Hearst Castle{Build the Dream}

I thought I was gonna be amazed entering a real castle for the first time. What really struck me was the european inspired art collections of Mr. Hearst had. Every corner of the castle was filled with antique furnitures and well preserve stuff for exhibition.The ceilings,paintings,library,the design of the rooms and beds are somewhat contemporary in their time. The roman inspired pool was really the best part of the castle. I love how the pillars was made and finely sculptured. The details was really the same as the architectural design during the roman empire. The design of the floor was also inspired in europe. It was heavenly looking at the facade,I was impressed how Mr. Hearst imagined his castle to be. He called it “building the dream”, an impossible project made possible by his own imaginations. He imagined his castle to be at the top of the mountain surrounded by beautiful garden and vast landscapes. Unfortunately Mr. Hearst didn’t really stayed that long to his castle because he travelled a lot in his time. He made this castle only for a pride to his guests and lovers. Thanks to him, I enjoyed the fine collections and the outcome of his dream. I had also fulfilled one of my dream and that is going to a castle eventough I never really saw an actual princess there.
