Reviews

  • Houghton Hall: Portrait of an English Country House tells the story of the structure and its inhabitants through displays that convey key architectural spaces, such as the impressive double-height Stone Hall of marble, stucco and silver limestone; the grand state Saloon, upholstered in red velvet; and the more restrained wood-paneled library, which served as Walpole’s office away from London. Kent’s architectural drawings, also on view, will reveal the geneses of these interiors, which were inspired by both Renaissance architect Andrea Palladio and the style of Baroque-era Rome.” –The Style Saloniste

    “Houghton Hall, where everything is beautifully of one style, challenges the modern idea that eclecticism is the way to go with décor. Houghton is an increasingly rare reminder that unforgettable dwellings are often the result of singular focus.” –Wall Street Journal
