To the home of
Ron and Scarlett Barnes
The first thing you will see as you enter our home is the living room. Actually, we do most of our living in the den. The cats use this room more than we do.

The carpet on the floor has an interesting story. It is a Chinese silk carpet, sewn for the Emporer of China. If you look closely, you will see the royal insignia on the left border. William Randolph Hearst bought this carpet and another one for the home of Marian Davies. The affair between Mr. Hearst and Ms. Davies was the inspiration for the classic movie "Citizen Kane". My father bought the two carpets at the Davies estate auction. The other one is in the home of my mother in Denver.
