Timbo Posted August 22, 2014 Share Posted August 22, 2014 My other half thinks that I have no common sense. If asked to cite her reasons she would probably point out that A) I am an academic (or nerd) and B ) I am a man. Although I would be the first to admit that once outside of my sphere of expertise I’m as much use as a chocolate fire-guard, I do have certain skills and proclivities...for example I do like to make sure I can find my posterior with both hands in any situation that I could find myself in. Having said that I’m about to leap off the deep end with regard to the renovation of Royal Tudor, but I am trying to research as much as I possibly can before I nail my fingers to the deck. This long preamble brings me to a question about ‘interior design’. You see I want to keep RT as close to a ‘period’ vessel as possible with only the occasional nod in the direction of modernity. As Royal Tudor was built in 1960 would I be right in assuming she would be fitted out with fabric, housewares etc from the 1950’s? if so could someone give me a nod in the right direction to do a spot of research? I have to say having Googled ‘50’s fabric designs’ I can now put some historical context to the space race. “Chhkk... Houston…” “Chhkk...Go ahead Apollo…” “Chhkk...Tell my wife...Chhkk...we can still see those living room curtains from up here...Chhk…” 5 Quote Link to comment Share on other sites More sharing options...
