Last week on the blog, we toured the first floor of the Pittock Mansion.
Now, let’s walk up the grand stairwell and tour the second! I wish they sold replicas of these candelabras in the gift shop…
After walking up the grand stairwell, we were greeted by some gorgeous portraits of the Mr. & Mrs.
The first room we came across was the children’s room. A puppet theater and a sausage grinder!? Amazing!
Then came a chic bedroom with a beautiful blue fireplace and ultra feminine bed. I was so in love with the floral blanket and canopy and ruby red curtain. There was also a serene sleeping porch attached to the room. I think I have no choice but to claim this room as my own.
And the dressing room attached to the bedroom has the most amazing view.
Cory and I then wandered into Georgina’s bedroom.
Right off of Georgiana’s bedroom is a lovely sitting room. A perfect place to read, sew and host an afternoon tea.
After the sitting room came Henry’s bedroom. He was a Royal Rosarian which I think is one of the most darling things I’ve ever heard! The balcony and master bath were truly amazing. It made me rethink calling the first bedroom as my own. I mean, seriously, look at that shower!? That’s some seriously high tech stuff for 1914!
I was enchanted by the wallpaper and piano in the next bedroom.
We then walked into the bedroom shared by the Pittocks’ two teenaged orphan nieces. The portraits and green wallpaper where mesmerizing.
The third floor of the mansion is rarely open for viewings (only a handful of times a year) and unfortunately wasn’t open the day Cory and I visited. Since it was closed, we headed back downstairs to check out the basement which showcases a collection of treasures, trinkets and scrapbook after scrapbook in the Social Hall/Billiard Room. Oh, and did I mention the giant kitty painting?
Well, that wraps up the inside of the Pittock Mansion! Next I’ll be sharing the outside.
