An ornate ceiling

A taste of whats to come. San Simeon had some of the most ornate ceilings I've ever seen; Room after room after room. Many are ancient originals shipped from Europe while others are copies made for Hearst and designed by the architect Julia Morgan. This one in a guest house was custom, notice the medallion in the middle? It says San Simeon; Just so you know where you are I guess! Happy Weekend!

Love the ceilings at San Simeon. In one of the duplex suites in the main house is a ceiling that used to grace Stanford White's NYC house.

I hope there were lots of chaise lounges around so that you could lie and look up!

So jealous! When my husband and I arrived there during out honeymoon, the house was closed for the day, so we had to settle for the visitor's center. Thank you for the photos -- it reminds me of our amazing trip ten years ago.
