Hey All,
Im working on a Cut Away picture of Titanic and its pretty detailed. As I understand the A deck rooms were plain rooms with white paneling and the lower ones were more ornate. Can any of you guys narrow anything down for me?
Thanks

Hi Sahand,

There are a number of good references for your question, Eaton & Haas "Titanic: Triumph & Tragedy" has some excellent illustrations for example. But for the most part you are correct, the A Deck suites were plain white panelled cabins with a white painted metal bed frame, a dressing table with mirror & sink and perhaps some storage area, the famous Father Brown portrait of his A Deck cabin is a good example, although blurry and the plate is cracked. B, C & D Decks held the larger, more ornate First Class cabins and suites many with drawing rooms and private baths and were decorated in a wide variety of styles from Louis XIV to Georgian.

Hey Guys,

All the forward cabins were plain white paneling. For a good fore A deck picture, you can consult the Eaton and Haas book, I think they call it A21. That's what most A deck cabins had. The two aft ones (A36/37) had the wooden bed which was found in most other cabins on B, C, D and E decks forward. The only ornate rooms were on B and C deck between the fore and aft grand staircases.

I heard, the Titanic cabin were designed in Louis XIV. and XVI style, regency, Queen Anne, Queen Mary, Empir (style of Napoleon`s era in France) Adams, Dutch, Dutch renaissance. I can send you also examples of cabins in these styles.
