The Mauve Sa­lon

All About History - - THE ROMANOVS -

For sev­eral years the Mauve Sa­lon was one of the most fa­mous rooms in Rus­sia as it was the pri­vate boudoir of Em­press Alexan­dra. It was her favourite room in the Alexan­der Palace, where she spent most of her time and re­ceived her friends in­clud­ing the no­to­ri­ous Rasputin. Alexan­dra dec­o­rated the room af­ter her mar­riage, choos­ing a soft li­lac shade and English style that re­minded her of her child­hood at her grand­mother Queen Vic­to­ria’s court.
