I am also making a photographic "ornament bank" for reference, both for myself and for the decorative painting world in general- it will wind up either as an on-line digital source or possibly a book.
At any rate, I need to see places like this once in a while and ask- why does no one ask me to make a room like this? because I can do it, just so you know. And what's more, I want to, and I know why it matters.
