Astor library, design by Albert Hadley
Sister Parish (White House dressing room)
Thanks to the Devoted Classicist, I have some photos of the Astor Library the way it was when Albert Hadley decorated it. The photo above is from recent years when the house was for sale. Please go to the Devoted Classicist's blog to read more about this fabulous room.
Here is the original painting over the fireplace, compare to above:
And another photo of the room, with the original rug and chairs.
