Ceiling detail in Robert Adam’s Long Gallery at Syon House, the Duke of Northumberland’s London home. #ceiling #robertadam #adam #adamstyle #longgallery #syonhouse #syonpark #syon #dukeofnorthumberland #percy #london #roundel #neoclassical #putti #swags.

The home of 17th century beauty Dido Belle - her mother was a Jamaican woman. Her father was a Lord. After he died in the Caribbean her uncle brought Dido back to London and brought her up. Her family loved her, but she still faced prejudice outside due to her colour. It’s a particularly poignant story now the Duchess of Sussex is expecting. #didoelizabethbelle #blackbritain #hampstead #statelyhome #classicdecor #robertadam #chinoiserie

Making the replica of a Chippendale table, using original techniques and original colours / wood dyes. Dying / staining white holly and pear wood in red, using red wood extract. Red wood (pernambuco) is boiled to extract the red dye, before leaving the white holly veneer in the red dye solution. Pernambuco tree is protected but we were lucky to save every shaves and every off cuts over the last twenty years. No waste, you never know if the shaves will be useful one day. It takes weeks for the dye to penetrate the saw cut veneer. Next week, dyeing red wood and pink wood using #cochineal insect, supplied by @canaturex #chippendale #thomaschippendale #robertadam #marquetry #inlay #decorativearts #dye #colour #table #replica #furniture #veneer #alum #red stain #table #cabinetmaking #holly #pear #pearwood #pernambuco

Making the replica of a Chippendale table, using original techniques and original colours / wood dyes. Dying / staining white holly using traditional indigo carmine. First alum as a mordant, followed by yellow wood fustic and eventually add blue indigo carmine. It takes weeks for the dye to penetrate the saw cut veneer . #chippendale #thomaschippendale #robertadam #marquetry #inlay #decorativearts #dye #colour #table #replica #furniture #veneer #indigo #indigocarmine #alum #fustic #yellow #blue #green #stain #table #cabinetmaking

Classic @hesavill solid brass lover's knot design Ring Handle in Antique Brass finish. Made in England from the finest materials. Based on an original pattern.
.
.
The association of knots with the symbolism of love, friendship and affection dates back to antiquity. Because of this, no single knot can be determined to be the true "true love knot".
.
.
Solomon's knot (Latin: sigillum Salomonis, literally 'Solomon's seal') is the most common name for a traditional decorative motif used since ancient times, and found in many cultures. Despite the name, it is classified as a link, and is not a true knot according to the definitions of mathematical knot theory. .

I wonder if shadows like these were ever created historically in the house 🤔Uplighter lamps didn’t exist then but perhaps when lit with lots of candles this might have happened? Either way, it looks pretty. I am lucky to live and work where I do.
