Hi All!

Here is my newly completed depiction of the Britannic First Class Reception Room.

Good morning to everyone!!
Today, I was exploring Facebook, and I found in a group some beautiful renderings of Britannic´s interior spaces. Those detailed images (created by Giovanni Castro) showed the proposed interiors for Britannic, from First Class parlour suites to the A la Carte Restaurant. One of these images showed the D Deck vestibule between First Class shell doors and Reception Room. In the rendering, it appears that the wall panelling is brown (wood´s natural colour), instead of white.
Was Reception Room planned to be brown instead of white? And what about furniture, did they changed them, too?
Please, if anyone knows some about this, answers would be really appreciated.
Thank you!!

Good Evening.
Do you have a link to the Facebook group or other link to the images? I actually have one of the Britannic windows from the reception room. It had white paint (and a load of brown paint, and some colours) on the frame when I bought it but it looked quite rough and had obviously seen a little action since it was left in a Belfast warehouse when the ship was converted for hospital duty. I have stripped the frame to nice waxed bare wood but am aware that on Titanic all was white. I would be very interested to know if the Britannic panelling (and hence, window frame) was intended to be natural wood.

Thats awesome! I have yet to see one of the windows in Private collection. Thanks for sharing! I have a chair intended for the A La Carte Restaurant. I'd be happy to post too if anyone wants to see.
