The walls of the Assembly Room of Hearst Castle are lined with walnut paneling and vivid tapestries, all dating back to the 16th century. The four photos shown here illustrate four of the tapestries found in the Assembly Room.
We were not allowed to use flash photography inside the residence, hence the not-so-bright shots captured here.
The lighting seen hanging from the ceiling are simple incandescent light bulbs, which William Randolph Hearst was said to like and did not want covered with diffusers.
