Unlike other parts of the home, Doris Duke chose all of the furnishings in her bedroom. Bright yellow walls (originally painted purple) serve as an exciting visual counterpoint to brilliant purple curtains. The room is filled with exquisite furniture upholstered in similarly vibrant purple fabrics and oftentimes faced with the most remarkably iridescent mother of pearl—a favorite decorative material of Doris Duke’s both here at Rough Point and in her Shangri La home in Hawaii.
