I have not seen any photos of interior of house taken after 1919 , but I think it would be surprising if there were none taken during time of 1919 - 1975 . House was used as Museums for many years - surely someone take photos of museum displays inside ??
There is a set of photos taken by US Red Cross & Allied Intervention Force officers in 1918 like these :

Czech General Gajda officers inside :


 This was posted before and it was felt at that time  it was more likely a  photo taken at the hotel as the furnishings are quite different from the house . Has it since been identified as  Ipatiev House ?

You may be correct - I had that photo in a group of about a dozen which all have the same markings / colours etc - so I 'assumed' it was Ipatiev. To me the door in the doorway looks correct ????
It could be another house in Ekaterinburg but I'm pretty sure it's not Amerikansaya Hotel.

Thank you, there seems no mention of such a large room in Ipatiev by Gibbs, Gillard and such later...it's a ball room seems to me. The doors of Ipatiev had leaver type nobs . There something I can't identify between the windows near the ceiling in this photo....any ideas? Thank you

To me it looks like a floor-to-ceiling mirror with a very ornate frame at the top.   Could that be some sort of banner protruding from near the top at a 90 deg. angle?

Many years ago in Yekaterinburg Avdonin showed me the plans for the Ipatiev replacement church.  I preferred the partial reconstruction of the house design, too.  It was not Avdonin's decision.  I imagine who ever paid for it decided. Money was the big issue in the mid 90's.  I have not been back to Yekaterinburg since 1997 and I have never visited the the church.  I have never been a fan of the architecture - it looks 1970's Soviet to me.
