Strolling through the internet I recently came across Kettle's Yard, the former home of Jim and Helen Ede in Cambridge. Here you can take a virtual tour. Brian W. Ferry took some very nice pictures of Kettle's Yard, take a look here and here.

Jim Ede's vision was of a place that should not be "an art gallery or museum, nor [...] simply a collection of works of art reflecting my taste or the taste of a given period. It is, rather, a continuing way of life from these last fifty years, in which stray objects, stones, glass, pictures, sculpture, in light and in space, have been used to make manifest the underlying stability." He had been a curator at Tate Gallery in London and gathered a big collection of artworks which are all displayed in the house.
