Leighton's stunning house in Kensington is a prime example of high Victorian aestheticism. The most beautiful room in the house is the Arab Hall, with turquoise tiles, some by William de Morgan I believe. Lord Leighton was a great painter and at the center of the art scene in London. The house has a great collection of paintings by him and his circle. There is a nice garden in the back, which was closed because of rain. Lovely museum. I would have loved to attend a concert in their big room.
