Castle essentials

Other accessories that would not look out of place on the set of Beauty and the Beast include a commanding leadlight window entry foyer, a grand hall, sweeping staircase, formal lounge and dining, ornate plaster ceiling roses, hand painted cornices, hand carved timbers and a picturesque garden pavilion. All that’s missing is a secret pivoting bookshelf door.
