Photo of the Week--5/2/11

Okay, I want my next house to have a room like this one: crystal chandelier, mosaic floor, marble walls, gilt-covered wainscoting. This is the Pavilion Room in the Hermitage, the Russian State Museum in St. Petersburg. Besides this gorgeous room (and others), the Hermitage has an amazing art collection with some 20 works by Rembrandt alone, as well as Renaissance masters, Impressionists, and all sorts of fun stuff. Of course, it was so crowded when we visited there during our Baltic Cruise that we didn't get very long looks at them, but it was still a great trip.

  1. I want this room too - but only if it comes with a maid!
