Hearst Castle: Library

Ahh, the library {insert heart emoji here}. Doesn't it look like a room that would be in Hogwarts?

Like the guestrooms, I was in awe and in love with the ceilings in this room. Like, how can I get a ceiling like this? What's the process? Does it make any difference in terms of sound echoing and bouncing around the walls when multiple people are talking? Side note: we had to keep our voices to a minimum and only could speak one at a time or whisper, so I couldn't tell if the shapes of the ceilings made any difference to the projection of sounds.

I think this is the one room that I just tuned out the tour guide completely because  I was so awestruck with the space. I know, the style is very excessive and ornate...and typically I'm more of a mid-century modern gal, but it's just amazing the amount of work the craftsmen put into this place to make everything by hand.
