Two items before getting started. Two years ago today I started this blog; time to get geared up for Year Three. And it is going to be a long night here in Ottawa and Gatineau- the annual art event Nuit Blanche starts in the early evening and goes long into the night, so I'm going to be busy.
Now then, carrying on with our look at Rideau Hall. Moving beyond yesterday's brightly coloured Tent Room was this pleasant space. The rug and furnishings appealed to me. The model of Rideau Hall is on the cabinet in the center of the room, and can be broken up into pieces by a guide as a good way to show how the original home by Thomas McKay has been greatly expanded over the years.
I really liked this sitting room which was just off the central room.
They even let disreputable rogues into the place.
This doorway leads out into the room beyond, which I'll show you tomorrow.
