Secret Door

May 25, 2016

Jib doors, once used to hide entrances to service quarters, are so amusing to me. We have one that’s built in to a paneled wall below our staircase that I like to tell people is the trap door to the dungeon. I find them so quirky, and there are so many playful ways to hide them, whether it be with paint, paper or a faux bookshelf. The Queen has her own jib door, in the White Drawing Room, that leads to official rooms from her own private quarters. I wonder if hers is covered in De Gournay paper? I hope so.
