The door in the northern wall of the Corridor leads to the Dressing Room, the southern one to the Drawing Room and that at the end of the Corridor to the Dining Room. All these interiors have smoothly plastered walls decorated with tonal painting, unsophisticated cornices and a parquet floor with a simple pattern; there are also two small corner fireplaces. The Dressing Room, which is sometimes called the Wardrobe Room, because once it had been employed for keeping Peter the Great's private belongings, is much larger than the other room intended for this purpose. The cupboard of Dutch work and a massive Italian chest for keeping clothes account for the name of this room.
The choice of furniture which had formerly decorated the Drawing Room and the small Corner Room adjacent to it, was rather casual and consisted of separate items made in the eighteenth century. At present the Dressing Room attracts viewers' attention by its rich cabinet, trimmed with mother-of-pearls and tortoise-shell over a gold leaf, a work by eighteenth-century Dutch cabinet-makers.
