Music Room

When Prime Minister Gladstone lived at number 11, this historic room was the centre of musical and intellectual salons in London. The large windows bring in plenty of natural light and the decorative painted window blinds draw the eye up to the delicate plasterwork depicting musical instruments.

The Guinness family lived at No 11 from 1875 to 1946 and it is thought that Sir Arthur Guinness is responsible for the decoration in the Music Room as his brother had a very similar room in his house in Ireland. This Louis XVI style of d├ęcor was very popular in the Edwardian era. 

Overlooking the garden, the Music Room is perfect for intimate workshops or private lunches. The central carved fireplace makes a perfect focal point for flowers. The soft cream walls make a versatile backdrop for photos shoots and fashion shows, as they can take different colours and other visual elements incredibly well. 

The room contains a useful ante-room that can be used for welcoming guests, and contains a large bar with a delightful bookshelf behind with books of varying pastel colours.

This room pairs with the Council Room for pre or post dinner drinks. In fact, with its varnished floors for dancing and neutral palate for disco lighting, the Music Room will become the life of the party after a wedding or birthday celebration.
