PHOTOS BY @aliceinherpalace have been featured in the weekly 30 Images series here before, but last week Vogue featured the 17th-century mansion, Nantclwyd Hall, that belongs to the blogger & her husband Tom Naylor-Leyland. The manor has been in Tom’s family for generations. When Tom & Alice are not running Tom’s family’s Talbot Hotel in Malton, England, they spend their summers in Nantclwyd Hall with their two children, Billy and Nancy. The original house was built in 1622 and was owned by the Thelwell family and was later purchased by the Naylor-Leylands in the mid-19th century. It features 10 bathrooms, 20 bedrooms, winding staircases and many of the original to the home.
“The interiors received a refresh as well when Tom’s father enlisted interior designer John Fowler to update the estate. Fowler famously lent his talents to Buckingham Palace and is often credited with inventing the humbly elegant decor that is now commonly associated with traditional English country homes: a reverence for the past mixed with a thoughtful use of color and jaunty patterns.” –from Vogue
