Grand Living Room

Grand Parlor

Inspired by the Gallery of Mirrors Hall of Versailles, this is the signature of the Melange with mirrors and candelabra on opposite ends to create depth, with scenes from the four seasons above symmetrically spaced doorways, with the parquet floor built true to original and with a marble fireplace, ornate lamps and period frames. Popular private dining venue during Holidays.

 

Breakfast Greenhouse Room

 Greenhouse Room

Now a breakfast room, the Greenhouse is an airy sunroom with plenty of natural light and happy colors. The orientalist theme is reflected here with vintage portraits of ladies from the East on the walls. The private dining corner has a loggia view of the Matisse Fountain Lawn and the gardens. 

 

Turquoise Room

Turquoise Room

The official Dining Room of the Melange is a popular venue for private dining and celebrations with small groups. The play with light from mirrors on all walls and doors provide visual depth to an olde world glamour. The plaster work over mirrors and doors is original.

 

Mediterranean Courtyard

Mediterranean Courtyard

This venue personifies the charm of a typical courtyard scene from southern Europe. This intimate setting is highlighted by a massive gazebo with overhead wines, Moorish brick and wrought iron accents and tropical greenery in the summer. Mediterranean Courtyard is a popular locale for special events and private candlelight dining.

 

East Porch -1024x669East Porch

Surrounded with the warmth of natural light, show plants and plenty of color, this is an enclosed, multi-purpose setting opening to the Mediterranean Courtyard and to the Pan Fountain Patio. The orientalist theme is continued with vintage portraits of ladies from the East in ornate frames. Special events may use as a ceremony or reception venue.

 

Front Lawn Matisse Fountain

Matisse Fountain Lawn

Named after a bronze of the French artist Matisse adorning its brick fountain, this park-like setting is the first impression of the Melange for the arriving guest. April into November, the garden has a continuous color palette. The wrought iron gazebo is the favorite spot for nuptials as well as the most photographed setting as a departing souvenir. 

 

Pan Fountain Lawn

Nestled between lush greenery and floral color on three sides, this garden, patio and lawn combination is the perfect backdrop for an intimate dinner or for a special event. A giant maple tree dominates the scene, the romanesque arbor with brickwork and the Pan-Fountain accent the rest.

Tile Pavillion

An exotic, all-weather party venue in the gardens, the pavilion is named for the colorful tiles from Turkey adorning its walls. With its inviting and happy ambiance full of natural light, the Tile Pavilion is ideally suited for corporate events and larger wedding receptions alike.
