The Blue Room Cafe
"At the end of the lobby, opposite that
at which the main restaurant is located, is the Blue
Room Cafe, a low-ceilinged room of an early French
period of decorative treatment."
"The walls are all of natural walnut,
with tapestry panels of a similar tone. The ceiling
is rich with relief work of Francis I period, decorated
true to colors. The carpet is a beautiful deep blue
with the salamander and crown of Francis I in gold.

deep blue with gold decoration, the valances being
blue velvet with the crown and salamander enbroidered
in gold upon them. Underneath these valances and overdrapes
are casement cloths as in all of the other rooms.
The furniture is walnut, strikingly upholstered in
beautiful blue and gold striped damask. The fixtures
are of bronze delicately wrought, and so are the sidebrackets
which are of a similar design. In the center of the
room a dance floor may be made by taking up a section
