The photo of the dining room taken at the Ritz Hotel, London, published in “The Art of Color Photography” by John Hedgecoe, gives off a very wealthy environment. The dining room has very good lighting using chandeliers, natural, and candle light. This room is for very upscale people, who enjoy tame colors and art.
Therefore, the first salient object that captured my eye was the gorgeous chandeliers. Each chandelier connects in a circular design with bronze loop chains. There are about ten petite light bulbs in each chandelier. Above the chandeliers, on the ceiling, is a painted mural. This mural has a baby, blue sky with crisp white clouds, surrounded by a border that reminds one of the edges of a film strip.
Below the painted sky mural and the chandeliers are rows of tables, with each table including two or more chairs. The chairs have an heirloom feel, like the expensive chairs one would see in antique shops, with a pattern of dark purples and greens on the back and on the cushion. On the top of the tables’ are dainty flower pots filled with light yellow dandelions and mud green leaves.
Also on the tables are china ware and sparkling silverware. The china ware seated in front of each chair accommodates a flushed, salmon pink colored napkin, which stands on its own in the shape of a cone. The plates simply consist of little blue flower patterns outlining the edge. To the right of china ware is one, crystal clear glass bowl, but underneath all the china ware and silverware, an off white table-cloth that barely touches the crimson, circular carpet.
In the far distance, a few waiters dressed in all black are preparing the dining room for either a delicious lunch or a scrumptious dinner. Which is also when I noticed all the murals pasted on the walls, I came to see a good-sized mural on the back wall confine by miniature murals, painted with rich colors: black, yellow, red, gray, and orange. Most like the other mini murals there are candles...
