johnyunis Le Clos Fiorentina, Cap Ferrat, as done by Hubert de Givenchy, Part 20, Exterior. More uncertainty- I believe this is a closer view of the house that we see in Part 19. Wherever it is, it's lovely. Does anyone have a guess as to the purpose of the stone structure with the dome on top? An old well, perhaps? If you look just to it's right, you will see the tiny potted citrus tree with its limed trunk beside the door, both of which are seen in Part 1. Another photo that I'm not sure where it's from- looks to be by the same photographer- Pascal Chevallier. #garden #summerhouse #hubertdegivenchy #givenchy #18thcentury #leclosfiorentina #capferrat #france #french #johnyunis 3h

magnificententertainments This magnificent Kentian marble-topped pier-table is the only one of four which returned to its original home in the Great Room at Marble Hill, Twickenham (built 1724-9 for Henrietta Howard, later Countess of Suffolk). That it did so is a bit of a miracle as the group had been illegally removed by tenants way back in the 1800s. This one was by chance rediscovered in the 1980s at a hairdressing salon in Australia painted all pink. #Williamkent #furniture #antique #interior #design #peacocklove #gilding #carving #craftsmanship #luckyfind #marblehill #twickenham #englishheritage #piertable #18thcentury #georgian #GeorgeII #georgianengland 9h

by_strings_attached My official sketch for my Charlotte Corday dress! It's a 1790s gown (close to a robe a l'anglaise) based on the painting "Charlotte Corday" by Paul Baudry from 1860. All the planning is up #ontheblog (link in bio) so please check it out!
