The Breakers, Newport, Rhode Island

When I was at school in Rhode Island, one of my favorite things to do on the weekend was go to Newport and walk along the cliff and look at all the beautiful mansions. One of the most famous is the the Breakers mansion, as seen above. I am always in awe of the beautifully decorated ceilings and the massive chandeliers that hang from them. I can't imagine what it would be like to live in a place like that, the music room alone is 2400 sq. feet! I could spend hours there looking at all the details and feeling inspired by it's magnificent beauty!
