Burton Agnes Hall

 

Another house, another dining room.  Rather more restrained than the clutter at Cliffe Castle.

An astonishment of red!
Tom Wilson: Rather too hot a colour for a dining room, to my mind.
The chandelier is rather impressive!
Tom Wilson: One of several in the house.

very extravagant display of wealth
Tom Wilson: "The estate has been in the hands of the same family since Roger de Stuteville first built a manor house on the site in 1173." - so they've had time to amass the money!
Jolies couleurs pour cet intérieur.
Tom Wilson: Oui mais un peu trop "chaud" pour moi.

Best room in the house (so far), Tom.
Tom Wilson: I don't think I have many more, Ray - so this is probably it!

This is definitely more to my taste Tom
Tom Wilson: A handsome room, definitely.
It's hard to imagine a rug that big, Tom!
Tom Wilson: Must have cost a fortune!
This is such a wonderful place to see, Tom. I have to confess that I would get claustrophobic here if it was my living room... too much to dust here.
Tom Wilson: Well, of course, if you could afford this you could afford the servants to do the dusting!

Yes - a nice sense of space
Tom Wilson: Yes, a lovely room.

This is much more comfortable in my view Tom.
Tom Wilson: Well, it is a "living" house rather than a museum.

Maybe if they have done the walls in a light beige ... The red reflects of everything.
Tom Wilson: Does look rather "hot"
But not a lot more restrained.
Tom Wilson: I guess things tend to pile up if you've occupied the house since it was built more than 400 years ago smile
It would be a lovely room to enjoy a meal in, I reckon with another table we could get a large compliment of Shutterchancers in there for lunch.
Tom Wilson: I think you are right there, Brian!
brilliant treatment here, Tom. you really coaxed out much splendour in this shot
Tom Wilson: Thanks, Ayush.
