The “Blue Room”

Originally Mr. Butterworth’s dressing room, the Blue Room included built-in cabinets and wardrobe areas to store his clothing. After Mr. Butterworth’s death, Mrs. Butterworth removed the wardrobe elements and redecorated with silk floral wallpaper. This room became a sitting room where she often ate her breakfast. As the photo shows, the room later was converted into a bedroom, possibly occupied by a staff member to be near Mrs. Butterworth’s bedroom as she        grew older.
