The room was quilted on all sides, as well as the floor and the ceiling, to prevent any accident from the carelessness of those who carried me, and to break the force of a jolt, when I went in a coach.
Все стены комнаты, а также потолок и пол были обиты войлоком для предупреждения несчастных случайностей от неосторожности носильщиков, а также для того, чтобы ослабить тряску во время езды в экипаже.

Once, however, Yevgenia glanced into the Prince's chambers: piles of books and old newspapers towered up in the corners; ancient armchairs were heaped on top of each other almost to the ceiling; portraits in gilt frames covered the floor.
Но однажды Женя заглянула в княжьи покои: груды книг и старых газет высились холмами по углам, старинные кресла громоздились друг на дружке почти до самого потолка, портреты в золоченых рамах стояли на полу.

He was so surprised at seeing me jerk back that he rolled over as he was ascending, to watch what had happened, and hit the ceiling with quite a thud.
Он настолько удивился, увидев, как меня отбросило назад, что перевернулся налету, чтобы посмотреть, что происходит, и с глухим ударом врезался в «потолок».

It was June, so the storm windows were down and the breezeway was nothing but a wide passage with floor-to-ceiling screens on both sides.
Стоял июнь, вторые рамы были сняты, и проход представлял собой широкий коридор с тонкими экранами от пола до потолка.

Suddenly, a door clicks hastily behind me, the quick patter of feet, softly rebounding from the walls, the ceiling—and there she is—light, airy, somewhat breathless with running, breathing through her mouth.
Вдруг сзади торопливо брякнула дверь, быстрый топот, мягко отскакивающий от потолка, от стен, – и она, летучая, слегка запыхавшаяся от бега, дышит ртом.

Here the walls are painted a dirty blue, the ceiling is as sooty as in a hut without a chimney -- it is evident that in the winter the stove smokes and the room is full of fumes.
Стены здесь вымазаны грязно-голубою краской, потолок закопчен, как в курной избе, - ясно, что здесь зимой дымят печи и бывает угарно.

Sam well knew that he had only to remain quiet, and the women were sure to talk; so he looked alternately at the tin saucepan, the toasted cheese, the wall, and the ceiling, in profound silence.
Сэм прекрасно знал, что ему нужно только помолчать, и женщины непременно начнут говорить, поэтому он в глубоком молчании рассматривал по очереди: жестяную кастрюлю, поджаренный сыр, стену и потолок.

It was, in its way, a very charming room, with its high panelled wainscoting of olive-stained oak, its cream-coloured frieze and ceiling of raised plasterwork, and its brick-dust felt carpet strewn with silk, long-fringed Persian rugs.
Это была красивая комната, с высокими дубовыми оливково-зелеными панелями, желтоватым фризом и лепным потолком. По кирпично-красному сукну, покрывавшему пол, разбросаны были шелковые персидские коврики с длинной бахромой.

He raised himself and folded his arms; the long shadow of his cap was bent from the wall to the ceiling.
Он приподнялся и скрестил руки; длинная тень его колпака перегнулась со стены на потолок.
