Charleston by Quentin Bell And Virginia Nicholson



This beautiful book features the Charleston House and Gardens in Sussex. The house belonged to Vanessa Bell, the sister of Virginia Woolf . The book was written by Quentin Bell the nephew of Vanessa And Virginia Nicholson, Quentin's Daughter.

The book is filled with pictures of each room, paintings, a blueprint of the house and garden. But the best art is reading Quentin's true life accounts of life in the house. He has stories about happenings in each room of the house. The house also features the Bloomsbury decorative style.

The book was beautiful to flip through and very interesting to read. I would love to visit this house some day. The house is open to tours.

I received this book from the Author or Publisher via Netgalley.com to read and review.
