Those are really bright colors. I guess it's to wake you up in the morning.

Bob Crowe said...

I do! The color and texture are so rich it takes on three dimensions.

In her bedroom! The colours would keep me awake, I'm sure, but they'd be cheerful in a morning room, with plenty of coffee.
Beautiful photos.

Those are indeed stunning colors. I wonder how old that carpet is. It looks like it could be new.

@ Stuart: manufacture de la Savonnerie, second half of the XVIIIth century (but designed in 1738).

Yes, quite striking. I want to walk there.

Effectivement pas le genre de tapis à placer n'importe où mais ravissant!

Thérèse said...

Pas mal d'inspiration à y piocher en extrayant chaque détail.

Beautiful, deep, rich colors! I'm also fascinated by the turquoise-colored ginger jars on the fireplace mantel.

I'm amazed at how vibrant the colors are. It complements the parquet floors very well.

Jack said...

Wow! That is a fantastic pattern.

Stuart said...

Thanks for the response as to the age of that magnificent carpet. I find it amazing that its colors remain so vivid after all this time (and so many people treading on it).

@ Stuart: I don't know when the last people, with the exception of palace employees, have trod on it! It is out of bounds for visitors.

Everything is amazing in this room!

Linda said...

Great color! A bit gaudier than most folks would have today, but I suppose excess was in style back then.
