Goodbye, Fleur

Fleur Cowles's drawing room at The Albany, London. The blue room began its party career in 1780 a ballroom. Designed by Sir William Chambers, a favorite architect of King George III, the grand chamber is crowned by a ceiling of lacy plasterwork that's like a Wedgwood box. Fleur Cowles: ''I believe it's the most beautiful drawing room in London.''
