house calls

I’ve had some great experiences during my internship at the V&A and I’m only hallway through! One highlight has been three external visits to National Trust houses with a short course group. Officially I was assisting to supervise the visits but really I was enjoying every talk and tour as well as all the history of the houses and the areas around them. The group we had was pretty fun too, a great bunch of people.

Goldfinger’s desk in what was intended to be an art studio for his wife but she never used it because they had three kids

The strangest chimney leaning on a house where Lee Miller lived
I always like to make a cat friend

Fenton House, Hampstead

You can see why I love visiting Hampstead
