Music Room by Duncan Grant and Vanessa Bell for the Lefevre Galleries in London, 1932. The theme was Autumn and the walls were decorated with six flower panels, each incorporating a mirror. Other decorations included rugs, curtains, needlework panels on the chairs, lamps and cushions. Even the piano was painted by Duncan, repeating the pattern of leaves used elsewhere in the room.
