“All things that pass, are wisdom’s looking-glass.”
Christina Georgina Rossetti, 1830-1894
Best known for the lyrics of the Christmas carol, “In the Bleak Midwinter,” Christina Rossetti was also one of the ethereal-looking models for her brother, Pre-Raphaelite painter Dante Rossetti.
A portrait of Christina Rossetti hangs in this fabric-draped bedchamber featuring gorgeous feminine tones of twilight blue silk, misty taupe and copper-brown in a stunning space that celebrates the author’s Italian roots and her preoccupation with love and world beauty. Richly painted woodwork, a built in wall cupboard filled with antiquarian books and objet d’art, and a showpiece 1800s Renaissance Revival four post canopy bed heightens the suite’s dreamy romance.
