Over the weekend in California, my eye was caught by the many interesting patterns I saw in the hotel, and outside in nature. Some were repeated, some not. A guy at the hotel front desk told me that the carpet pattern in many places was the Golden Poppy, which is found in California.
This pattern and variations was found in many places in the hotel.
This one is on a high-back sofa in the lobby.
Then, there was an interesting side table, with a marquetry top, and metal stand that worked very well together. Pattern on pattern!
Then, if you looked up, you could see the right-angled patterns of the windows and walls on higher floors.
I was taken by the pattern on the elevator doors, too. My readers will know that I am a fan of the Art Deco period, and this looked like a pattern from that period of design.
Even the walls and ceilings carried eye-pleasing patterns. The first one is the front of the front desk, and the second one was the ceiling in the restaurant.
Nice lattice patterns-different execution of the same basic idea, and both very pleasing to the eye.
Speaking of eye-pleasing, this is what greeted guests stepping off the elevators behind the front desk. I just loved the colors.
And, finally, this very pretty mirror on the floor where the Hillsdale seminars were held.
Patterns, patterns everywhere you looked. Definitely not boring!
