Children's rooms

Children's rooms

There are two children's rooms - a bedroom and a playroom - linked to each other by a doorway. Both rooms have their own access to the gallery on the main staircase. The master bedroom can be reached from the children's bedroom via the lady's dressing room, and the balcony above the dining room bay can also reached this way.
The furniture in the children's rooms is made of soft wood in smooth, geometric shapes, lacquered in bright yellow, blue and green; it was made by S.B.S. Brno. The metal beds did not survive, and were remade according to the documentation available; they are lacquered a dark red colour, matching the radiators. The linoleum - which for reasons of hygiene had no carpet over it - was also red; while that now in the room is new, it was supplied by the firm of DLW, who were suppliers of the original.
Linoleum also covers the upper surfaces of two identical square tables in the two rooms. The chairs and Windsor armchairs made of a dark stained wood were not preserved, and have been remade. The folding lamps with their biconical parchment shades, again identical in both rooms, are also new. The lamps on the bedside tables in the bedroom, with round shades of a milky glass in a brass sleeve, were obtained from a building of similar age. The inner fittings of the cupboards, lined with mahogany veneer, have not survived.
The red school board was again mounted on the playroom wall, and a large couch with striped upholstery placed in the room. The two-part hangings separating off a recess containing a washbasin and a third bed are made of the same material.
