Le lit du roi

The king's bed. Crimson velvet and golden brocade.

Velours cramoisi et brocart d'or.

Bonjour Ciel ... I've visited this magnificent room and love it's opulence.

Michelle said...

Love everything about this. The colors and the opulence.

I'll take one of those!! I, too, love the colors and opulence!! Terrific capture, Ciel! Hope you have a great weekend!

Very fancy indeed. Regarding your question about the August date on the truck, it's the Gay Rodeo here in Santa Fe.

Oh my, that is......claustrophobic but beautiful---I think.

Oh us Amuricans!

Love the flowers in the church garden. How funny to have to step out to text. MB

Mon Dieu. Si c'etait moi, le roi, j' en changerais.

C'est certes beau, riche et tout, mais je ne peux m'empecher de penser à la chaleur qu'il doit y avoir la dessous en plein été.. et là, au secours! :o)

And he could sleep here? Give me a cot!

The grandeur of the room is fit for a king. Absolutely ravishing!

Sumptuous but claustrophobic...

Oh I've seen this also Ciel, so very grand! OMG I love the way you say you'll be in Paris for the day as if...eh! Oh how I would love to be in Paris for the day instead of searching around for old chimneys hahaha!

The portal appears to be down again for our CDPB July Theme Day of Chimneys. I have reprised the alternative method of linking used when we had issues last March. Please check here and join in if you are of a mind.

Ah, just like my bedroom. Doesn't everyone live this way?

I think that with so many colours (and bright ones...) I'd have a hard time to shut my eyes...
God bless you!

I remember that. I think we also saw the queen's bed and heard the stories how everyone gathered around to watch her give birth. What fun that must have been!

Personally, this would be a depressing place to sleep. And if I was the king, I'd worry about cutthroats sneaking around all the golden brocade trying to slash my throat as I was dreaming of an even bigger empire!

Not for a claustrophobic guy like me! :-) It's beautiful, of course.
