This guest bedroom is quite nice, but will be made over using decorating ideas from The Breakers, Cornelius Vanderbilt II's summer cottage in Newport, Rhode Island.
The bed is no longer the focal point of the room, but it still commands attention with a toile bedspread, grand window treatment and painted boxes above with urns inside each.
New upholstery on the existing chair and the painted boxes inside decorative trim carry The Breakers theme around the entire space.
Note: We regret that specifics are not available for the featured friezes over the doorways.
This lovely painted blue sky in the great hall at The Breakers was meant to make that room look as though it were open to the heavens.
