At the end of March while down in Morro Bay, CA. He-Man and I visited Hearst Castle. It had been over 30 yrs since our last visit. The tours and visitors center have changed since our first visit.
We saw a bit of everything back then, but this time that wasn’t an option so, we chose to the Upstairs Guest Rooms, Hearst’s Bedroom, and Marion Davies Bedroom.
I’ll be sharing more doors and rooms in future posts, but here’s a Guest room door.
It was one of the most decorative and opulent doors I saw while on the tour.
The entire bedroom was gorgeous; trimmed with gold leaf, and works of art on the walls, and decorating the furniture.

More about Hearst Castle from Wiki-Pedia
Hearst Castle is a National and California Historical Landmark mansion located on the Central Coast of California, United States. It was designed by architect Julia Morgan between 1919 and 1947 for newspaper magnate William Randolph Hearst, who died in 1951. The California Park Commission voted to approve its inclusion in the California State Park System, which was approved by the California State Legislature in 1954 with a proposed admission charge of $1 per person ($9 adjusted for inflation) and a 50¢ bus ride. However, ironing out the details with the Trustees of the Hearst Estate and the Hearst Corporation took several years. Agreement was finalized in 1957, and it opened in 1958. Since that time it has been maintained within the Hearst San Simeon State Park where the estate, and its considerable collection of art and antiques, is open for public tours. Despite its location far from any urban center, the site attracts “millions of travelers each year”.
