The Dining Room is a superb example of Russian interior decoration of the early 19th century. Light walnut wood is used throughout the room, which contrasts nicely with the artificial marble of the pilasters, which are crowned with classical faces and Ionic capitals. A row of windows on three sides of the room brightly illuminates the chamber - particularly during the famous White Nights of summer in St. Petersburg, when the sun shines late into the night. The carvings in the room are the work of the artist, Demouth, and its furniture, doors and gilt bronzes all give the room a warm and inviting atmosphere. On the wall facing the windows are mirrors which reflect the Yelagin gardens, which give the illusion of transporting the lush landscape inside the room.

La salle à manger est une piéce superbe. Noyée de clarté par toute une rangée de belles fenêtres, ses stucs, travail de Denmouth, son meuble, ses portes et ses bronzes lui donnent une tonalité toute chaude. Sur le mur face aux fenêtres se trouvent des glaces qui refétent le gracieux et poétique paysage des jardins de Yélaguine.
