From Floor to Ceiling

I've always thought that I would like to be an interior designer, but for some reason or another I never pursued it. I would always go in homes, restaurants, or buildings and was fascinated by all the intricate details of the place... in my head admiring what I liked or trying to figure out what in the world would possess someone to combine such things together.

I could imagine that having to decorate over 600 rooms would be quite a fantastic challenge. On our day trip to Schloss Schwerin, I was blown away by the splendor at which the castle was decorated... literally from floor to ceiling, not one room was left without fine and intricate details to boast of and yet each room was completely unique.

I'm not sure which one is more mind boggling... the thought of living in a place like this or creating all the lovely details in a day and age where hand tools and technology were unheard of.

  1. Ich wohne im Norden, war aber noch nie im Schweriner Schloss. Das werde ich bestimmt bald nachholen, weil deine Bilder einfach so einladend sind.

    Viele Grüße

  2. hey, handmade was supported! =)

    I have to say I really like that wooden railing. I could actually see something like in a regular house as one of those 'special features' =)

  3. This is so timely! Bryan and I went to the Biltmore this week and I was talking about how amazing and different each room was as well as thinking about the age in which it was created. I think the floors of this castle were my favorite pictures. Thanks for sharing.
