7 Hammersmith Terrace

7 Hammersmith Terrace is a tall Georgian house on the River Thames that contains a perfectly preserved Arts & Crafts interior. From 1903 to 1933 it was the home of Sir Emery Walker, the printer and collector who was a mentor to his neighbour William Morris. He furnished the house with wallpaper, textiles and furniture from Morris & Co., as well as ceramics and rugs collected on his travels throughout Europe. The manner of decoration is similar to that found in the homes of his friends, William Morris and Philip Webb, the leaders of the Arts & Crafts movement. Thanks to the efforts of Walker's daughter, the furnishing and decoration of the house has survived almost exactly as it was in his lifetime. As such, it is the only interior of its kind in Britain. Visitors can hear stories about Emery and his family and friends, how the house came to be preserved and the importance of the house to the Arts & Crafts movement.
