This room where Valentine lived in the French Quarter was decadent with color. Having pinks, purples, and blues as your favorites, it was perhaps easier to just say, “My favorite color is stripes.” The doorway to the balcony offers a momentary respite from the sensory overload. But, to the room you will inevitably return. Also, there’s no exiting off of balcony, so there’s that.
