St Petersburg, part 2, more Yusupov Palace pictures
The fireplace from the bedroom shown in the previous post.
This time a rather fine wooden ceiling
And part of a wooden floor (avoiding the glare from a window).
The corner of a particularly beautiful ceiling.
It must be admitted that this sort of decor makes our plain white ceilings and magnolia walls seem a little lacking in ambition.
Some of the furniture in The Red Sitting Room at the Yusupov Palace.
The ceiling and lights in the art gallery
The Yusupov Palace has its own private theatre where I could have wished for a wide-angle lens or more space to take photos. This is one of the boxes overlooking the stage.
