While an overhead view of a room provides an excellent perspective from which to study the arrangement of furnishings, it is not how most of us relate best to the spaces we encounter. For such purposes, it is better to look about a room from the point of view most familiar to us. To this end, let us step into the Hall from the front door.
From within the entryway alcove we are much better able to admire the numerous objet d’art and great works of portraiture hung about the walls. Directly ahead, we can also see into the Foyer (dark at the moment). The East and West Corridors lie to the right and left, respectively.
