Straus Sitting Room C55

Hi All!

I am working on a rendering of sitting room C55 and I need some help with the color scheme of the furniture.

I made the walls dark wood with silver inlay like the Smoking Room, the carpet a light fawn color, the ceiling an eggshell white to better contrast the dark woodwork and the furniture and curtains are dark blue - I dont think blue is the correct color for the furniture and curtains and I decide exactly what colors to use based on the B&W shades in my photograph of the room.

If anyone can help I would appreciate it.

Best Regards,

Brian

Hi Brain,

The Sitting Room set that Cameron replicated for his movie was based on the decor of Sitting Room C-55 onboard Olympic(though in recent years the B-52 sitting room decor has been proven otherwise). I think Cameron has the sofas and carpet colours not far off. His source might just be educated guessing all from historical fact but the shadings seem to jib up with period photographs taken on the Olympic herself. I remember long ago on the net that a painted photograph depiction surfaced on ebay. This is just speculation but the artist who re-coloured the photograph might have visited this suite onboard the Olympic and coloured in a copy of the photograph from his\her memory. I think the colours were pretty much similar to Cameron's set but I would have to see the re-coloured photograph again, which I don't have. I should have printed it out when it was on e-bay some time ago.

Hope this helps,

Nigel

Hi Nigel!

Dan K sent me a private email relaying all of the color scheme information I needed, thank you anyways.

Though your post does give me something new to watch for on Ebay now!

Thanks Brian,

It is a labor intensive project, but well worth it - here is an actual photo of C-55 that I colored, the small size and low resolution doesn't do it justice however.

Good idea!
Brian R could make a compilation of all his work (which is fabulous, by the way) I've seen it in many threads of this message board but it could be fantastic to appreciate all his work in just one place.

Regards,
Diego

Hello guys!

I've seen a footage about this room, in the wreck. On the YouTube /"Titanic with Moonlight sonata"/. The Titanic's C 55 was exactly same as the Olympic's room, which was shown here. The gilded window frames, the wall coverings, the fireplace, and the ventilator on corner of table too! The wall, between the C 55 and C 57 already gone, and the C 55 bed too.

The Bruce Beveridge's plan are show table, one little round, behind the door, and the dress table near the door. But this sofa aren't. This was only in the Olympic, I think.

In the photo of the cabin C55, it appreciates a sofa and a table to the bottom of the cabin C57

I agree, but the photo of C 55 are the Olympic's stateroom, not Titanic's.

/A more little difference: the ventilator in the Titanic wreck are on the corner of the fireplace. And the fireplace have less gold than Olympic's on the photo/

Lajos, did you have the permission of the copyright holder to post that screenshot here? If so, you need to indicate as much. Keep in mind that the one who posted it on YouTube may not have had any right to do so.

Hello,

Lajos, I don't think that it's the ventilator in the wreck, on the fireplace. I think it's a clock. When you see photos of C55 in Olympic, it seems there is one, and it looks like the object on the fireplace, in the wreck.

Hello, Nicholas---

If you click on Lajos' name, you'll see that he hasn't checked in here since December. It may be a while---if at all---before he sees or responds to your message.
