A Royal Intervention

A Royal InterventionFrom exquisite Flemish arrases in the Tapestry Room and brilliant sapphire-hued damask silk Chippendale elbow chairs in the Blue Drawing Room to the dazzling splendor of the Pink Dining Room, the prismatic interiors are not only pure joy for the eyes, they also illustrate the ebullient empiricism of the time period. Italian architect Andrea Palladio’s influence spills from the façade into the dramatic Entrance hall, leaving no doubt that this is an affluent family. Brimming with coats of arms, crests, and cartouches of ancestral properties, the cavernous space also features a thistle motif—a nod to the 5th Earl’s order of chivalry.
