The Return of the Chinaman Room

One Chinese, then two, then three, then... This pleasant room bears this name because of the motifs illustrating its very pretty "toile de Jouy" in acidulous tones. Beautiful woodwork completes a very harmonious décor and contrasts with a vast bathroom with a stone floor.
