NOTES: The original scheme for this room was by Sir John Soane in 1827, who designed a starfish shaped vault for the ceiling. This was subsequently stripped out at the behest of Sir Charles Grevill, Clerk of the Privy Council. The room was later 'restored' by Barry, who reset Soane's design of the ceiling rose, ensured that his original oak panelling was repaired and that his grey marble fireplaces were left in situ.
