A magnificent Solarium in a Pasadena home designed by noted architect Paul Williams. Built in the 1920s, this house maintains the original travertine and black granite floors. A pair of mismatched antique Turkish carpets complement the hand stenciled Italian clouds at sunset on the painted ceiling; the cream and celadon awning striped silk draperies complement the cream silk upholstery, limestone center table and stone planters; the antique wrought iron chandeliers with gilded details and the fourteen-foot fishtail palm trees create an "umbrella-like" atmosphere all softening the grand proportions of this huge Solarium.
