Dennis Severs House
Dennis Severs’ House, 18 Folgate Street is a Georgian terraced house in Spitalfields, London, England. From 1979 to 1999 it was lived in by Dennis Severs, who gradually recreated the rooms as a time capsule in the style of former centuries. It is now open to the public.
The motto of the house is Aut Visum Aut Non!: ‘You either see it or you don’t’.
Severs started on a programme to refurbish the ten rooms of the house, each in a different historic style, mainly from the 18th and 19th centuries. The rooms are arranged as if they are in use and the occupants have only just left.
Here is a short video tour of the house and an interview with Dennis Severs.
I highly reccomend a visit to this amazing house but you need to book ahead.
