The spectacular white-panelled Music Room (set up for a wedding reception)Left: looking west toward the piano; center: looking east toward the fireplace
The window-wall with six curved French doors opening onto the terrace balcony; repeated curve in the shallow barrel-vaulted ceiling
Curved French doors with flanking fabric panels a la Margaret Macdonald
The fireplace wallAndrew MacMillan comments on this end of the room: "At the other end of the room the fireplace provides the excuse for more tree-like forms, this time in silver painted wood with iron stalks, and stained glass leaves, and itself is an interesting composition of squares within squares, enlivened by two circular ceramic plaques (the prototypes of which have recently come to light) set into a painted and stencilled plaster surround. Flanked by deeply recessed and modelled cupboards with beaten silver handled doors the whole effect is cool but rich" (Cosgrove 28).
