One thing you have to notice about the Victorian decor found at the Hotel Boulderado is the abundance of patterns. The Victorians loved having patterns on everything -- patterned wallpaper, patterned curtains, patterned upholstery. In the words of one long-time Boulderado employee: "Patterns on top of patterns on top of MORE patterns." I thought it would be fun to share some close-ups of some of the patterns here at the Boulderado, and I'm starting in an unlikely place -- the floor.
The above photo is a close-up of the carpet in one of our Presidential Suites, 306. It will be retired and replaced later this month, but as one last farewell, I wanted to use it as the start of another sub-series within the 365 Days of Boulderado Photos, the pattern series.
