Harewood House

I recently revisited Harewood House located just outside leeds. The national trust House was build for Edwin Lascelles in the 18th century. Each room is filled with beautiful furniture, paintings and china. The furniture is mostly designed by Thomas Chippendale as he lived in Otley.
It is a really amazing and historic house, as you wander through each room you learn more about the Lascelles family, who still live there today. I discovered how Edwin Lascelles earns his fortune that pays for Harewood House to be built. Each room also has such an impressive individuality the decoration varies greatly, each room incredibly impressive in a completely different way.
