House for an Art Lover in Glasgow

I finally got around to visiting the House for an Art Lover during the Glasgow Doors Open event in 2017. The house was designed in 1901 by Charles Rennie Mackintosh and his wife Margaret Macdonald as an entry for a German design magazine competition.

However construction of the House for an Art Lover wasn’t started until 1989, with completion in 1996.

There are some fantastic lights in the House for an Art Lover.

My favourite room was the Music Room, entered through doors decorated with stained glass.

The room was set up for a wedding reception taking place that afternoon.

The Dining Room was pretty impressive, if a bit dark for my taste.

I really liked the House for an Art Lover. It’s located in Bellahouston Park, which lies close the J1 of the M77.
