There are many things to notice in the details of a palace, and I do not have the slightest clue about the basics of decorating or architecture. However, something that caught my eye the most at Emirates Palace in Abu Dhabi were the light fixtures.
The ones in this passageway were some of the more simple.
Several forms of lamps in an almost feathery or palm frond pattern were scattered throughout the decor of the building:
Some had more intricate bases or metal work:
And the sometimes muted and sometimes highly polished gold in every area accented by cut glass or jewels also appeared in the light fixtures.
It was as if the gold picked up the light and reflected it back with a more subtle glow.
