And so the London saga continues… the next setting: Kenwood House. Located in Hampstead Heath, this Georgian abode that was home to William Murray, First Earl of Mansfield according to The Telegraph, is an enchanting estate.
Each room is filled with life-like portraits of bygone aristocrats and royals in all their historic finery. But the main draw for this bookloving fashion blogger was the powder pink and baby blue library designed by Scottish architect, Robert Adam, according to the Telegraph. Stepping inside this literary labrynth, I was elated when beholding the library’s grecian columns and fresco-covered ceilings lined with detailed crown molding.
The pastel arhitecture of the building is complemented with wine-colored middle eastern carpets and bright red velvet seats for the 18th century reader who had the opportunity to curl up with one of those breathtaking leather-bound tomes with gold-edged pages.
Just looking at the books on their shelves produced a smile across my ruby-colored lips. I could only imagine the utmost wonder I would feel if could just reach for one of those novels and sit down on a red sofa, cross my legs in my same-hued trousers and travel worlds without moving; The only reminder of reality would be the laces of my corset white top’s sleeves gently touching the book as I turned to the next page…
When my friend and I left Kenwood, I would have been more sad to part with the estate with each step in my open toe polka-dot heels, but thankfully we went to another magical world: the “Harry Potter and the Cursed” play on the West End. Oh, and a trip between the show to the Minilima Harry Potter pop-up museum and Indian food while meeting up with one of my room mates from college. Sometimes you must wake from a daydream to enter a new daydream.
