The lovely State Reception Room carpet is featured in Kate’s watercolors. Grand images of the State Reception Room are also shown. We are in love with this building!
The carpet in the State Reception Room floored me.
It is so oddly modern when in fact it is a century old.
Meandering big bold flowers in electric wool
colors appear from the tropics!
Not even the touch of mauve against eggplant
bothered me because somehow it all works.
Until recently, this was the largest rug in the world.
Now a Saudi public building has that distinction.
I wanted to give you context on this amazing carpet in the room!
Initially I intended this to be a sepia page which would hold writing, right. Watercolors leapt to the page of their own accord. This is where I got into trouble.
