Welcome to the home of Marjorie Merriweather Post.

Adam Bedroom

Named for the English neoclassical style of decoration popularized in the late eighteen and early nineteenth centuries by Robert and John Adam, this bedroom features a magnificent decorative scheme. The ornamental plasterwork in the ceiling echoes the carpet gracing the floor. English Adam-style furniture, Wedgwood jasperware ice pails on the mantle, and other English furnishings complete the Adam-style treatment of the room.

In a portrait of Marjorie Post by Frank O. Salisbury above the fireplace, Post wears a beautiful Cartier sapphire, diamond, and platinum necklace. Be sure to look for it as you move on to Post’s bedroom suite. It is often on view for visitors’ amazement—sometimes as a necklace as Post wears here, or in its converted state of two bracelets and a central brooch.
