Re: Interior colour scheme and details

Sailboat interiors could use some variety. Why don't we see Louis XIV furnishings in newer sailboat interiors?

Re: Interior colour scheme and details

We jest, but in this region I can't tell you how many times I've seen a majilis or an apt seriously decked out in King Louis furniture! When I was apartment hunting in Syria I came across multiple owners who wanted double security deposits to cover their "valuable" furniture. I told them I'd pay double if they just take it away!

HI,
I agree about this being a nice updated interior.
As I recall it was the subject of an extensive paint job of both interior and hull, by CF members (unfortunately I can't recall their name or blog name). And discussed on a thread here too, with photos of their refit.

Do you have a link to their blog or site? I would like to share the link with others in the future.

I seem to recall it was an old boat, like an Alberg 30. ?

The boat's name was Varuna and the blog was www.verywellsalted.com
They have since sold their boat..

To each their own...

Colors are very personal. I like lots of color and lots of pattern, but not everyone does. So what's right for me, wouldn't be right for you. It's very individual.
