L'intérieur du Belvédère

I have shown you the Belvédère in Marie-Antoinette's Petit Trianon estate here and here. Some of you wondered about the inside, so here's a peek!
------------------------------------
Je vous ai montré le Belvédère au Petit Trianon ici et ici. Certains d'entre vous se demandaient à quoi ressemblait l'intérieur, voici donc un coup d'oeil !

Very pretty.

So elaborate and beautiful with the greenery outside the window.

There's a nice little irony of a shot of the beautiful interior of a place whose name refers to looking out. But then maybe for Marie that was the point.

Randy said...

To live in such a place. Even if only for a day. That is amazing.

I always love chronologies, and I have always liked your portraits in the sidebar. I'd like to see them both higher on the page. As for the photo today, I also love these jewel box buildings. The green coming through the window adds a beautiful flavor.

Another dome. :)

This is so lovely. I like all the painted details. I bet a lot of work went into those walls.

Elegant and elaborate!

Tracy said...

Breathtaking! People just don't put that much detail into designing things these days.

Francisca said...

This really is such a well-designed building... so much to see, yet not cluttered.

Louis la Vache said...

I love this building! I own some 18th century porcelain tea cups used by Marie Antoinette in the Belvédère. Great photo. I think this building is going to be renovated soon.
