Those words are all words we English use with affection, admiring as we do the eccentric. The doors of this handsome mansion were opened by a bow-tied and frock-coated Jim who ushered us into his lavish and museum-esque home. even the lilies were gilded and no surface was left free from interesting objet d'art. But if the detail was visually rich and slightly overwhelming it was also perfectly judged in the bedroom where for example burgundy coloured face cloths invited those wishing to remove make up to partake. Home made bath salts added pleasant smells to the whirlpool baths. Beds were lavishly festooned and about 4 foot off the ground. Downstairs a 24 hour chocolate 'gallery' provided easy temptation. Curiously less than 12 hours after standing saying our farewells to our attentive host in Bealle Mansion we are in Beale Street Memphis where loud blues music is only out-noised by the Harleys. Contrast or what?
