The Gold Room
The Gold Room, sometimes referred to as the Yellow Room or the Second Drawing Room, is adjacent to the Garden Room. The oak parquet de Versailles flooring continues into the Yellow Room. This room is grounded by a carpet with subtle acanthus leaf motifs. The room is decorated with Louis XV style fauteuils upholstered in pale yellow and gold silks. A grayish-brown marble mantelpiece in the Louis XV-style is flanked by gilt-bronze sconces and built-in cupboards. The walls exhibit 18th-century wood boiserie in the French Rococo style and are painted in shades of cream and gray. The paneling is heavily ornamented with carved classical motifs including scrolls, shells, acanthus leaves, flowers, bamboo, egg-and-dart moldings, etc., from the baseboard to the cornice. A cove moulding, painted in the same hue as the boiserie, separates the ceiling from the cornice much like the design of the Garden Room.
