A one night stay in the Shafer Baillie Mansion in Seattle was an interesting taste of how the other half might have lived a hundred years ago. The ground floor of the mansion was equipped with a library, above, a large dining room, and a lovely sun room. The kitchen and any other working spaces for servants were, naturally, behind closed doors.
The living room was decorated for Christmas. I took this shot with my phone. Not bad, eh?
This is one of the bed and breakfast guest rooms which would have been part of the family quarters when it was a residence.
I was taken with the gorgeous woodwork. I’ll show you a few more details tomorrow.
