I love wandering through model homes and former homes of the rich and famous. Whenever there is a home open to the public for charity purposes, I'm right there buying a ticket. I don't want to think I'm nosy -- maybe I just have a strong nesting instinct?
Here are some photos of the interior of Ca' D'Zan, (Which means "House of John" in the Venetian dialect), former home of John and Mable Ringling. We toured it last month. Needless to say, I had a blast. Info is in the exif. TFL!
Journaling reads: "I love homes, architecture, and seeing how people live. This home is not typical! Ca’ d‘Zan is a Venetian Gothic mansion built by John and Maple Ringling. Containing 56 rooms, it has been described as “the last of the Gilded Age mansions” to be built in America. I snapped as many photos as I could during our tour, and these give a taste of the architectural details of the interior. They are a window with original glass (you can see the terrace and bay outside), a gilded interior door, and just two of the many hand-painted ceiling squares that show dancers from dozens of countries."
