Ornately elegant! Such richness in woods and cloth! One wonders what important decisions were made in this room in years gone by.

An incredible masterpiece!

Judy said...

I think the word elegant describes this perfectly.

A sitting room--rectangle table, round table, decisions to be made. Very ornate. MB

Birdman said...

Ornate chairs sometimes disagree with soft butts.

There is quite a lot to see in this room.

Elegant and ornate and beautiful, JM, and so are your captures for the day. I do love the detail!! Have a great week

Such opulence! Of course, the artistry is magnificent. However, I just finished watching "The Tudors," and have a different "perspective" when regarding such incredible wealth and the means by which it is/was acquired. But, that's just me, and it doesn't diminish your gorgeous photography.

RedPat said...

Your pics are always so rich and these ones doubly so!

Worthy of a museum exhibit, beautifully photographed, as ever.

Hilde said...

in those pictures you reproduce the richness and the athmosphere of old days very well! sublime!

Jack said...

What a place, JM, what a place.

Randy said...

Very beautiful but a little fancy for me.

Bob Crowe said...

Professional quality architectural/decorative photography, but so hard for Americans to relate to. Opulent beyond our so-called Gilded Age.

Merisi said...

Gorgeous room, great captures.
Still, makes me feel uncomfortably warm looking at all that upholstery. ;-)

Whichever way you look at it JM this is a very grand room..
