Adam Bedroom

Named for the English neoclassical style of decoration popularized in the late eighteen and early nineteenth centuries by Robert and John Adam, this bedroom features a magnificent decorative scheme. The ornamental plasterwork in the ceiling echoes the carpet gracing the floor. English Adam-style furniture, Wedgwood jasperware ice pails on the mantle, and other English furnishings complete the Adam-style treatment of the room.

In a portrait of Marjorie Post by Frank O. Salisbury above the fireplace, Marjorie wears a beautiful Cartier sapphire, diamond, and platinum necklace.  Be sure to look for it as you move on to Marjorie’s bedroom suite. It is often on view for visitors’ amazement—sometimes as a necklace as Marjorie wears here, or in its converted state of two bracelets and a central brooch.
