Bloomsbury in Sussex
From Vita yesterday to Vanessa (Bell) and Virginia (Woolf) today. I've had a day filled with bloomsbury characters, their richly decorated homes and their simple but beautiful gardens.
The garden at Charleston Farm was laid out by Roger Fry (founder of the Omega Workshop) to enable Vanessa Bell, Duncan Grant and whoever else was currently in residence to always be able to pick something to have in a vase in the house to paint.
It's relaxed, welcoming and full of colour.
