Metropolitan Museum Inspiration
We haven't been to the Met in a long time. I wanted to go see the Charles James exhibit which was phenomenal (see conversations side.)
But we of course had to do a quick spin through the joint while we were there. They had a display of Wm Morris stuff...very disappointing as it was so tiny...just a few fabrics and wallpaper samples. Still, what was there, was lovely.
I had to go visit the tiffany windows, of course. A must see for me at every visit. These windows have zero paint...all of the color comes from the glass itself. Quite amazing.
We hit the roof-top garden for some great views of the city.
Had to stop by to see the faberge stuff on display.
And went to see the period rooms. Had no idea that they actually moved a Frank Lloyd Wright room to the place. My cell phone camera was not up to taking pictures of most of it as one whole wall is glass facing central park. The ceiling was full of stained glass, and the use of space which is so much a hallmark of FLW was apparent with low entrances, grand open spaces, cozy edges with built in seating all along. Quite something.
And as we were running out of time, we took a quick run through some of the European interiors. OMG! Simply OMG! Tapestries, wall papers, murals, furnishings, chandys, window treatments, fireplaces, ceilings, YOWZAH! Talk about design inspirations!
