Ruby Tuesday 2 - Capitol color

Third floor, CT State Capitol, Harford
Ruby Tuesday 2 returns for the week, and a recurring red is found inside the Connecticut state capitol building. A color that predominates is derived from, but not a pure, red. I still don't know which. It appears to be sort of but not quite pink, mauve or dusty rose. Whatever hue it may be, its appearance on lots of trim in the 1879 structure is very nice. However it may be described...

I enlarged your photo and what amazing mix of red colors. In Norway their called "Old fashioned rose"; but that's probably only a local designation.
I also admire the intricate and very symmetric patterns. Neo Classic, maybe?

What a beautiful Capitol building. I'll have to visit it sometime.

Looks like mauve, I think.

I have never been inside a capitol. I see many from a distance and by the look of your capitol it looks very elegant. Love that detail. Thanks for the visit.
