The Yellow Room presents a contrast to the English Manorial style of the Great Hall. The Duke family displayed period appropriate art in keeping with the classical design elements of the room.
Doris added her own touches to the Yellow Room—pairing new acquisitions with her parents’ collection. Her additions include the Rococo gilt wood double doors, and the parquet de Versailles floor, which continues into the Music Room. Doris originally installed the 18th-century oak flooring at Shangri La, her Hawaiian home, in 1938, but in 1973, she had it removed and shipped to Newport for installation at Rough Point.
