The Lyric Theatre Series II - The Details


Many of you who  have followed my blogs for a while,  know that it's all in the details for me. My camera is drawn to them every time.  This day, I wandered alone to the balcony of the Lyric.  What a wonderful find....these two strips of molding by the window with the noonday sun streaming in.  I know the renovation will be a blessing, but somehow I hope they hang onto these treasures, on this wonderful old plaster wall with its layers of (peeling) painted history.

Here are two fine videos that you will enjoy here and here.

i, too, hope they use these bits and pieces leftover from the old days to help them make design choices for the remodel.

I hope if they cant save the existing detail work that the renovation includes making the new look like it did when it was new ... recreating the old.

That's why we should leave a much greater space to incorporate these kind of elements in the renovations we undertake.

I'm a detail fan, too. There were two small stained glass windows in the old, uninhabitable house my daughter and husband had torn down to build a new one. I had the keep the windows to incorporate in something...they still have them, but we have to figure out what to do with them!
