Biltmore fascade reflects a European influence

The Biltmore Estate entrance

Although the exterior of the Biltmore Estate resembles a French chateau, the interior is furnished with massive pieces adorned with decor from the medieval period. I was also surprised to see few formal paintings except of family members. Much of the wall space was filled with black and white lithographs. The library was the exception where the frescoed ceiling was imported from Venice.
