Inspired by the Gallery of Mirrors Hall in Versailles Palace, this is the signature of the Melange with mirrors and candelabra on opposite ends to create depth. The large room features scenes from the four seasons depicted above, symmetrically spaced doorways, a parquet floor built true to the original, a marble fireplace, ornate lamps and period frames. A popular private dining venue during the Holiday season.

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

The formal 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 create an olde world glamour. The ornate plaster work over mirrors and doors is original.

The venue personifies the charm and nostalgia of a courtyard from southern Europe. Highlighted by a massive gazebo with overhead vines, Moorish brick and wrought iron accents, it is the perfect setting for special events and private candlelight dining.

Surrounded with the warmth of natural light, show plants and plenty of color, this is an enclosed, multi-purpose setting.

May be used as a ceremony or reception venue.  


Matisse Fountain Arbor

Matisse Garden

Named after a bronze of the French artist Matisse, 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.

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