The barrel-vaulted ceiling was painted by hand in the 1790s. The 18th Century chandelier is described as "Adam style". The house has an outstanding collection of paintings. One of these, on the left, is Nicoḷ Zen (1515-1565) by Titian, 1560-1565; this painting in the collection was only discovered to be by Titian in 2008.
The National Trust welcome leaflet handed to all visitors includes "Share experiences and photos from your time at Kingston Lacy online".

National Trust
A National Trust is an organization dedicated to preserving the cultural or environmental treasures of a particular geographic region. They generally operate as private non-profit organizations, although some receive considerable support from their national government. The first such organization was the National Trust for Places of Historic Interest or Natural Beauty, which is the National Trust of England, Wales and Northern Ireland, formed in 1895 and operating as a charitable organisation.
