Titanic’s Interior Design

Yesterday marked the 100th anniversary of the sinking of the RMS Titanic, considered the largest tragedy at sea in history.
I got so caught up in watching the History channel shows commemorating the event, telling stories of dives that have been taken to the sunken vessel, that I started to wonder what did the inside of the Titanic really look like.

Most of us probably know what it looks like from the 1997 movie with Leo and Kate. Apparently director James Cameron replicated as closely as possible the sets for the film down to the dishes and carpets that were used on the original ship.

Have you ever seen the original photos of the luxurious cabins and beautiful rooms that were designed for the passengers? I found these online.
This room below was considered first class accommodation. Do you notice any details that still remain in today’s interior styling? Perhaps the ceiling detail or the trim?
 Aside from the state rooms for passengers, there was a swimming pool and fitness facilities.
 This was a recreation of a Parisian cafe aboard.

It also had Turkish baths, a reading and writing room and the grand staircase build in a William and Mary style with oak paneling.

This is one of the lounges on the ship.

This is the library reserved for the second class passengers.
 And the third class dining room.

Have you ever wondered what the interior of the Titanic looked like? Do any of the styles appeal to you 100 years later? Did you catch any of the anniversary specials on TV too?

  1. These pictures are AMAZING and take my breath away. Something about the Titanic really captures my heart. Even third class conditions were better then what most of those people were living in back home. Such a remarkable story and crazy how we are all still obsessed 100 years later!

  2. These are awesome photos, Jessica! Thanks for taking the time to put this together :-) As for the style 100 years later – too opulent for my taste, but I like individual features and moments on their own. The architecture and decor really was spectacular, though. Such a sad tragedy on every level…
