Quarto de Dormir
The grandeur of the bedroom where Eva Klabin slept is quite amazing. Despite the lighter touch of the décor, its intensity is guaranteed by the contrast between the gilded Baroque bedand the subtle grey-blue color of the walls, as well as the imposing but delicate presence of the large tapestry of Boys Fishing by Italian artist Giovanni Francesco Romanelli (1610-1622).
On the magnificent Tabriz Persian carpet with its hunting scenes is a duchesse chaise-longue, upholstered in pink damask and divided in the middle, offering another option for resting.
On the right hand side is a gilded Neapolitan Baroque mantle, with a montage above it on red velvet in a gold frame that completes the décor: twelve glazed round Limoges plaques portraying the Sibyls, all named, by French painter and engraver Léonard Limosin (1505-1577). A lovely French light fitting hangs from the ceiling, with Baccarat crystal teardrops and small lampshades.
In the closet, showcases display items from the wardrobe of Eva Klabin, recalling the styles of the 1960s, 1970s and 1980s: French models by Christian Dior and Jean Patou; gala gowns worn on transatlantic liners, such as gold brocade whose neckline is trimmed with amethysts; some fur stoles, handbags, French shoes with labels by Charles Jourdan and Chanel, and Italian shoes by Salvatore Ferragamo, in addition to less famous English and American designers, as well as countless matching hats and gloves in all shades, and the other accessories of her daily life.
