No strangers to ostentation, the Vanderbilt's spared no expense at The Breakers, their 1895 gilded 'cottage' in Newport, Rhode Island. There are a number of exquisitely painted decorations, including a couple of the prettiest ceilings I've ever seen. Unfortunately; no photography allowed. If that's going to be the case, then please at least give us a decent bookstore!
