Embassy

Picking up where I left off yesterday, here's more of the interior inside the Czech Embassy during Doors Open. Renovations have been done in keeping with the original design, and the details of the place are a pleasure to see.

  2. Though beautiful on one hand I suppose it´s very dark in winter or on grey days...
    Our bathroom has black tiles, the rest is all bright (not so shiny, though... sadly ;-)...)

    Was it cool inside? Is it very warm in the Netherlands?

  10. A lovely opportunity to visit places you don't usually get to see. It must be like our "Open House" that we have in November. Great details inside.
