The Red and Gold Banking Room(1931) glows orange.   Hilly Meière, granddaughter of Hildreth Meière, and Vice President of the International Hildreth Meière Association, graciously allowed me to use this amazing photo.  As this writer, David W. Dunlap eloquently described it:

The Red Room is a glittering, vaulted grotto whose walls and ceilings are slathered in 8,911 square feet of mosaics that create an ambient color of blood orange, inscribed with a skein of gold highlights.

In a previous post, I wrote about orange speaking to both red and yellow, and in Meière’s room it’s as if the red and gold are creating orange out of their intimate conversation.   One Wall Street in NYC has been sold to a developer, and hopefully this will bode well for the Red and Gold Room.
