Draped In Exquisite Natural Daylight

A leaflet advertising Down Hall Country House caught my attention today, largely thanks to its rococo wording.

Not only does it possess ‘tranquillity and serenity’, ‘high ceilings and wireless internet’, but it boasts that it’s ‘draped in exquisite natural daylight’.

Lovely. But isn’t EVERYTHING draped in exquisite natural daylight? At least everything above ground, during daylight hours. Surely ‘draped in exquisite natural daylight’ could be used as an epithet for anywhere –

Baghdad – draped in exquisite natural daylight

Mogadishu – draped in exquisite natural daylight

Peckham – draped in exquisite natural daylight

Kabul – draped in exquisite natural daylight

Swindon – draped in exquisite natural daylight

Middlesbrough – draped in exquisite natural daylight
