The Mansion of Curiosities

The home of two guys who may have popped into that Bonham's Gentleman's Library Auction the other day. Tim Knox, director of Sir John Soane's Museum and landscape architect Todd Longstaffe-Gowan moved into Malplaquet Mansion in London's East End and filled it to the brim with beauty.  Read more at The Architecturalist, the great blog from which I stole these pics.

I see they repainted the chimney´s surrounds. It was formerly gold and vivid colours. Nice transformation. Fabulous house. Thanks!

It's all deliciously sinister and decadent looking~
and I mean that as a compliment.

Ran across more pictures of their great digs in a Stephen Calloway's- divinely decadent book. Would you be interested in seeing them?

I too love this: Revelry of the nasty bits of childhood and the dreams of Rosamund Purcell. Saw your living room in mag and love the color! Very chic.
