Bloomsbury

Just a peek inside Virginia Woolf and sister, Vanessa Bell's beautiful house which was home to the famous Bloomsbury Group. Together Vanessa and Virginia created this totally unique and magical home as a place for rest, renewal, artistic endeavours, discussion, and inspiration. There isn't a corner of the home that Vanessa left unpainted. She hand painted everything that would stand still. I'd love to go someday and see it all in person. A trip to England, anyone?





Here is a painting of Virginia at Bloomsbury House by her sister Vanessa Bell.

The house is now run by a trust foundation and is open for visits and planned events. So, yes, it is run like a museum.
