detail in decor...



One of the best parts of one of my favourite movies, Marie Antoinette, is the amazing backdrop of Versailles... it always has me thinking... imagine living in a place as grand and yet so elegantly designed like that? All the ornate details and architecture... so beautiful. Not sure where the above photos are taken, but how lovely it would be to live with art like that!

*Update: Madelene from Le Portillon has let us know that they ARE from Versailles! Of course! So gorgeous...

I was at Versailles on wednesday, I pretty much melted it's so stunning. All my sentences began with 'imagine if...' or 'If only I could...'
