Whitney House Staircase. Note the large palms to the right. A tapestry appears to be hanging on the wall to the left. Heavy draperies are hung to the right, either over a doorway or window opening.
Whitney House Hall. Perhaps a Jacobean or Elizabethan design is being executed in this room? It has a medieval feel to it.
Whitney House Dining Room. This room features a similar ceiling to the one in the hall [see above]. Murals appear to have been painted on hte walls.
Whitney House Drawing Room. This room appears to favor Louis XV and Louis XVI designs.
Whitney House Library. A very large mantle is featured in this room (note the sofa size in contrast).
