Geffrye Museum: The Museum of the Home (London): the life of the middle class

The Geffrey Museum seeks to tell the history of the home through providing room sets (mainly the living room) of middle class homes through the ages, from about 1600 to the present day.

Tudor?

William & Mary?
Georgian

 The museum also has exhibitions, and I was interested in the japanning.

 

 

Regency?
Regency on steroids?
Victorian

Which do you like best?

    And they have a jolly good cafe in a very pretty setting, so enjoy lunch or coffee while you’re there.

      The Regency was too plain and the Regency on Steroids was too cluttered, but better than the Victorian. So I suppose we need to ask where did these designs come from – contemporary paintings?
