Map or Model Regarding "The Masque of the Red Death" : LUSENET : The Work of Edgar Allan Poe : One Thread

I've been reading through the story many times now and there are a lot of things I still have to understand myself despite all those big vocabularies that I've never heard of before. I have a question and I desprately need someone's help. Our group were set to do a model of the seven rooms. She told us that we should be at least accurate how the rooms look like. I already know the colors of each rooms. She told us to include doorways, light fixtures, colors of carpet, drapes, walls and glass windows. The problem is that we have no clue where to put them. How are the rooms aligned? Is there a hallway when you walk into a room? How does the windows look like? These are the questions that's really puzzling us. So I was wondering if anyone who knows how the rooms look like, could you please send me a map, drawing, model, or anything so we could complete our project? It's due this March, but I'm not sure what day it is. If you could send it to me in time, I'd be really grateful. Thanks in advance!

Well, I tried using the search engine for images earlier before I posted this recent topic. But all I get is the picture of the Red Death or the cover of the book. >.<

They are arranged from east to west starting with the blue room here is an old posting that should help you.

blue stands for birth purple stands for infancy green stands for childhood orange stands for adolesence white stands for middle age or adult hood violet stands for old age and black stands for death the reason the rooms are placed in a way that you cannot see into the other is because you cannot see what the future holds. notice, the blue room is toward the far east which stands for the rising sun and the black room is in the west standing for the setting sun. it all fits perfectly.

Hi Liz,

Yes, thank you. But I know that. However, the question I'm trying to ask is how were the windows, doors, furnitures, and rooms positioned?

For example. If I were to go to the green room, the window would be on the right, while the furnitures are at each corners, and the main door would be placed at the left.

I don't know if my explanation is complex, but as I've said before, I've tried looking for a map, model, or some kind of image in search engines, but I found none. So if anyone knows how each rooms are positioned, please help me. >.<
