Sadly, the housing is slightly more pedestrian here. The only thing that room is missing is an opium pipe and accompanying lamp. And a skull. Every student needs a skull.

I think that the room needs a cut crystal decantor filled with brandy.

If it were an English University room prominen in the picture would be Teddy Bear named after a C16th Italian Saint.

'My study's ornament: thou shell of death, once the bright face of my betrothed lady...'.

Actually, just whisky in a decanter and gin in a bottle.

Actually, stick with a decanter of whisky and a bottle of gin.

I was just there a couple weeks ago.
Yale that is, not my alma mater.... that was about ten years ago.
