on the edge of Hampstead Heath. Although under the umbrella of English Heritage, it is free to visit as it was left to the nation by brewing magnate Edward Guinness, Lord Iveagh in 1927. The house has an extensive art collection, beautiful gardens by Repton and stunning interiors by Robert Adam which were refurbished in 2013. The room featured in my photo is the Great Library. There's a great café here too!

Both buildings have featured in films and TV programmes and offer the visitor loads of photographic ideas and glorious memories.

Thanks so much for visiting and your messages.

Bye for now

  4. I've been lucky to have four trips to the UK, but I haven't been to either of these places.
    Both those ceilings are magnificent and inspiring.
    It just shows it pays to look up!
    Enjoy your week.
