Madame du Barry's Gambling Salon

This salon is sometimes mistaken as the Corner Lounge most likely because the rooms look very similar and are located right next to each other. It has the same white panels with the golden edges and boiserie. However, the fireplace is different (a deep red marble) and instead of a bust of Louis XV - which can be found in the Corner Lounge - there is a bust of Madame du Barry in quite a peculiar colour. Between the deep window sills there are two cabinets each with a large, white vase - they must have been a pair since they match each other completely. A rather large couch with cream, gold and rose-coloured silk also matches the chairs placed up against the wall.
