A Life Less Interesting
What a clever clogs to show such great photos, not a lot of people would see what you do...lovely.
It's pretty hard to miss this one.Plus of course, this window leads along the arcade to Digby's the hand-made chocolate shop so I tend to gravitate that way.
All of it is lovely, Dive. I like the colored tiles and the beautifully crafted copper roof. Obviously, no expense was spared in order to create all the beautiful colors and curved lines. *Sigh.*
Mmm, it's been a long time since I've seen it in the flesh. The lettering 'Royal Arcade' is really special too. Beatiful Art Nouveauness.
It's even better inside, Speedway.Pea, "Nouveauness" has now entered my dictionary.
Wow -- I LOVE that window! And that is a lovely building. Great Nouveauness!
I too shall share the term Art Nouveauness with everyone! What an incredible set of windows!
When I looked at the picture, I realized I was imaging how the tiles textures and ridges would feel under my hand. Yesterday, at the fair, I was feeling the faint ridges still in the shaft of a jog-cart that was being made. There's nothing like it is there - the feel and finish of something shaped by hand, both useful and eye-pleasing,rather than machine?If there were an Art Nouveau revival, would it be called New Nouveau?
Ms.M, it is even lovelier inside, filled with bookshops, coffee bars, health food shops and unhealth food shops (my favourite chocolatier).Mmmm … tactile tiles. You're right, Speedway, hand-shaped is best.I think maybe we should start a Nouveau Nouveau movement.
