13 years I have been in London, and never have visited the Geffrye Museum before, that is bad!! considering it is a bus ride away from home, free to visit and about a subject I adore, interiors. Saturday, was a sunny glorious day in London, so decided to venture to East London to discover a bit more about this area and the Museum. The venue is the right size, have gorgeous gardens, entrance, and rooms exploring each period of the English Middle Class houses and their decorations, different styles, ways of living etc...

The beginning of the Interiors books and magazines, so funny to discover this little book and how everything started...

I have actually seems cameos such as these, in an antique fair outside London, did not have enough money to get them at the time...
Great examples of William Morris patterns and fabrics...Love this pink lamp and sofa!
Coffee tables form different periods, Art Deco and Mid Century...I totally recommend a visit to the Museum, and near by areas of Columbia Road, Brick Lane, etc...better avoid Sundays, it is mad around there!

  1. Popping along after seeing you featured by Holly on Decor8! I love your post on the Geffrye Museum, I actually wandered past while in London a couple of weekends ago but had no idea it was free to enter - it's firmly on the 'to visit' list for the next time I'm down there!

    Looking forward to reading and enjoying more of your posts over a cup of tea!
