Hardwick Hall-3

 

The "living room" of the Hall, used by Evelyn, Dowager Duchess of Devonshire.  I imagine that most of the Hall was unused when she was resident, but it looks as though this room could be made quite cosy.

Ce doit être agréable de s'installer près de la cheminée.
Tom Wilson: C'est vrai, Martine!
A very "hunting lodge" feel to this room.
Tom Wilson: Yes, the deer above the fireplace give that effect.

My eyes are drawn to the frieze with ancient goings on illustrated. This is all very agreeable..
Tom Wilson: Yes, I think they are tapestries.

Tom Wilson: Ha! smile Couldn't afford anything like this, Chad!

I remember there being loads of tapestries hanging all over the house.

I could get comfortable here
