    hello again!
    I was wondering if anybody could tell me the exact style for each stateroom on these 2 decks. I'm making a project about Titanic period styles and I need the info. I really appreciate your help.
    Best regards,
    Diego

    Hi Diego,

    Which two decks were you referring to exactly, B & C I am assuming.

    As for the exact decor each and every cabin was furnished in, the only people who know that are those who built them and those who occupied them, the only cabins we know the exact decor of are those that have been photographed, as for the rest, we can only speculate.

    Best Regards,

    Brian

    Hi Diego,

    The First Class "period" suites were decorated in eleven different decor styles, and these were:

    Louis XIV
    Louis XV
    Louis XVI
    Modern Dutch
    Old Dutch
    Regnce (also spelled Regency)
    Queen Anne
    Adams
    Georgian
    Italian Renaissance
    Empire

    I can list which cabins were which privately as it took me years of research to learn what I'm telling you now, and I don't care to hand out anymore freebies to the forum, lol.

    Best Regards,

    Brian

    Diego and Brian

    I'm not sure when the new book is coming out (Titanic: The Ship Magnificent) but it will certainly be some time later this year (hopefully April). In it, I go into detail about the various period styles used and the variations thereof, as well as the style of every B and C Deck stateroom which used these and other H&W styles.

    Although there were 11 different period styles used, some actually had more than one variation, such as the Empire style (which had 3). So you end up with more than 11 unique representations of the various styles. Contrary to belief, there actually weren’t all that many staterooms decorated in a period style.

    Daniel.

    I based this stateroom of of blueprints, no pictures. C68. I will be changing a few things. I would like to know what you all think should be changed.

    Just curious, but in the photograph of B-59, in Old Dutch, there seems to be no "stateroom hathook" to the left of the inter-connecting door, above the pillow. Is the hook there and just not clearly visible? This has bothered me for years.

    The suites on the Titanic

    The first class suites were beautiful, especially the private tour the rich furnishings of the cabins. The suites were reserved for the rich, such as showers, bathtubs and sinks, including the restrooms wonderful. Everything was beautiful on the Titanic.

    Ride first class private.

    Passengers have access to the richest exclusive suites. This suite of private tour of all the suites in my opinion was my favorite and most beautiful, clear that all was beautiful.And also that the rooms were bigger rides each about 50 feet long, and one on each side walkways.

    This suite was B60

    Some of the cabins of the Titanic had connecting doors so that the occupants could directly from one room to another. So that means for example that a man and a lover of the family could occupy the first quarter and the second and KIDS in the third person. This suite was B60

    To find lasting fame in the Guinness Book of Records? Caroline must by now have created the highest ratio of new threads to posts on ET. 50 posts and how many new threads? 40? 45? I'm way behind - over 5,000 posts and only 2 new threads. My excuse is that I start a new thread only when it's necessary.

    Granted Bob. But it is quite a feat indeed, considering that Caroline's first language is not English.

    I'm more curious as to the motivation for the last post. Particularly the bit about the admirable practice of having a lover in the next room. (I can just imagine my wife's reaction to that situation).

    Caroline,

    You seem to be referring to (aludir a) a photograph or photographs and research you have done. If we cannot see the same photograph, we do not understand what you are writing about or your reason for writing about it.

    Cordialmente,

    Jim C.

    Glad to have you here, Jim. I've tried in a number of Caroline's threads to make helpful suggestions about how to best use the forum, but clearly there are language difficulties. You're the very man to help overcome them.

    And regarding lovers, Jim, the preferred arrangement is to establish this new member of the family in your own room and move the wife to the next room.

    In that case you'd best install your -er- friend not just in another room but in another ship. Ideally in a different ocean.

    All very well, but how do I explain 'nipping out for a minute' and coming back a week later?
    Add that to the fact that as I am an ancient mariner, each trip would take me longer and longer. Some things just do not work. Despite having the most modern aids to communication.

    Well, you could at least try the traditional Captain Oates manoeuvre: "I'm just going outside and may be some time." But we all know what happened to him.

    So that's where the expression 'sowing one's wild oats came from'. Well I never!

    PS Don't eat the yellow snow! How's that for a P..S?
