To Russia With Love
A friend of mine has shared her pictures from Russia, which I can’t wait to share with you. At the top of my list is the Hermitage . When it comes to extremely beautiful places like Verseilles and Catherine Palace they are all incredible, but the Hermitage has a beauty which is much more refined. Yes, there is a lot of gold leaf but the application is more delicate and pleasing to my tastes.
Today’s room is Pavilion Hall in the Small Hermitage. Please note the panels with the gold leaf background and white ornament. We are designing a foyer for a client with this look.
