|The master of the house's bedroom.|
|I had to capture the beautiful carving on this chair, located in the master's bedroom.|
|And the fireplace mantle in this bedroom. It's a little bit randy, but very elegant too.|
|Where the gentleman brushed his hair and checked out his duds in the morning.|
|The private area in the sitting room between the two main bedrooms|
where George and his wife would have an intimate breakfast together.
|They wrote letters in this room.|
|They played cards in this room.|
|There were mirrors in this room over the fireplace mantels. If you look at this photo carefully, |
you'll see the carving of a little guy standing there. I just wanted to bring him home.
|The lady of the house's bedroom is located across the sitting room from her husband's room.|
It's very "girlie."
|Her chaise longue. Wouldn't you just love to take a nap or read by the fire, here?|
|Her bedside still looks like she could go curl up there tonight.|
|Something amazing about her bedroom is that the walls AND doors are curved. |
No small feat for the architects and carpenters who made that happen!
|We're getting to one of my very favorite places of the house, the reading hallway. |
Here sits a bust of Moliere, which I also wanted to take home with me. Gorgeous!
|Look at those windows! Yes, they all open. Can you imagine how it might have felt |
to have breezes flowing through the house?
|The Reading Hallway. I could spend a century here too.|
|A welcoming place for guests to gather and socialize.|
|And in the guests' socializing room there were plenty of places |
to sit and read or play music, yum!
|And in those bathrooms they had fully plumbed potties with the tank up above and a pull-chain handle. |
You can't see the pull-chain cause it's behind the door. When we lived in London we had a potty like this.
|Accommodations in the guest rooms on the third floor of the house are beautiful, |
and each includes a writing desk.
|Another beautiful desk. I'm a desk person myself, can't remember when I didn't have one.|
|Many of the desks in the house are set up for "business," in that their purpose was for |
the ladies to organize operations with their staff or lady's maids.
|There's a room called The Madonna Room, which made me tear up. |
All of the prints and ink drawings in this room are of the Madonna. Just beautiful.
People who know me know that I have "a Madonna thing," lol.
|I had to take a photo of this doorway. Look how wide the frame is, and so beautiful!|
Just one more post about this beautiful place, the Biltmore, and then I'll tell you the dream Rob and I discovered....
