Fonthill: East Room Bath – Spanish Brocade Tiles

The East Room Bath is a short walk up a set of stairs from the East Room.  It is a tight space decorated with a Spanish Brocade tile motif (I think?).  Compare this with the previous post on the Smoking Room.  To cover the bright light from the skylight through the deep shadows in the corner, I processed 3 images in HDR.  My objective was to cover the dynamic range without making it look like a HDR image.

Out of curiosity, I asked the staff if some of the individual tiles had fallen off from within the circles.  There is no record showing the wall with all the circles filled in.  During installation, the artisans may have temporarily installed tiles, then moved them.
