We love strong women in history, ruling with silken fists and making the most of their curtained realms of power. We love Catherine de' Medici, the kind of strong, bold, woman of heart and mind who could (and did) rule whole countries from her bedchamber. She kept a velvet wallpapered office to do official queenly business at her chateau, Chenonceau, and she kept a silken lined boudoir at the Palazzo Riccardi from which to do unofficial queenly business in Florence. This luxe palazzo corseted waspie, with its luscious guipure lace, trompe l'oeil banding, and divine saturated bordeaux palette would fit in perfectly at that gorgeous seat of power.
