Interior view

Syon House, Brentford, Middlesex

The Library, a converted long gallery, forms a dramatic contrast, extending for the whole length of the east wing. Decorated in lime green and gray, the wall is articulated with shallow pilasters, with windows between them on one side and mirrors or built-in niches for bookshelves on the other.

The picture shows the Library.
