    les 4 Soeurs

     

    For the Romanov daughters- Olga, Tatiana, Maria and Anastasia, also known as OTMA.

    I do post other Romanov related stuff too, though!

The Children’s Floor - Crimson Room
This room was lined with sofas and chairs, which were covered in the same floral material which was used to cover the walls and used as curtains. A very large painting of Alice of Hesse by-the-Rhine, Princess of Great Britain and Ireland hangs on the wall to the left. She was the children’s Grandmother. There were also pianos in the room, which are out of the view of this photograph. This view shows the long vista along the windows into the Classroom, Bathroom, Bedrooms of the Grand Duchesses and Classroom, which ends all the way in the Playroom at the far end.
Lili Dehn, the Empress’s friend stayed overnight in this room during the dark days of the revolution and has left us a brief description of it:
“I spent the evening with the Empress in the mauve boudoir, and she told me how glad she was to have me near her. “I know the Grand Duchesses want you to be somewhere close to their room, so I’ve decided that the red drawing-room will be the best place for you to sleep. Come with me. Anastasie is waiting for us,” she said.
(The apartments at Tsarkoe Selo reserved for guests and the suite were situated over the third and fourth entrances to the Palace. The red drawing-room was in the private apartments. - L. D.) The red drawing-room was a fine room; everything in it was upholstered in scarlet, and scarlet and white chintz covered the easy chairs. A bed had been arranged on one of the couches, and the two Grand Duchesses, with tender solicitude, had seen to the minor details themselves. Anastasie’s nightgown lay outside the coverlet, Marie had put a lamp and an ikon on the table by the bed; and a snapshot of Titi, taken from their collection of photographs, had been hastily framed, and occupied a place next to the holy ikon. How dearly I loved them all… how glad I was that I was privileged to share their danger!
The Empress left me with Anastasia, as she wished to see Count Benckendorff, so Anastasie and I sat down comfortably on the red carpet, and amused ourselves with jigsaw puzzles until she returned.”

Anastasia and Maria’s Bedroom.
What I can tell you about this picture is that this is how their bedroom looked back when they lived there. Maria and Anastasia’s Bedroom was next door to their sister’s. It was very similar in style, except the frieze in this room showed butterflies in roses stenciled above gray-painted walls. It was also slightly larger than that of their older sisters. Anastasia and Maria’s bedroom did not have a doorway to the hall, so the first thing that is notably different in their room compared to the big pairs is the giant closet on the back wall. Secondly, the display they used to hold their icons had peaks of even height, whereas the big pair’s was staggered. Maria’s bed laid against the back and side walls (left), while Anastasia’s bed is the one coming off the side wall (right). The room was decorated in green and white and had a dressing table against the window. The mattresses on the camp beds were thin and were covered with two blankets, which were adorned with the girls’ initials. As the girls grew older, they began to decorate their sides of the room to their taste by covering the walls in framed photos from their various outings, paintings, portraits, and whatever else fit their fancy. Icons covered the rest of the walls as the girls were highly religious.
