|The south wall and large mural.|
James Abbott McNeil Whistler for an Englishman named Leyland and later bought from Leyland's heirs by Charles Lang Freer. I'll save you all the history as you can click the links and read more for yourselves should you want to know more.
This room however is not only an inspiration of decorative mural art, but it is chock full of pattern. A zentangle enthusiast's dream! There is so much depth and pattern that everywhere you look, you'd like to sit and figure out each pattern right there. As I was with my children (4 and 10) I was not able to just sit. I took as many photos as I thought I needed though. The security guard in the room was really nice and chatted with my 4 year old but I knew that conversation would only interest the guard for so long. :)
|Sideboard (?) under the large mural. I want one just like this.|
I will be trying to turn a few of these into patterns for zentangle use but I'm not sure if I'll get them all figured out. We shall see..

|Ceiling detail. See why I need a better photo?|
