You have arrived. Gray St. Germain and Crème a Marfil marble gleams invitingly beneath your feet as you enter the columned East Foyer. Its centerpiece, an antique Tuscan Fountain of tan marble welcomes you to the East House.
Designed to reflect the opulence of a 17th century ballroom, the East Ballroom is characterized by unrestrained spaciousness and a 24 foot high ceiling.
French doors adorned with elegant blue silk drapes and decorative tassels open to the expansive east terrace and The Palace grounds. A graceful staircase leads up to the private Versailles bridal suite and, finally, a romantic Juliette balcony completes the setting.
The décor of the West Library is characterized by soft, cognac-colored couture fabrics and warm mahogany-toned boiserie. The focal point is an intricately hand-carved, antique French Mansard-style fireplace with painted crest punctuating its beauty.
The old world style of the West Ballroom is reminiscent of a 17th century Venetian palazzo. Gold accents complement shades of cream, deep aubergine and lush purple. A 12 foot high antique mantel originating from the north of France adds a warm glow and intimacy to the room. Three pairs of French doors provide access to the West Terrace and beautiful views of The Palace grounds.
The Ballroom’s 24 foot ceiling is home to five chandeliers including an intricate grand chandelier accented with Venetian glass. A graceful staircase leads up to the private Kensington Suite; a romantic Juliette balcony completes the setting.
