London's Decorative Details

Many of my days in London were spent wandering around my neighborhood admiring the architecture and decorative elements of the homes.  Every item was an opportunity for refinement and expression.  A stark contrast to so many cookie cutter homes in America.  No cement slabs for the walk up to your front door; rather intricate mosaics or playful polka dot fun.

Why bother with a boring, brass doorknocker – when you can have a whale or a fox or the goddess of love herself?

And what about the beautifully detailed windowpanes?  Such lovely designs, with each pane catching the light differently.
