    Just *gorgeous*. How I love the elegance, the chandeliers, the interplay of light on the surfaces. Excuse me while I go into raptures! I’m out shopping but even viewing this on my little cell’s screen it looks ravishing.

      Kind of a public palace – I like that!

    Spot the missing-like.What we do seem to do very well{irony}is put up multi-purpose tin sheds that can be anything,health clubs,bowling alleys,supermarkets,shops etc.This is the age of the bland.

      I call it disposable architecture – or maybe that’s wishful thinking…

    Cliche, schmiche, Edward! When you’re right, you’re right. Glamourous in the truest sense of possessing a quality of fascination and allure as in myth. Ach, that sounds pretentious!

      Would you say Heaven’s ante-room was dandy, or decadent?

  6. April 11, 2013

    I love Dandy’s comment! What colors do you suppose they’ve used? It’s very glam. 😉

      Black, gold, plum, burgundy…

      • April 11, 2013

        Ha! I figured it was gold and burgundy. Always a safe guess for that time period.

        When you come visit me we’ll catch a show there 🙂

    Vickie, its wishful thinkng at the moment.Its cheap,goes up fast,can fill a retail park and a place can be open within months.Its about quantity not quality in architecture{if such things can really be called architecture}.Wel I suppose it might rust fast.Heres hoping.

    Now THIS is a lounge! Look at that impossibly high ceiling.

    I love that you post these photos.

      I’m glad that you enjoy them — and the place looks relatively the same, which is a nice thing to be able to say.
