Berrys Mill, Rome, Georgia. I don't know how I'll get something like this into a castle, but I love the look and feel. Especially the water wheel.
There we go! Stained glass, but with the ceiling. Maybe not that much. . . ideas are glimmering.
Notes on crossbeams, if needed. - Stokesay Castle, interior of main hall, Shropshire, England.
William Randolph Hearst's library. Hearst was such a prolific collector of art, books, and antiques, that his castle was actually built around how to display the collection. All of his books still couldn’t be fit into the castle’s two libraries, so he stored some elsewhere, such as in bookcases lining the walls of his movie theater room.
Amazing ceiling. No way am I attempting it, but it's certainly inspiring. - Hearst Castle Library interior
I love the rafter and arched window combination here.
