I am so happy to be participating in "Three or More Tuesday" again! Our host is Tam at The Gypsy's Corner. Please take a few minutes to visit her and all the other participants!
Today, I am showing photos of floors! Yep...floors! My last post was a photo tour of Filoli, in Woodside, CA. It is a 36,000 sq.ft. country home set amidst 16 acres of formal gardens. Gorgeous! If you missed it, it's worth checking out.
One of the unique things in the house was the floors. All oak, but each room laid in a different pattern. Many were covered with beautiful Persian carpets, and I'll show a couple of those too..
This floor was in the Men's lounge. This is where they would retire after dinner for cigars, drinks & cards. The floor is laid in a straight pattern, but at the end of each board is a bow tie inset! Perfect for a guy's room!
Here we have two with a similar "woven" pattern. The scale on one is much larger and I love the peg detail!
Here are a couple of the carpets. The Persian script woven into the first one says, "May the wind blow gently so as not to mess my lady's hair".
P.S. Next week, we'll have a tour of Filoli's gardens!
