The Blue Drawing Room - St Michael's Mount

The Blue Drawing Room on St Michael's Mount is a fine example of Gothic rococo styling. So named because the walls are painted baby-blue (which you can't see here!) the room was created between 1740 and 1750.

The location of the room was originally the 15th century Chapel of Our Lady which had fallen into disrepair.

The room contains paintings by the renown Cornish painter John Opie, Chippendale furniture and some fine Italian red jasper and alabaster vases.

This photo dates back to the 1940s but not much has changed.
