Ground floor- The dining room, the morning room and the hall.
The Morning Room is where Marion, Sambourne’s wife carried out her domestic duties. One of them was letter writing, emphasised by the letters spread out next to her. The mannequin wears a Vivienne Westwood dress over the Hussein Chalayan Airmail Dress (1991) with a feathered head wrap. There is a 2010 MoutonCollet pure white riding hat made with real feathers and deer antlers on the mantle piece. This particular piece was worn by Lady Gaga.
The hall. On Friday I discovered these gross dead birds pressed between frames near the front door. Apparently this was commonly done in this era alongside hunting. My friend Jacqualine loved them. From the 2nd picture you can see the densely decorated wall and the real antlers over the mirror. The stairwell is also important as it showcases some of Sambourne's illustrations and Sambourne's great grandson's photographs for Acne paper which featured CSM staff and alumni.
The First Floor- The Drawing Room
2nd Floor- Roy's bedroom and the Master Bedroom.
