The musical themes recall the historic use of the rooms during the Belmont era.Gold gilded Austrian Baroque style elliptical Petite Salon has 18ft windows and a magnificent spherical rock crystal chandelier.BallroomThe Ballroom is the centerpiece of the second floor, as well as the largest room in the Belmont House. The chair rail, pilasters, and frieze are entirely carved out of oak, and fine 19th century oil paintings adorn the red damask upholstered walls. Two immense bronze and crystal chandeliers adorn the Ballroom, and a huge circular skylight provides extensive natural light. One of the Belmont House’s treasures is a rare gold-leafed Steinway B Grand piano.Grand SalonPossibly the most subdued in decoration, the Grand Salon or (Gold Room), is the major drawing room for the second floor of the mansion. The walls are painted in muted shades of beige, highlighted with pale moss and adorned with gold-leaf and gold damask upholstered panels. Between the upholstered panels are oil paintings depicting exotic botanical scenes with birds. The overall effect is dazzling when the immense crystal and bronze chandelier and wall sconces are lit. Shimmering in the light are numerous antiques including the large gold-leaf marble-topped center table.State Dining RoomGlittering with candlelight, the State Dining Room has graciously welcomed Presidents and royalty alike. Elaborate banquets were served from the adjacent, but concealed Butler’s Pantry and Warming Kitchen. Guests enjoy the upward view of the magnificent Doges palace ceiling the Belmont’s purchased while in Italy. The entire State Dining Room was designed around the grandeur of the ceiling.
