Empress Alexandra’s Boudoir in the Winter Palace
The architect Alexander Krasovsky retained original elements from the 1840s when he redesigned the Boudoir (183) on the 2nd floor of the Winter Palace for Empress Alexandra in 1895. The ceiling and upper wall panels were decorated with wreaths and floral garlands.
