Hampstead’s Stately Home
Kenwood House

Architecture—Since the 1920s, Kenwood House's spacious rooms and shady walks have been opened to the public, offering weary urbanites a much needed taste of country life

Image source: standard.co.uk

This 17th century stately home was bought by the future Earl of Mansfield William Murray in 1754, and given a neoclassical makeover by Scottish architect Robert Adam. Since the 1920s however, its spacious rooms and shady walks have been opened to the public, offering weary urbanites a much needed taste of country life – even if it is only in Zone 2.

They say art reflects life, and in the case of Christian Dior’s upcoming SS21 collection, it appears they might be right. The show, which will be broadcast live from Paris’s Jardin des Tuileries, will aim to reflect the new normal in which we are all living, foregrounding notions of design and wearability through the adaptation of classic Dior silhouettes for the WFH generation.
